Sheri Ann Richerson from ExperimentalHomesteader.com is joined by Jeffrey Rhoades to talk about the ClearHear Hearing Amplifier that she received for review.
I was very excited to try these because as a child I lost my hearing. I have never had a hearing aid and although I did regain some hearing after a surgery my hearing has never been up to par. I miss out on a lot of what is said – or sometimes do not hear people well enough to understand what they said so I have learned to just agree. Sometimes I will ask them to repeat themselves but am often told to listen or pay attention the first time.
We had to charge them for 12 hours before their first use. They are super simple to get started with. They come with little stands that each hearing amplifier sit in and they just plug in. To use them, you take them out of the stands, turn them on with a little button and put them in your ears. I did have to take mine out and adjust the volume that way as the volume adjustment wheel is very small and I had an issue being able to access it with them in my ears.
The plastic piece that connects the two pieces together does show, but I have long hair – and even if I didn’t, I prefer to hear than to complain about a plastic tube.
It is odd at first. You hear yourself talk and that is weird. I have not had any other hearing aids so I cannot compare them but I do know I could hear other people talk as well as a little background noise – and this was with just one in my ear. With two the difference in what I hear is amazing.
I really like this set of hearing amplifiers. I can take care of an issue I have without needing an apportionment to get my ears tested or deal with ordering one once I do then waiting a while for it to arrive. I just went through this with an elderly person I cared for and this process was much faster and easier in my opinion.
