    I bought this item for use in a small group of friends who meet weekly for discussion of books we are reading and the issues of our lives. Our oldest member has lost so much of her hearing over the 7 years we have been together that she could no longer follow our discussions or participate in them actively, even with hearing aids. So I went online and decided the Pocketalker looked like the best solution and ordered it. It has proved to be a real breakthrough for my friend and our group. She is now able to hear everything and we are again enjoying her interesting and valuable contributions to our conversation. She has found it useful to her in many other listening situations as well. My hearing is not so hot either, and I may get one to take with me to larger group events, so I can laugh at the jokes like other people.

    Mom goes almost deaf in about 8 months, but is saved!, October 5, 2011

    My mom (aged 90) saw an advertisement in AARP and Reminisce Magazine and wanted to buy another brand at $500. Her hearing had seemed to go from not great to none in a short amount of time. She is under Palative care from a large HMO, but I couldn’t get her “team” interested in giving her a hearing test (she needs special transport to go out of the facility where she lives). Checking out the other brand on the Internet I just had a really bad feeling about it, and at $500 was so much more than any other similar product, and did not have a return policy unless it didn’t work out of the box. I had given my mom TV Ears, and then later the TV Ears speaker (also bought here) which worked for awhile and now work just great for her. So finally the HMO suggested this product and I got one for my mom. Mom is stubborn but once I finally taught her to move the microphone piece from the TV Ears speaker to aim at a person walking into her room it worked great!!!!! The HMO finally started to clean her ears, 5 or 6 professional ear cleanings later she can hear great using this product. (and the TV Ears stuff too) Perhaps the HMO will give her a real hearing test, but as always AMAZON comes thru. Love the way Amazon presents information about all their products! Easy to compare online!
