That caught my attention too. If it goes off with other people in the room they had better have hearing protection on. OSHA's thresh hold is in the low 80s.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

For some people with sensitive hearing, that alarm is going to at the least cause temporary loss. But the real problem is that wives often have better hearing than husbands, and the first time that alarm went off you'd either have to toss it out, or a divorce might be on the way. My wife can barely tolerate TV levels that I can barely hear. Very bright lights flashing sounds like a better idea.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

If so does it work as described?
No, she doesn't think she is quite ready for it yet. Still an awesome option to have in case she decides she needs it

120 is Max, you don't have to crank it up all the way

[quote=kp91;2067279]My oldest wears hearing aids, and we're always looking for assistive devices to help her out. This latest one my wife found is kind of intriguing, and I think it could be handy in a loud work environment as well

It's an improvement over the basic phone flasher because it can flash different colors or sounds depending on the phone or doorbell that triggers it, and they are wireless with a 600 foot range. (Now your family won't have to scream at you that it is dinner time while you have your hearing protection on....)

I haven't seen it in person yet, but I think it may be on my daughter's Christmas list this year

That sounds good

I just bought hearing aides last year, because of all the nagging I have been getting from everyone. this is the second set ,the first was around early 1990's. These were rated 2nd by CR and they don't do any better, only amplify for my ears the sounds I can already hear. I could have bought some nice tools for what they cost.
It is quiet in my world,
Herb
