Great for anyone dealing with k-12 kids.
By Karina Abernathy
I have been teaching for ober a decade now and I don't know why I never thought to look for something like this a long time ago. I just got fed up straining my voice over classrooms of children who don't listen unless someone is shouting. This way I can keep my voice calm while being heard. It gets their attention. It is small enough to clip on your pocket or waistband without falling. The battery life for me is about 2 and half days worth of class so I think thas is pretty good especially since all you have to do is recharge it. It does get feed back when you walk by things like sinks, desk, etc. This works great for substitute teachers because it doesn't get old to the kids. Going into different classes they don't know what to make of you. Works great for field trips. I think it is a must have for educators who deal with lots of kids at one time. Some of the money we waste in schools would be better spent on staff being equipped with these. It would save adult vocal cords, we would probably get less frustrated because we will be heard immediately, and most kids will respond to the louder voice so you won't have to yell. Yes, kids do get yelled at in school because lots of times they don't respond otherwise.

Tour Director's dream!
By Carol K.
I am a tour director in Washington DC. Many sites in DC are crowded, making it difficult for my groups of 40-50 people to hear the explanation the sites. Add in allergy season, when your voice seems to not have the punch it usually does, and your voice needs a little amplification some times. This little device works like a dream! It is compact, lightweight, and easy to use. It is rechargeable and the microphone is comfortable to wear. I've not had any feedback problems and I wear the speaker around my neck. Love the mp3 player plug in option. Great value for the price. I am so glad I purchased it, it's a keeper!VoiceBooster Voice Amplifier 10watts Black MR1506 (Aker) by TK Products, Portable, for Teachers, Coaches, Tour Guides, Presentations, Costumes, Etc.

Does what it needs to do at value price
By R. Minervini
It's clearly not an Apple designed product, but heck, for the price, this thing does what it needs to do. We do walking tours of groups of 12-20 people and this thing does an amazing job getting my voice to the people in back even while standing on the street. It has a strap for wearing on waist or over shoulder, Either way I can swing the speaker from back to front whether I am walking in front of the group or facing them. Very compact, surprisingly loud when needed. Solid construction. Recharges quickly. Cannot vouch for how long it lasts on one charge-- at least 90 minutes for our tours. Only minor issue is that the headpiece wire that goes behind the head and over the ears is too large (and I have a big head). Overall very good product for the price.
