Crescendo 60/1 Personal Amplifier


For those who don't wear a hearing aid but live with some form of hearing loss, you can stay connected with the Crescendo 60/1; a battery powered listening system from Sarabec. Designed to replace the ever-popular Crescendo 50, this latest device is packed full of technology to ensure you maximise your listening experience. Whether you want to follow your favourite program on TV, listen to the radio or hold a conversation with a friend, the Crescendo 60/1 makes it possible. It's lightweight and pocket sized, so easy to carry around. With extra loud amplification and tone control, you can adjust the settings according to your hearing needs. The built-in conductive coil enables you to connect to a loop system similar to a telecoil setting on a hearing aid. In public places such as theatres and conference facilities that operate a loop system, the Crescendo 60/1 generates excellent sound quality regardless of where you are in the room. This is a versatile product, with a number of additional accessories that have been designed to work alongside it such as a neckloop or a pair of headphones.
