Rated 3 out of 5 by smcgowen New Use for Old Standby My parents are hitting their 70s, and each of them has issues with their hearing. They won't get hearing aids because they say that they cost too much. My mother's doctor asked her to try one of these, so I purchased a set for each of them. They're great for mild to moderate hearing loss. Are there issues with them? Sure. A whistling sound if you use a cordless or cell phone in the same ear, and there's no off button, so you have to pop the batteries out when they're not in use. But for the price, these go a long way in assisting low-income families with a high-priced necessity. December 6, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by joesc great for the money The directions were wrong about the battery placement . Not clear enough but a good value for the money .Wind noise is also a problem but did work well in no wind .No on\off switch and batterys were hard to get out. October 27, 2010
Rated 2 out of 5 by AALEPRA Just OK For the cost, I would say the product works best as an indoor or "no wind" outdoor product. There is a constant "sea shell" type sound that you here. If you are looking for more of a true mid-grade hearing device, you may wish to spend a bit more. Other than that indoors it seems to work fine. Battery(s) must be removed to shut off...This is a poor man's hearing aid for sure... April 20, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by alabud good product purchase The ear bud hearing system works well and is a worthwhile purchase especially for people with some hearing loss. As an avid turkey hunter,I use it to help locate gobbling birds at daybreak and it also helps listen for turkeys walking in the leaves. One warnig tho,don't wear them around the house because you will not be able to tell your spouse you did not hear her. The product could be improved by adding an off setting to avoid running down the batteries and wind noise is also a problem. April 5, 2010

Details:im 51 years old and have worked road cont. all my life and have been around alot of loud noises that has damaged my ears and so on, at night when we sit down to watch tv i have to turn it up so loud that others are putting there fingers in there ears, and i was thinking of trying something like this and was wondering how long of battery life they have. ty
A:Yes they will help considerably. I did try them with the tv but I do not know the battry life while in use. I do know that I left the batteries in the units in what I thought was in the "off" position and when I tried to use them a couple of days later the batteries were dead and had to be replaced. So if you use them for tv I would recommend removing the batteries after each use.
A:According to the paper work about 30hrs. I have been using mine about 30 hrs and they are working just fine. The batteries are very inexpensive so it works for me.
