If you’re as old as me, (I’m not old as dirt, but I did participate in the beta test), you probably don’t hear as well as you once did. This can be frustrating. If you’re also in the same financial situation as me, you can’t afford to spend a couple of thousand dollars for a hearing aid. That’s why the AMPSound Indiegogo campaign caught my eye. (Ear?)
AMPSound Bluetooth Hearing Amplifiers are unique in the way that they combine the benefits of not one, but three different products into a pair of beautifully designed stereo headphones. Use AMPSound as personal hearing amplifiers, Bluetooth stereo headphones or a Bluetooth earpiece for phone calls. With the ability to enhance sounds, you’ll be able to hear the world around you better than you ever have before. Designed as regular in-ear earbuds, AMPSound headphones are easy to use, easy to wear and require no adjustments to give you the most comfortable fit.
AMPSound offers 16 levels of personalized sound. Plus it includes three different sized earbuds for a custom fit. AMPSound’s compact “Portable Power Pack” allows for on-the-go charging and uses a built-in 3000 mAh capacity, which provides at least 21 cycles of charging. It also offers a USB port for charging of your other electronic devices.

The AMPSound Indiegogo campaign offers various levels of pledges, from $1 up to $2,500, but the one most folks will be interested in is the $99 early bird pledge level, which snags one pair of AMPSound headphones, along with a power pack and three different earbud sizes. (RETAIL – $199). After the early bird allotment is gone, it’ll run $129 for the same package.
