A hearing amplifier is a hearing gadget that can help people who are hearing impaired, hard of hearing or suffer from a minimal to severe hearing loss. These hearing gadgets are useful for people who are not hearing poorly enough to need a hearing aid but not hearing good enough to hear clearly in a noisy situation, such as in a crowded restaurant.
