For $39, the “Super ear” looks like a lot of fun, this might make the next tech conference a lot more interesting… worst case, it’ll be fun to take apart and see if I can make even more super – “What binoculars did for vision, this product does for listening. Produces an adjustable 50 decibel gain on sounds picked up from its multi-element high sensitivity microphone. With only a single AAA battery, this lightweight device produces nice results. Use to amplify bird sounds (can be clipped to binoculars), frogs at night, or use during a lecture to get all the details. Comes with high quality stereo headphones, AAA battery, instructions and suggestions for use. Begin hearing things you have never heard before. “ [via] – Link.
