I’ve heard that they’re useful for hearing impaired patients in the hospital. Change the earpieces and staff have an easy way to communicate without yelling. I think it would also have been helpful for my father in law who hated his hearing aids and didn’t wear them most of the time. I think using something like this when he felt left out of a group conversation would have been helpful.

It depends upon the cost. I have expensive hearing aids. Many cannot afford them. This may be a device that could help individuals on a low or fixed income especially if it became easily available. I have friends that use very crude amplifiers that help very little.

A trial would be interesting.

This appears to be similar to the Bellman Mino I have been using as a replacement for my hearing aids.
Being able to place the microphone closer to the person(s) speaking is very helpful for me.
The directional microphone on the Bellman is useful in a noisy environment as well.

Looks interesting. Of course, cost would be a big factor. One thing is a deal breaker for me. I can’t stand to wear ear buds like the ones that are shown with it. If it came with smaller transducers so domes could be used, I might give it a try.
