Magic Ear conversation
The Magic Ear is an electronic audio device with headphones that amplify the sound while filtering the ambient sound. Given the prohibitive price of hearing aids, it is not surprising that products such as the Magic Ear are becoming increasingly popular. However, this product should not be considered as an alternative to high quality hearing aids, but only as a primary sound amplifier.
To use Magic Ear, simply plug in the supplied earphones, press the power button and select the volume level. I was surprised that the volume selection is quite loud every time a button is pressed. In addition, touching or handling the device while it is in use produces a fairly loud sound in the earphones, as these sounds are also amplified.
The Magic Ear really amplifies the sound, but it seems to work better in quiet places. Although compact and discreet, Magic Ear will always be visible, unlike more expensive hearing aids. In addition, these audio amplifiers amplify of all tones, often creating unwanted static and background noise. This problem mainly occurs in noisier environments than in quieter places where the noise sources are minimal.
As you can see (and hear) in the video below, the magic ear tends to amplify background sounds while amplifying the sound. In a busy room or in a noisy car, for example, I don’t think the benefits will outweigh the distractions of static and other environmental noises, which will also increase. In a quiet room, however, you can hear the television better thanks to the magic ear.
Another observation, neither positive nor negative, is that the sound amplified by Magic Ear is generally in the middle of the audio spectrum, with much less bass and treble than what the ears naturally hear. It gives it a kind of old radio sound, which is unpleasant, but it’s probably worth mentioning.
I don’t think Magic Ear is totally devoid of virtues, but I think the sound environment around Magic Ear can make a big difference in the satisfaction of your product. Don’t forget to watch the video below, in which you can hear the audio samples directly from Magic Ear and compare them with the samples taken with a normal microphone.
Perhaps the design closest to Magic Ear is the much more expensive Williams Sound Pocketalker, which currently has 4.3 of almost 200 reviews. For an amplifier that resembles a hearing aid, you may need the Sentire Digital Hearing Enhancement Sound Amplifier, which is technically not a hearing aid but is similar to it.
