Don’t Let a Hearing Impairment Stop You From Getting Help


This woman is wearing a Pocketalker and she can hear better!

Don’t let hearing impairment stop you from seeking help!

For counselling or consulting with those who are hearing impaired, I use a “Pocketalker” by Williams Sound with hygienic covers for the earphones (or you can use your own earbuds or earphones). This device can be used with existing hearing aids.

Improve your hearing – improve your life with the new Pocketalker Ultra from Williams Sound! The Pocketalker Ultra amplifies sounds closest to the listener while reducing background noise. The Pocketalker Ultra features a lightweight, ergonomic design for portability and ease of use. Finger tip adjustable volume control allows you to quickly adjust to your listening environment – whether your hearing loss is low frequency or high frequency sounds. The listening accessories jack accommodates for a variety of earphone and headphone options. Use the Pocketalker Ultra with an optional neckloop (NKL 001) to amplify a telecoil-equipped hearing aid.

To purchase a Pocketalker, check out the Williams Sound website.

If you or someone you know has special needs, please let me know and I will accommodate as best as I can.

      Hi Kelly. I am sorry but I don’t know where you could buy those headphones. You may want to try contacting the company that makes the Pocketalker. They may be able to help you. You can Google it. – Angela
