MSA 30X Sound Amplifier
What I received in the box were:
- 1 MSA 30X device
- 6 silicone ear buds
- 1 charging cradle
- 1 adapter
- 1 cleaning brush
Then my brother-in-law informed me that I didn't need any batteries for this sound amplifier. Instead all I need to do is to recharge the amplifier with a charging adapter. I was even more happy because batteries were a bit expensive if amplifier drains the batteries too quick that it didn't last long! I went on ahead to see which the ear buds were right size for my ear. I realized the ear buds were the same as the Walker's game hearing aid because all doesn't really fit into my ear as I wanted to. The small bud were perfect yet it doesn't really protect my ear from the plastic part on the hearing aid which it really hurts! Ouch! Of course, the large bud were too big and won't fit into my ear. The medium were a little tight but it fitted anyway. I waited about 15 minutes to let the amplifier to be charged and I was done being patient. Haha! So I went straight on ahead to put it into my right ear. Man... You guys. Seriously, it was soooo relieving to be able to hear again!! I can tell you that I really like this better than the Walker's game ear amplifier. The volume isn't too bad yet I can hear small, simple sounds like my nephew's toys playing, the water running in the sink, or even my own cat's meows. Nice, really nice!
What I also love about this sound amplifier are the basic components on it. Not too fancy. Just a simple buttons of volume and an on/off. The numbers, 1 to 4, is the lowest to highest volume and I love it because it's easy to find it with my finger. However, the only con about this product is the wire that connect the ear bud to the actual sound amplifier. I have really small ears and man, the wire is too long to fit along my ear. I have to use bobby pins and an elastic tie to hold my amplifier to my ear. What annoyance is that! Ugh... If only I had normal size ears, I would have been good but no, the years of wearing large hearing aids as a child have taken a toll on my ears. So yes. I am sure this would be a good amplifier to have if you are like me which is moderate to severe hearing.
- Easy to set up.
- Simple Controls
- Good power output
- Good sound quality
- The wire is too long to fit on my ears.
- Watching on TVs, laptops, or computers.
- Talking in small or large rooms, (restaurants, homes, etc.)
- Even can use in movie theaters!!
Finally, this amplifier is a month old at least and the bobby pins I used to hold this onto my ear have started to damage the wire. So I'm afraid to say I have to invest into a new hearing aid for myself. Not a sound amplifier but an actual hearing aid! Whoo! Sucks that it's very expensive to get ONE even with health insurance, the price doesn't budge! Although, I am happy to get a better equipment than previous sound amplifier to be able to hear. Well, there you go. That is my review on MSA 30X sound amplifier. Thank you so much for reading and I hope to see you next time. Until then, bye!!!
