Personal Amplifiers
Assistive listening devices (ALDs) for use by those with or without a hearing aid.
Equally suited for TV and audio listening or to help visitors with hearing problems.
The Crescendo 50 is a neat design with good sound quality and a variable tone control. The
supplied tie clip microphone provides the best sound pickup, e.g. a conversation in the car.
The Crescendo 50 has a 3 position switch in the battery compartment to change between
microphone (either internal or external), audio input from TV SCART etc. and loop pickup.
The Crescendo 50 would be our recommended ALD choice for TV listening & home use. It has
easy-grip volume and tone controls, good for those with limited dexterity and vision.
The Comfort Duett is an extremely easy to use premium personal listener with a very good level
of amplification and an effective tone control.
In the opinion of our evaluation panel, the shape and design of this amplifier makes it great for
those who want a device which is practical, effective and easy to handle. The audio performance is
very good.
The Communicator is a basic, lightweight stetoclip listener with high quality sound. It is now available in a variety of colours.
The Communicator is ideal for use where health professionals need to communicate with patients and would be our
recommended choice for use in hospitals and care homes. With no connecting wires it is easy and hygienic to use.

Connevans note ‘Single sided’ personal amplifiers used with a hearing aid usually provide added benefit above a hearing
aid alone. However a ‘single sided’ product will never be as effective as a personal radio aid where the sound pickup
microphone is wirelessly worn by the person talking ‒ like the microphones worn by TV presenters.

Crescendo 50 Systems
The Sarabec Crescendo 50 systems are versatile personal listening products
with a range of accessories to facilitate use by those with or without a
hearing aid. Equally suited for TV and audio listening or to help visitors
with hearing problems.
The design has easy-grip volume and tone controls, good for those with
limited dexterity and vision.
A ‘T’ facility is required for use with hearing aids. Non hearing aid users can
choose between a stethoscope headset or headphones.
The Crescendo 50 systems all allow the volume to be varied without affecting others in the
room. The Crescendo 50 has variable tone control to suit your needs and an inductive pickup
coil input allows the unit to be used as a headphone loop listener ‒ so a non hearing aid wearer
can also use their Crescendo system to listen to a loop system in a church or theatre etc.

If the Communicator is going to be used by more than
one person, it is essential to keep a stock of cleaning
wipes so that there are no hygiene issues. Our individually
wrapped wipes (3B6152 on page 125) would be ideal
and won’t dry out before they are needed.
