About this app

The ultimate super hearing app.

Put on some Bluetooth headphones, tap the center button, and you can hear and amplify what your phone's microphone is picking up.

It's also possible to set up an automatic noise-trigger for audio recordings and have them sent to your email.

Whether you want to responsibly audio-monitor your environment, hear the TV and conversations better (non-medical hearing aid), or just listen to birdsong from indoors, Ear Scout amplifies and streams the audio from the mic to your Bluetooth headset (mic-to-headphone) in real time for remote super hearing.

HEADPHONES REQUIRED. To avoid awful audio feedback you need to use headphones.

SAFETY FEATURE. After starting the app the volume increases gently to the set level. This way you have time to adjust to high gain settings from the previous session.

REVIEWS: Please review the app if you try it.

Ear Scout amplifies sound coming from your phone's microphone straight to your earphones (direct mic-to-headphones audio). To fine-tune the incoming signal, use the audio equalizer.

DISCLAIMER. This app is for remote hearing via email / Bluetooth (e.g. listening to nature / property monitoring) and sound amplification (non-medical hearing aid), not to listen in on private conversations. Please use Ear Scout responsibly.

I really love using this app. There's only 3 reasons I didn't give it 5 stars. If you have to go to a different app for a second, and switch back: 1) you can't exactly stop and pick up where you left off. In just about any feature, it will make you reload the audio and start over. 2) In the equalizer, the pause function becomes basically useless since the audio line disappears and you can't change the start time either. 3) If the app isn't closed properly, the audio file gets corrupted.

OK for noise, NOT for voices. I played with the controls, adjusting everything possible. While I can hear something being sat on a table outside, I can't hear the person talking across the room any more clearly than I can without it. This is the third app I've downloaded with similar description and looks like I'll be moving to a forth. Figure out a way to cancel out background noise and you'd really have something.

Always clear adjustable sound, simple and direct, get exactly what you needed with this app. No anoying ads, if they have any I can't remember seeing them. The best part is if you hook up to your head phones you can leave the recording on and it will continue recording even once the screen times out. Totally unnoticed, all while you are listening from the other room. I've used for a few years now. Best one then and still the best one now. Thanks Ear Scout keep up the great work
