What was that .. did you say something
I got one of these the last time hey were in stock. It almost burst my eardrum! really loud amplification. Unfortunately there is no setting to mute really loud noises, so when my grandson screamed near me, it nearly put me through the roof.
My hearing loss is mainly caused by tinitus masking quiet noise, so maybe a good buy for someone with acute hearing loss.

Maybe best for the hard of hearing to use for watching TV or using telephone etc when theres no children or loud people around, maybe good to consult your own GP to get properly diagnosed at hearing aid clinic for the more worse hard of hearing persons
Do these work if your ears are fine so I could listen to music louder without actually turning it up?

Probably, if you want to damage your hearing X)
A good way to drop a hint to that person you know who always needs everything repeating at least once.
good for someone wondering if they have hearing loss. Wonder if this would amplify sound for birders.
hearing aids are free at NHS and are fine tuned to suite the type of hearing loss, don't go buying these or any other over the counter hearing aids they won't do you any good.

​if you are wondering whether you have hearing loss or not just book a hearing test with your gp
Sounds good, thanks OP
I have terrible hearing, for years I had trouble hearing TV, some conversations etc. Lady in NHS Hearing department said it wasn't bad enough to justify hearing aid. So if you are in same situation one of these could be really useful.
I had another hearing test couple of years ago and now have 2 hearing aids, seems it is more the higher end of vocal range that is affected. I try not to wear them when my daughters are visiting, a lot more peaceful LOL
HAVE I MISSED THIS DEAL?
Free on NHS.
In all seriousness you should always be assessed professionally by NHS or other, as using a more powerful hearing aid than you need will actually damage your hearing long term.
I'm an Audiologist and please (please, please) go to your GP and get referred to the hospital to be assessed. NHS hearing aids look so much better now and are so technologically advanced. You really run the risk of damaging your hearing if you use this.
I've seen one patient who had this on- he was so relieved he could hear properly when we fitted him with a real hearing aid
As a fellow audiologist I echo everything catrina_131 has said. Please do not risk damaging your hearing and have it tested professionally.
As a 60 year old lady who goes to Torquay Hotels for my holidays whilst my sister is selling my house I can heartily recommend these What !

These are great, but are even better if you can block unwanted noise entering the ear canal. A cheap hack is to insert the hearing aid and from Poundland buy a tube of silicone sealant and the cage.
Cut the tip off the tube- only a small hole get a friend/ or it your arms are long enough, yourself- and slowly pull the trigger whilst positions nozzle behind the hearing aid sleeve/tip and let it fill up the ear canal and the outside of your ear.
This will give you a perfect deal of your ear and save you a fortune getting an audiologist to do a ear mold.
2 part epoxy-resin is better, but it has a very short working time and it can get quite warm.
Polyfila can be used, just make sure it's not too runny, or too thick- as you don't want it breaking off in chunks because you didn't add enough water.

I have hearing trouble, the hearing tests are different now to make them more real life rather that silence and tones. Maybe go back and try again. I have tonal trouble in both ears for different reasons but def worth going again for a retest
Louder please!

PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS. just go to your GP and get a referral to your local Audiology department, the aids are soooo much better now than they used to be
