Not perfect but okay and useful
on July 31, 2013
This sound amplifier is okay and useful. I can confirm that there is a higher than normal background noise like other users are complaining about. My elderly father uses it on the lowest setting in order to reduce the background noise. It helps him with normal conversations and with listening to the television set. He was frustrated with using his expensive hearing aid which would keep losing its batteries and would also last for like 1-2 hours. This device has a great battery life and last a pretty long time (almost a full day). No batteries to buy and its easy to recharge. This device has a lot of potential and is priced right. It just needs some minor refinements and testing.
I purchased two of these devices through Amazon.com since it was safer to shop through. I heard of a lot of complaints from people purchasing the item direct through MSA30x.com's website. Service and delivery through Amazon was quick and no-hassle.
Again, this device might help some people with minor hearing loss but if you need a louder device, this device might not be for you because of the enhanced background noise is not filtered well when you increase the volume. When you turn up the volume, you get more background noise or static. It basically drowns out the noise you want to hear when amplified too much. Overall, its a cost affordable device and might help those with minor hearing loss but its not perfect.
