The other day I saw an infomercial for a product that amplifies sounds, and you can hear a conversation from across the street. Does the Loud N Clear sound Amplifier actually work? If I am listening to one person, will it pick up well, or will I get distracted
I've never personally used it, but I've heard it's a piece of crap.
I'd go to a website that sells them and read the reviews.

Sunfire Unleashes the Atmos - World's "Most Powerful" Little Subwoofer
Do you remember the Looney Tunes episode where Marvin the Martian shows up and everyone laughs at his little ray gun? That's probably how the new Atmos subwoofer from Sunfire felt in Indinana at CEDIA Expo 2012 last week. Sunfire's competitors: Paradigm, PSB, REL, and JL Audio, have been introducing smaller and smaller subwoofers at recent shows, but the 8" Atmos probably felt like a mouse in a room filled with stampeding elephants.
From what we've heard, nobody in Indy is laughing anymore. Ray gun has been put back in its holster but the damage has been done.
The Atmos incorporates dual custom designed 6.5" woofers in a sealed extruded aluminum enclosure that measures just over 8" tall. Utilizing a new proprietary asymmetrical cardioid surround, these drivers are capable of excursions of up to 1.8" that deliver extraordinarily refined yet dynamic bass. To achieve this new Sunfire standard for small-box, high-output performance, the extruded aluminum enclosure was engineered to withstand the increased backpressures that reach up to 24.4 PSI, or nearly two atmospheres of pressure, hence the name Atmos. Backpressure is required to maintain linearity over a long throw distance, allowing the small drivers to move substantial amounts of air.
Audiovox Steps Into Personal Sound Amplifier Market and Announce ...
by Efren Toscano
Audiovox announced that it will be entering the Personal Sound Amplifier (PSA) market with 2 models for consumers who want/need to hear better. They plan on providing a highly affordable solution for consumers with mild-to-moderate hearing loss.
As we get older hearing loss is very common and is just a natural part of life. Although, it is steadily increasing due to exposure to noisy environments, loud concerts, city traffic, power tools, and lawn mowers; and it is taking its toll on several different age groups (basically everyone you see walking around with their headphones on all day).
“About 33 million Americans experience impaired hearing. And 75% of these people, who could benefit from some form of hearing device, do not have one,” stated David Geise, President of Audiovox Accessories Corporation. “We believe that an enhanced Personal Sound Amplifier can provide a convenient and highly affordable solution for all of those potential first-time hearing device users. This is an excellent solution for people who want to amplify their hearing in certain situations like a crowded restaurant, church, watching TV or, at the movies,” said Geise.

Our cat Guapo (Handsome) in his pin-striped suit. He loved to play with the vibrating strings, feeling the buzz and hearing the odd sounds that would come out of the amplifier's speaker. I did encourage him to play and Guapo would sometimes entertain us...
They bought a set of Audio Analogue hand-made devices and two tall speakers with them. Sadly, you can hear one source over another and the radio gives some noise now.
Continued from the other day, some of the initial circuit has changed, and now includes a built-in sound trigger. Except that the sound triggering is giving me fits... that part of the circuit is analog, and the logic, of course, is digital. Apparently, the microcontroller and I have differing...
Ray Champagne and Matt Schideman.
Ray is not only the amplifier/gear guru who runs Rebel Sound but he's also a masterful guitarist and outlaw country performer.
Matt's approach on bass really works for this duo. He has a very strong and percussive style that not only fills in the low end but...
