Charity to benefit from headphone sales


Amplicomms, the specialist manufacturer of devices for deaf, hearing or visually impaired people, is to raise funds for the UK’s National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) through the sales of its popular HS100 LR headphones

The company has pledged to donate £3 from the sale of every HS100 LR headphones purchased during the promotional period September–November 2015.

Designed for people with hearing loss the HS100 LR will help those who normally struggle to hear the television or sounds from other sources. The HS100 has an output up to 106dB with separate volume controls for the right and left sides. Music and sound can be enjoyed with individual precision and perfect stereo balance by people with monaural or uneven binaural hearing loss.

Ran Meyrav, amplicomms European Sales Director, said: ‘We are proud to be a supporter of the NDCS charity. We believe the support they offer to families of deaf children has a profoundly positive impact. We hope this will be a success at raising funds for a much needed service.’

There are over 45,000 deaf children living in the UK, mostly born to hearing parents with little or no experience of how to communicate with a deaf person. NDCS helps deaf children thrive by providing impartial practical and emotional support to them and their families, and by challenging governments and society to meet their needs.

The charity currently loans out amplicomms equipment, allowing families to experience a product’s benefits before making the commitment to buy.

The HS100 LR headset can be purchased through Action on Hearing Loss, price £29.99 (inc. VAT).
