V28472 - Bell & Howell Silver SonicXL RechargeableDeluxePersonalSound
works fine for me
I haven't had any problem with it humming or anything. It helps a lot since I am just starting to lose hearing in one ear. I said I wouldn't recommend because so many others are having trouble.
Works great for me, love it!
I read the other reviews and was apprehensive of ordering this, but I am so glad I took a chance. It's possible the other's weren't using it correctly. You have to start with the frequency on low and then adjust the volumn to suit you. I've tried the other hearing devices that are sold on TV and drugstores, but after using it just once or twice the batteries were dead, just a waste of money. When I saw this one with the rechargeable battery, the name Bell & Howell and the great clearance price, I couldn't resist trying it. I am very pleased and I will order another one so I can keep one in my purse.
What a disappointment. Non stop humming no matter what you do. Adjusted the volume and still not corrected. Even my hard of hearing grandmother heard the hum.
Don't waste your money for return sthipping.
I COULD NOT EVEN USE THIS IN MY OWN HOUSE. IT PICKED UP REFRIGERATOR RUNNING--FURNACE/AIR CONDITION BLOWING NOISE. I CAN ALSO HEAR BETTER WITH OUT IT.
HARD OF HEARING IN WV
As with the other reviewer, to much Hissing sound, cannot believe this product made it to the market place. Back it goes.
Poor Quality Product
Very disappointed. Bought it for my elderly mother. There was much "hissing" noise in the background, didn't help her at all.
Couldn't even hear the TV sounds.
Wont fit the ear right..humming noise even when volume is turned down. I can hear better with out it.
Don't waste your money
Since we live full time in a class A motorhome I thought this would be an excellent way to watch TV without disturbing my husband. However the background noise hisses in your ear making it almost impossible to hear what you want to hear. You have to turn the volume way up to make out the TV and then it is too loud fto be comfortable. It doesn't have the ability to choose what you want to hear, it magnifies every sound in the room including fans, etc.
Do not work
My husband wear an ear aid, we were happy to find something that do not need batteries, but did not work, he try it many ways possible, did not work. Hope we got a defective one....
BELL & HOWELL DUD
Received Personal Sound, charged it as ordered. I was exited to have a product like this so as not to bother other people when listening to television. I put it in my ear, which was a challenge, once I got it to stay on I turned up the volume slowly and all I got was a VERY LOUD ringing in my ear. Did nothing to increase the volume of the television. Would not recommend this item to anyone,
