NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J., March 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Songbird Hearing Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-quality, low-cost hearing devices, today announced the launch of its Songbird® Clear™ sound enhancement device to consumers online and through leading retailers nationwide.

DiCostanzo added, "We all have times in our lives when we would like to hear more clearly. With Songbird Clear, consumers can better enjoy the sounds around them – whether in movie theaters, lecture halls, religious services, social events, business meetings or when watching TV at low volumes."
Songbird Clear's compact behind-the-ear design makes it virtually invisible when worn, and an adjustable cord and soft tip ensure a comfortable and personal fit. The product's built-in sound processor adjusts to make soft sounds louder and clearer while keeping loud sounds from getting too loud and distorted.
