Sounds are sent to your earbuds in real time. Hear what you’d like to hear. Record what you’d like to record!
Works in many situations, around the table at home, watching TV, in lecture halls, at parties, wherever you’d like to hear, or overhear, the people around you!
We have tuned soundAMP to provide you crystal clear sound at the maximum volume possible. And with its advanced technology, it even reduces volume over the limit.
Simple-to-use controls allow you to tune the sound with the equalizer, adjust background sound levels for each situation, and replay the last 30 seconds.
With soundAMP R, record it all -- capture lectures, presentations, interviews, or even important information relayed at a doctor’s appointment. Bookmark the recording to remember important points! Export recordings to your computer.
soundAMP R supports iOS4 multitasking, so you can listen with soundAMP while checking your email, reviewing your calendar, surfing the web, viewing your photos and performing other tasks. When you start recording and then leave the app, it will keep recording. The new graphics take advantage of iPhone 4 high resolution screen. It’s beautiful!'
This app seems like it might be worthwhile to a small group of hearing impaired users who do not have access to other options but it's use for higher education seems to be limited to that group. Also it costs $4.99.

This app could well be used by individuals, particularly in a class session who had difficulty hearing. However, its use in teaching, per se, is limited.

The potential for this application is enormous. Many report using it with far more success than normal hearing aids in noisy environments. BUT: You are currently restricted to wired ear phones/headsets, physically tying you to the phone*. The ideal would be an inconspicuous ear mounted bluetooth earphone with no microphone.
*After much research I found a single exception: from Creative Labs - their Bluetooth enabled WP-300 over the head/over the ear headphones. The hundreds of other wireless headsets include a microphone designed to capture the wearers voice. These headsets automatically disable the iphone mic or a mic plugged into the phone.
