We ordered this for my husband. He has very severe hearing loss in both ears. It is nice to be able to hear and converse with people again. This unit is not perfect but for the money it is doing very well. As someone else said an automatic noise limiter would be handy as any loud noise, like dropping something can hurt your ears and scare the heck out of you. (Posted on 4/6/2018)
Happy hearing Review by Indy
Overall Satisfaction
I have lost most of the hearing on both sides. One ear 3 years ago and one recently. Due to the nature of the hearing loss the medical process is taking a while. In the meantime the pocketalker has helped to be able to converse at home and work. It could use a better headset and earbuds, but works okay with the ones provided. (Posted on 3/15/2018)
Works well...if she'll only use it! Review by Carole
Overall Satisfaction
My 92 year old mom needs hearing aids but we've decided they're too involved for her now. I ordered this Pocketalker just before Mothers Day & she was able to hear the movie we watched the night before and we sat it in the middle of our dining table & she was able to hear & join in the conversation. It's a lifesaver. Now, I need to find out if I can order some smaller earbuds. She insists that they don't stay in her ears. Any suggestions? (Posted on 5/25/2017)
So great! Review by Barb
Overall Satisfaction
Was able to try this out at a looped venue and it was so much better than hearing aids alone. I go to lots of auditorium events, lectures, etc. and have a difficult time hearing with hearing aids alone. This will make the difference! Comes with a lifetime guarantee, according to Williams rep.

Effective. Allows much easier participation in conversations. Difficult to use on-off switch for an older person. (Posted on 12/12/2016)
Excellent, needs one improvement. Review by Joe
Overall Satisfaction
Both the build and the sound quality on this is just fantastic. It's far better than I imagined a non-prescription hearing amplifier could be.

Of course, it amplifies all sounds equally, even the ambient noise. While selectable preprogrammed sound response curves would be nice, I guess that such a level of sophistication might be too expensive for a device like this.

What it really needs however, is some kind of Automatic Gain Control circuit. My home health care aide dropped a pot in the kitchen while I had the volume set to a comfortable level for myself. The resulting clang was so horrific that my heart nearly popped out of my chest. It took me a few minutes to recover. This needs some kind of circuit to limit loud sounds.

Other than that, it's great. (Posted on 7/4/2016)
Very Satisified Review by Hamm
Overall Satisfaction
Very satisfied with the product. I tried the T-Coil and could not pick up any audio, do not know if it was the fault of the theater's system, or my device. I'll have to wait and see.

Loose connection Review by Stu
Overall Satisfaction
My new Pocketalker 2.0 has a loose connection for the ear bud. It's very annoying as the sound cuts out with the least movement when the device is lying on the table. Otherwise, it's superior to my Pocketalker Pro.

**We are sorry you are having trouble with the connection. Please contact us and we can troubleshoot what may be the issue. – Harris Communications** (Posted on 3/16/2016)

This is a great improvement over past models. It also contains a loop receiver so it can be used as a personal receiver looped venues. Huge plus. WS should do more to promote that feature. (Posted on 2/24/2016)
Great advancement Review by Stu
Overall Satisfaction
The 2.0 has better sound quality than the Pro I've used for years. The 2.0 is lighter and more attractive, i.e., not so "functional" looking. The socket for the earbuds seems at times insecure; time will tell if it's me or the 2.0 that's the issue. (Posted on 2/1/2016)
