"Etymotic products (Musicians Plugs, ER•4, BEAN Quiet Sound Amplifier) and the Adopt-A-Band program have proven to be an upgrade to my overall music teaching and performing experience. I can hear better and teach more accurately. Hearing protection and conservation is now a very important part of my everyday musical life."

"I had been using the wildly expensive, 'top-of-the-line' hearing aids recommended by an audiologist. I needed them to understand speech more easily in many situations, but the sound I had to listen to accomplish this was simply terrible. There seemed to be no other option. When I tried the BEAN for the first time, I was overwhelmed by the amount of sound I heard, but discovered quickly that it was worth getting used to. There is none of the distortion I'd been enduring with other aids (months later, I still love hearing the crisp "clink" of my house keys!) and I use them when directing my choral ensembles with much greater confidence of what I am hearing. And though I don't need them when I play the piano, I *can* use them in that situation and I would never choose to do that with traditional hearing aids. The sound difference is dramatic, with no loss of speech comprehension."
