I've only had the micro plus for one week received it on Feb.

After I turned the volume up enough to try and pick up the sound, the static hum from inside the ear piece kept me from hearing what I was trying to hear.

I've only had the micro plus for one week received it on Feb. 16, 2012 and all I get is a loud buzzing noise and a lot of back noise from any other noises in the room. Now today Thursday Feb. 23, 2012 it does not work at all and I would not recommend this product to anyone.

The claim is "amplifies sound from 100 ft away!!!" NOT TRUE. I bought one, it didn't work. I contacted the company and they said to send it back and they would send a replacement. Guess what??? Didn't work! They send another replacement that also didn't work and the customer service rep said to send the product back (I had already PAID postage with tracking sending the others back) and since all three didn't work, they would issue a check for $19.95. I did and now they say they won't issue the refund because I didn't ORDER THE ORIGINAL ONE FROM THEM. They have my product, my money, and have cost me over $10 extra in postage. This is not a reputable company and the product is phoney. DO NOT BUY FROM THESE PEOPLE!

We have begged and pleaded with my 87 year old father to get a hearing aid but the ones purchased just don't work for him. They have ranged in price from $200 up to $600 and for whatever reason, he is not comfortable with using the devices. Well, this last Christmas my sister picked one up at a local retailer, and gave it to my dad, asking him to just try it. He did, and liked it. Don't know why, don't really care why, except now we can talk to him in a normal tone of voice. I did happen to test it myself last night just to see how loud the volume was and I thought the sound was very natural, no distortion. The unit is small but not too small. We are buying two more units to give him as spares for his birthday this weekend. It's miraculous, really. I'm not associated with the maker of this device. I'm just grateful.

Since we just purchased it, I'm not sure how long it will last. But the peace in the dining room from not having to hear everyone yell is worth buying a few every few months if necessary. It works for us, that's all I can say.

Two of these were written by the same person. Probably a stooge for the seller. One is written by a salesman for the company. I do not think any of these reviews are legitimate.

During the first charge the top popped off unit when charging. Then the hearing aid fell apart and the circuit board fell to floor

This "personal soud amplifier" did not amplify sound very much. I literally had to take it out of my ear to try to notice the difference between unamplified sound and amplified sound. In any case, the battery failed in a few days. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
