Hear ye, hear ye – announcing the EchoRA

If you’ve ever been someone who needed to use their voice all day for a presentation, classroom or workshop then you’ll know it’s important to be heard by the audience.

The EchoRA Speech Amplifier and Teaching Aid is a small, portable amplifier which is great for providing loudness and clarity for those with quiet voices or someone who just wants to make sure they save their voice!

It’s also a great option for students with hearing impairment as the teacher can wear the transmitter and lapel and the speakers can sit on the student’s desk. Or it could help amplify conversations at home for those couples where the spouse is always complaining about selective deafness. The EchoVoice EV5 Speech Amplifier is also another option for people who need to amplify their voice eg. Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis.

 

When we first saw the EchoRA and had a play, we had great fun. My colleague had the microphone headset and walked out the front door and I could still hear her in the office. The range was fantastic and it had great clarity and volume.

Both of these amplifiers are available in our equipment trial scheme if you need to try it out. Give us a call if you require more information or want to give it a go.
