Remember our last blog about what a PSAP is? Now PSAPs are available through Hearing Revolution. As I mentioned before, PSAPs can be an inexpensive alternative to a hearing aid if your hearing loss is mild and you’re just having difficulty in certain situations, like one on one conversation or hearing the television. PSAPs are basic amplifiers that have a limiter or governor on them to ensure they do not reach a dangerous loudness level to damage your hearing.
At this time, Hearing Revolution is proud to introduce two Personal Sound Amplification Products: the Comet (available for $295 per instrument) and the Apollo (available for $250 per instrument). Check back soon for a “Compare and Contrast” Blog that explains the differences between the two devices.
Not sure if a PSAP is right for you or if a hearing aid is a better option?
