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.
