MicroBionic is a miniaturized sound amplification device which uses a discrete ergonomic design. Said design lets it fit into either ear with ease. Plug it into the wall and let it charge, then wear it all day. Never miss what someone is saying to you. The technology captures and amplifies sound waves in much the same way as the brain should normally. In fact, the unit was independently tested for its accuracy and effectiveness in either ear.
The cost of Micro Bionic is $29.95 plus $6.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Micro Bionic by paying the extra shipping fee of $6.95 for a total price of $43.85. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at buymicrobionic.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Micro Bionic and has taken down the website. Micro Bionic may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
Purportedly it amplifies sound up to 45 decibels, which is higher than other amplifiers on the market. .
The unit is lightweight and comfortable, easily fitting into either ear.
You can select where you hear, so that in places like crowded religious services, at the movies, or in a restaurant, you can hear only what you want to hear.
The unit is rechargeable so you never have to use batteries again.
There are volume controls in conjunction with on / off controls.
You get extra ear tips in addition to a cleaning brush and storage case to hold the adapter and charger.
Studies for this unit purport that even slight hearing impairments can reduce your earning potential, increase your feelings of isolation, enhance the chances that you will fall, and lead to daily complications. However, with units like these you can enhance and amplify hearing so that none of these are problematic.
Easily fitted into the ear, the amplified fits tightly behind the ear after which the amplification and sound levels can be adjusted with one switch.
There is a humming noise that goes on while you are operating the unit. In some cases the unit emits its own feedback squeal the same way portable amplifiers do for guitars. The volume has to be turned down as low as possible to eliminate this, which of course alleviates the ability to hear distinctly lower sounds. With no clip to hold in place, while they do fit snugly into the ear, walking around or being active could present a problem, and cause them to them fall out.
Said device propagates sound by aerial and bone conduction using the small amplification in the unit. What results is a vibration inside of the upper part of the cranium and the ear’s auricle. Sound devices used have been tested in a laboratory, perfectly designed to stimulate the inner ear, targeting the places that impact motor functions and auditory functions. First, the sound propagates in the tympan. Bone conduction triggers a reflex to contract and relax the hammer and stirrup muscles. As such, the effect relies on perceptual sound contrast that, in effect, surprises the ear.
While sound is fed through the hearing aid, it acts on the tiny stirrup and hammer muscles located at the base of the eardrum in such a way that the vibrations stimulate the cochlea. Cochlea is located behind the ear drum, and the vestibule located on top of the cochlea. Your cochlea is lined with hair cells whose purpose is converting vibration into the electrical stimuli fed through the neural network into the brain. This feeding process controls the amount of cerebral activity.
By charging the cochlea, the brain is, by extension, charged too. Consumers' inner ear, made up of the cochlea and vestibule, stimulates the brain and improves hearing no matter how loud the crowd.
When wearing it in your ear, sound goes through the outer ears through the inside of the air conduction canal after which the vibrations are translated by the nervous system into the brain. As the sound waves are transmitted through the bones in the head, it sends vibrations to the cochlea in the inner ear, which is then sent through the eardrum. While this is a natural process, the purpose of hearing aids is to simply amplify this natural air and bone condition process to help you better understand and process auditory information.
An alternative sound amplifier which weighs just shy of half an ounce is offered by MSA. This amplifier comes with six different ear bud shapes so that you can pick the one which best suits your body. Unlike competing products, this unit is rechargeable.
Like most hearing aids, it does have a fixing mechanism that goes behind the ear though it can fit the left or right ear. You do not have to buy two separate ones, just two regular ones, if you need them in both ears. When wearing it, the amplifier claims to amplify sound by a factor of 30, the levels for which can be adjusted. There is even a cleaning brush to keep it clean.
ClearHear produces a similar amplifier whose sound levels are adjustable. There are distinguishing levels for soft voices or speech far away, which allows users to improve personal communication, amplifying whatever sounds they want to hear. The small device is shaped similar to the micro device, so small and without a back piece that most people will not know you are wearing it. Here, the tip of it is designed to hold securely within your ear canal so that you get increased amplification with decreased feedback or whistling. What’s more, said unit is inexpensive compared to other units on the market.
This unit uses an auricle fixed line so the shape changes to the shape of your ear, thereby offering better support. Said design also prevents the earplugs from falling. While small in size, the units are easily concealed and still comfortable to wear. You can recharge the units using the USB charger. There are low power and power saving options so that if you are short on power, you can use less for the time being.
Charging the unit for just two hours will keep it running all day. The embedded earplugs give you clearer and louder voices. What’s more, they have professional hearing aid horns to help you with high frequency and low frequency noise.
With this unit you save money. There is a digital amplifier set for left and right ears that is supported by ear doctors, who encourage the use of it without needing a prescription. Said devices are rechargeable. You need not waste money on regular batteries.
Instead you can use the AC power adapter or the charging dock to charge it on the go. Complete with a cleaning pick and brush, cleaning is made easy. So you can use it and clean it for less money.
