Welcome to my Hear Gear Blog!

Welcome to my blog!  I will be posting information about hearing loss and the latest developments in technology to help you hear.  This will include information about hearing aids and assisted listening devices, links to interesting articles, and other related topics.  I hope you will find this helpful and would appreciate receiving your comments and any information you would like to share.

I am a member of the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) and our local San Diego Chapter (HLAA-SD).  I have a hearing loss and found great support in attending the HLAA-SD monthly meetings.  The meetings are both educational and social and this is where I began to learn about assisted listening devices.   As I learned more about the many different devices available to enhance hearing, I decided to start my own business, “Hear Gear”.  Through Hear Gear, I sell personal listening devices and large area listening systems.  I also present educational programs to organizations about “Hearing Loss Solutions”.  So, if you want to learn about “gear” to help you “hear”, this blog is for you!

  1. How does a Soundshuttle work and what do they cost?

    • You can read more about the Sound Shuttle here: http://www.puredirectsound.com/id20.html. I don’t sell it but you can buy from Pure Direct Sound for $220. I have tried the “Portable InfoLoop”: http://www.heargear.net/node/17
      which is a similar product. I sell it for $295. Both devices work by creating a small inductive loop field close to the device. Although they both have built in microphones, I have found that the InfoLoop works much better with the use of an external microphone (included) You have to be very close to it for it to work – about 2 feet away. Let me know if you have any more questions!
