This is the over-ear digital earpiece that amplifies and clarifies voices. Its advanced microchip detects incoming sound levels and provides continuous volume regulation while its noise-free setting filters out low-frequency background interference, making spoken words clearly audible, features only available from Hammacher Schlemmer. A second setting disables the filter, ideal for amplification when in nature or in an otherwise quiet environment. With a microphone that picks up sounds within a frequency range from 1,200~1,600Hz, the amplifier provides optimal sound levels to a maximum 25dB gain, ideal for meetings, television, or auditoriums. Its rechargeable battery provides up to 12 hours of operation from a seven-hour charge using the included carrying case, which includes one AA battery; also recharges in five hours via the included AC adapter. Includes three differently sized silicone caps to accommodate all ear canals. 1 1/2" L x 1/2" W x 3/4" H. (1/4 oz.)

I was sorely disappointed.
By Desperate to hear
from Pepper Pike, OH
Even using the smallest size ear plug/dome, it worked its way out of my ear and produced a LOUD, disturbing noise. While inserted, I still couldn't hear or understand the person seated across from me at the table in the restaurant. I was so hopeful, but the Voice Clarifying Over the Ear Amplifier is not the answer. It has some nice features, mainly the fact that it can be recharged, but unfortunately it didn't improve clarity or the ability to communicate. I was so hoping it would.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It performs as advertised
from Marysville, Pa
The voice clarifying aspect is great. didn't know you had to have it in before turning on. Made a piercing noise. Volume control is something I'll have to play with. Will use when I go to movies, outdoor events and theater productions. Product arrived on time. Ordering service was great
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Better than any expensive hearing device I have used in terms of sound quality. But very big and clumsy compared to those devices, and difficult to keep behind the ear when glasses are used.

Amplifier works as advertized

Inexpensive and helps with voice

Voice clarification works, but is a little irritating

A great instrument!
from Kinston, North Carolina
Most important to me is that it is adjustable; if it is too loud, I cab turn it down; if too low, I can increase the volume. Another nice feature is that its power last through a normal day's use; very compact; well made; easy to use.

Does not work well for me
from Colchester, VT
This amplifier is advertised to be tuned to amplify frequencies in the normal voice range. However, I found it amplified all noises making some very loud and annoying. Also, there was a constant rushing noise, possibly background noise that I can not normally hear. May be OK for some people, but not for me.

a good product
from Bowie, MD
I use this amplifier at class room discussions, conferences, and rarely at the movies. It is a useful tool which allows one to hear very soft voices and in a group being able to hear allows for better participation.

I would definitely recommend this.
from Cromwell, MN
I use this product at work. I can hear softer voices now. It can be a bit hard to get on just right. It takes a little extra time to fit right, but it's worth it to be able to hear better.

Believe what you hear !!!
By Rick M.
from Baton Rouge, LA
This was a gift for my Mom. She recently was fitted for some very expensive hearing aids. She tried them and very quickly decided she could not wear them. I got one of these for her to try and even though she does not like the idea of needing "assisted hearing" she found this unit comfortable and very helpful and so far she is wearing it.
