The iHear Hearing Aid app is a $.99 app that provides sound amplification for those with hearing loss. Run the app and point the iPhone in the direction where the conversation is occurring and listen to how the app amplifies the sound through the headphones.

A few things to remember:

1.) After installing, remember to reboot your iPhone.
2.) You MUST use basic headphones to hear the amplified sound. Note the very nice headphones provided by Apple have a built-in microphone that over-rides the iPhone microphone, which will NOT work right with this app.
3.) You MUST use an iPhone with microphone.
4.) Because there is only ONE microphone, it will be mono (play only in one ear). We are researching adding bluetooth headset compatibility for a future release, but stereo bluetooth headsets are NOT supported at this time.
5.) WHEN the app is LOADED, you must THEN adjust the volume of the amplifier, by using the VOLUME buttons on the side of your iPhone. Note this volume control (with the app loaded) is DIFFERENT from the regular iPhone volume!

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and without a
    doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently
    about. Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my search for something concerning this.

  2. Very informative article. Looking forward to more posts in near future.

  3. I have enjoyed reading your article. Great Work!
