Product Description

One of the first signs of hearing loss is experiencing problems following conversations. Because of the complex rhythms and frequencies of speech and the interference of background noise, chatting to friends and family can often result in a lot of repetition as you strain to hear.

If you're looking for an assistive listening device to help out in these situations, the Sonido Conversation Amplifier (silver) offers exceptional sound quality and enhanced speech for anyone struggling to follow the flow of conversation.

The silver Sonido Conversation Amplifier is a portable amplification device that helps you hear things like conversations, the television and radio more clearly, whether you have a hearing aid or not. We helped influence the design of this product so we know it's great for people with hearing loss. 

In order to complete the unit, a neckloop, headphones, stethoset or ear hooks needs to be added.

We know that the Sonido Conversation Amplifier is a fantastic addition to the life of someone suffering from hearing loss - becausse we helped design it.

The Sonido Conversation Amplifier is an outstanding personal listener that gives you excellent value for money. Using the same technology as a digital hearing aid, it gives exceptional digital sound quality, but at the fraction of the price of other digital listeners.

The tone control function allows you to adjust the bass and treble of the sound. This is useful because you can tailor it to suit your particular hearing loss.

Do you have a hearing aid or not?

If you wear a hearing aid then you will need to purchase a neckloop or earhook from the accessories listed below.  These plug into the Sonido and transfer the sound to your hearing aid - a bit like headphones. Just make sure your hearing aid has a T-setting.

If you don't have a hearing aid you need to plug in a pair of headphones or stethosets to hear the amplified sound. These can be purchased from the selection of accessories below.

Listening to the TV

The Sonido Conversation Amplifier comes with an extra microphone on a 5m long lead. This can be placed next to the TV to help you hear more clearly. The sound is sent straight to your ears and cuts out background noise. However, if you press the 'mic' button you will hear the TV and any other sounds in the room, while the button is pressed. When you release the 'mic' button, you will return to the plug-in sound. This is useful if you want to speak to someone while watching TV, or if you don't want to miss the phone or doorbell ringing. For the very best TV sound you can even buy a TV kit (see accessories below) which plugs directly into the TV.

Some features of the Sonido Conversation Amplifier:

  • Excellent for people who have trouble holding small things - it has an easy grip rubberised coating and a large, raised soft-touch buttons.
  • 5m long external microphone (included) allows you to amplify sounds direct from other sources, such as TV, radio or MP3 player.
  • Volume and tone control - useful for tailoring the bass and treble to your hearing loss
  • 150 hours' battery life - almost double that of most other listeners
  • Hinged battery cover for easy access
  • Battery status light
  • Clear LEDs show volume and tone
  • To protect your hearing, Sonido automatically switches to a lower volume setting when turned on
  • You can set the volume at different levels for each ear via a button in the battery compartment
  • T setting that even allows people who don't wear hearing aids to benefit from induction loops or test they are working

I wear hearing aids and usually only view TV programmes which carry subtitles. However, there is often a programme which I would like to watch that does not carry subtitles - would this product solve this problem. Also, I do not go to see plays at the t

Hopefully the Sonido will work fine but you may need to purchase a Tv kit as well. The order code for the kit is L333B.

Thank you for your feedback regarding this unit.

Can you tell me if this product has a 3.5mm external microphone jack socket? I would like to use this in the car in conjunction with a throat microphone.

The unit is fitted with a 2.5mm jack socket for an external microphone. The 3.5mm jack socket is for a set of headphones or neckloop.

My mother is totally deaf in one ear and hard of hearing in the other. I am thinking of purchasing this product ro help her hear the TV but she cannot have any trailing wires. Would this product be suitable and what else would I need to purchase please

The Sonido will require a TV Kit (order code L333B) which consists of a phono lead, SCART adaptor and jack adaptor but it does mean having a trailing lead from the Sonido to the audio output sockets of the TV set. The length of this lead is 5m.

I can now hear 121 conversations but still have problems in meetings. I find the belt clip a nuisance. If I bend down it falls off.

Easy to use and works - especially good for watching TV. Others benefit from me not needing volume so high and for use in small meetings. It would be even better if smaller.

 Batteries flat on delivery

Posted by Gabrielle Drysdall

Bought to use in Canada as about to visit some family. Seems useful on upstairs TV (Ihave room loop downstairs). Not so useful just on the table in front of people but an improvement. The batteries were flat when the product turned up.

 Belt clip

Posted by Elaine Webster

The belt clip we've found impossible to put on the device even after following the instructions. The T loop settings need to be explained a bit more - very confusing! It works well with my loop set up especially as my implants internal coil hisses. I use Sonido as my alternative T coil.

 Cable length

Posted by Roy Fox

Good sound. I hope future development may reduce or replace the inconvenience of the length of cable and the size of headphones / stethoset.

 Conversation at home

Posted by Arthur Harvey

I have recently bought one of these for my wife who is somewhat more deaf than I am.She had been lent several by the local County Council and found this the best.I want you to know how excellent it is. Conversation in the home is so much easier. In church where there is lots of noise it's a help, and, listening to a speaker it's invaluable (providing they speak clearly!!).It's expensive compared to others but worth every penny. We'd recommend it to anyone.

 Design

Posted by Alfred Smith

I find the product helpful,but the volume is deficient in my case. The neck loop is very specific in its fitting position enclosed. I have noticed if the position is closer to the hearing aids there is a great improvement. Is there any reason for the loop being placed in the diagram position shown.

 Excellent first impressions

Posted by G F Cutter

First impressions are excellent for the price. All controls straightforward. Only trouble I had was fitting the belt clip. Instructions straightforward & easy to understand. Sound quality very good.

 Give it a try, it doe smake a difference

Posted by John Hilbourne

I am severely visually impaired with the usual loss of the higher registers associated with age. I use two NHS Simenes M hearing aids which are great but still have difficulty in hearing in siutations in which there is background noise, kettles,taps running. pubs, cars etc. For obvious reasons I can not lip read. The Senedo is not a perfect solution but it certainly makes things easieron a singificant number of occasions . The ability to adjust both the volume and the tone of the incoming signal is particularly useful in adjusting to particular situations. I have not used the extension microphone, and would feel a bit awkward about pinning iit on someone. I can see that the radio versions which give you a transmitter unit you can hang round the neck of the persons you are listenting to a put on the table without having to bother about wires would have advanatages of the sonedo's wired extention mike. However you would have to ask yourself seriously how oftent and or when you would use one to make the price difference worth thinking about. Its certainly worth a try for anyone who has a simlar hearing problem to mine. I already had a hearing loop so did not puchase the one recommended (you have to buy it separately). This was a mistake. Thje reccomended neck loop is much better than the one I had. The Sonedo is perhaps a little bulky if you are going to wear it as I do round your neck. It could also do with a directional microph0one as well as an omni directional microphone. I am now asking myself what the top end conversaton aids have to offer that the Sonedo does not. It would have to be a great deal to justify the price difference. I shall try them in due course, even if I decide to buy one the Sonedo is a good investment. It conviced me for a moderate price that things could be improved, and I would keep it as a back up. incidentally it has a linein feed so that you could conect up to your radio, stereo etc if you neede to. My advice would be that if you were considering an up market model try the Sonedo first. It may be all you need. You can have it 28 days approval. II'm keeping mine!

 Quick delivery

Posted by Sylvia Offler

Excellent service speedy delivery, good packaging. Product is good but the instructions should have been clear, especially how to open the battery compartment and hearing aids must always be in the T setting with a neckloop.
