The BEAN Quiet Sound Hearing Amplifier by Etymotic Research provides that one click of clarity.

As a personal hearing amplification device–also known as a Quiet Sound Amplifier–The BEAN features a built-in sensor that automatically adjusts to the surrounding noise level. It amplifies soft sounds, while keeping the volume steady on louder noises or even reducing it for extremely loud sounds such as fireworks or the strike of a drum. Moreover, it boosts soft high-pitched sounds heard in speech, which helps provide clarity for conversations, particularly in less-than-ideal listening environments. Etymotic Research offers two models–The BEAN and the T-coil BEAN.

The BEAN amplifies sounds and enhances your hearing experience so your conversations become more effective in the car, in social situations, and at a distance.

Superior audio quality: The BEAN has been meticulously engineered to produce the highest fidelity possible. The frequency response of the BEAN has been shaped specifically to improve speech intelligibility. When playing or listening to music, The BEAN can process peak inputs up to 115 dB without distortion. It also has a 16 kHz bandwidth, at least double the bandwidth of other personal hearing amplifiers on the market. 

Clear, natural communication: The BEAN's unique circuitry enhances hearing only soft sounds amplified, and is acoustically transparent for louder sounds. It passes loud sounds through as if there were nothing in your ear. The BEAN employs adaptive compression algorithms and continuously-variable recovery times that allows the BEAN to constantly adjust to changing sounds in the environment. The transitions are so smooth, many people forget they are wearing them. 

Easy to use: The BEAN has just one dual-mode switch for the user to adjust. Both versions of the BEAN will run up to 12 days on a single battery, and there is an audible indicator to let you know when the battery is running down. Everything needed to get started comes in the box, including multiple eartips for a comfortable fit, batteries, and a leather carrying case.
