HOW PERSONAL AMPLIFIERS WORK
Hearing aids are for listening in generally low background noise situations like your living room, or in the dispensers office. The Pocketalker is a high quality listening amplifier that assists HEARING IN NOISY BACKGROUNDS such as restaurants, automobiles, and parties -- in other words, in the real world. And by using the 12-foot mic extension cord, you can use it for LISTENING TO THE TV. It helps hearing in two ways -- both vital to understanding speech:
1. It amplifies the higher (treble) frequencies and 2. It acts to pick up the sound closer to the source by placing the Pocketalker Mic closer, thus eliminating much of the background noise and providing a better speech-to-noise ratio (SNR) which is essential for understanding.
The laws of physics dictate that the most important factor in hearing clearly is the DISTANCE from the sound source to your ears. Therefore, when you reduce that distance by placing the Pocketalker PRO microphone nearer to the source, even a foot or two, you significantly increase your chances of actually understanding what is being said. Until then, just keep nodding and smiling when everyone else does.

SE-1 Economy Amplifier Takes The Worry Out Of Being Close -- And Not Understanding
The SuperEar is a hearing amplifier with 50+ dB gain and a unidirectional microphone. You point it in the direction you want to hear. It operates on a single AAA battery (included) and has a volume control. It is sold primarily for bird watching and similar activities, but we have found it to be excellent as an economical personal amplifier for understanding conversation in noisy backgrounds. Some distributors of this device make the claim that it picks up sounds from 100 yards away -- sure, if it's a thermonuculear explosion! But we have found that it works excellently in cars, restaurants, and other places with background noise and comes at an a very affordable price. The package includes a headset or single flexible tip earbud (pictured). that fits easily into the ear. Weight 3 oz. One year warranty.

Hooking between the base and handset of your telephone, the Model 1693 amplifier enhances speech discrimination and clarity by having 6 adjustable speech frequency bands from bass to treble. You may thus tune this amplifier to compensate for your specific loss by increasing or decreasing each frequency band. (This is best done using your audiogram). Listen with headphones, neckloop, silhouette, cochlear implant adapter cable, or direct audio input (DAI). Listening with both ears using headphones can make a critical difference.
