Many people face hearing loss. Due to unsightly hearing aids, or the stigma of hearing loss being only a senior problem that advances with age, those with impaired hearing sometimes choose to go without the ability to hear a full range of sound. This puts a hamper on the quality of life experienced by those with this diminished capacity of a vital sense.
The MSA 30X is a product known to many a household thanks to the time it has received on television. It has achieved a heightened popularity due to the quality of sound it produces. But is the advertising true? The goal of the MSA 30X is to provide the wearer a discreet alternative to the common bulky hearing aids on the market. I needed a bit more clarification to see if it was hype, or there really is a tiny amplifier that can produce the amplification 30 fold while no bigger than a jellybean. If any others out there have doubted the claims of the late night television broadcasts, I put together all the valid information I could find on the MSA 30X after some further investigation into the wondrous little device.
First, how do sound amplifiers work?
Sound amplifiers work by absorbing an incoming audio signal and boosting the power of it before turning it into a physical sound wave to be played through a speaker. The microphone that picks up the incoming audio and the speaker that plays the resulting boosted signal are found within the same tiny device. This technology allows for a weak audio signal to be boosted in power while still conveying the same audio.
The job of an amplifier is to get a larger output from a small electric current. There are many ways this can be achieved depending on the signal. A fluctuating signal, such as with a television or the sound of a voice coming down the telephone line is the same as a microphone from a hearing aid. The amplifier used for this is a transistor based. This type of amp has 3 main components starting with a base of 3 wire connections. When a small current is fed to the emitter from a base, you get a much larger output flowing to the collector from the emitter.
While this may sound as if energy, or voltage, would be emitted also- physics come into play and no energy is created. That’s why an energy hook-up or supply is needed by having external batteries for a hearing aid, or ear amplifier such as the MSA 30X.
While distortion and feedback seem to plague most ear amplifiers, the innovative technology of the MSA 30X seems to allow a comfortable, pure sound with no “clipping” or distorted frequencies such as music ear buds can get with heavy bass.
The benefits of a sound amplifier are numerous, with the most obvious being an increase in the ability of the wearer to hear all sounds in their surroundings. Hearing aids harness this technology, as they are effectively a tiny sound amplifier resting within the ear to assist the wearer. The MSA 30X provides this in a package discreet enough to remain unseen while inside the ear.
Why choose the MSA 30X?
Due to market demand, ear amplifiers are becoming less noticeable and created smaller, but some quality may be traded to size down. This hearing aid provides one of the best sound amplification methods on the market housed in a sleek device that can barely be seen when it is in the ear.
The subtle design of the MSA 30X, consisting of clear tubing formed in a customized shape to contour to the ear, leads to a more confident wearer since the worry of whether others can “see” their hearing aid is gone. The MSA 30X is also very easy to wear. In addition to fitting inside the ear easily, the device weighs only 0.3 ounces- meaning the wearer will be more comfortable and the device is undetectable in either ear.
What can the MSA 30X do for you?
The MSA 30X is a sound amplification device, as the name suggests. The 30x in this item name refers to the ability to amplify the input sounds by up to 30 times via the use of a remote control. This allows for direct adjustable control of the sound levels being heard, allowing for the wearer to lower or increase the amount of sound they wish to receive. This is ideal for wearers who find themselves in quickly changing locations with differing levels of surrounding noise, such as going from a conversation in a car to a busy restaurant with background noise.
What are the reviews saying about the MSA 30X?
The most common accolade from actual users is twofold. The sound is very clear and people are very pleased that it does seem to elevate sounds up to the advertising campaign of sounds 30 times clearer. A few reviews seemed to have trouble with individual ear pieces, but said the company replaced those and it was more damage during shipping, user circumstances causing individual malfunctions(such as it got wet by washing or rain), or the batteries were improperly inserted (or had dead cells) or uncharged.
As Seen On TV Product Reviews, USAMSA 30x works good for my needs and so much cheaper than an actual hearing aid, especially with the rechargeable batteries. I got 4 MSA 30x amplifiers – 2 sets for me and the wife so we can have one to use while the other recharges.

I bought this for my grandfather who is practically deaf and yells all the time because he cannot hear himself and ever since I got him the MSA 30x he has been much easier to talk to and be around. The TV is no longer at the highest volume and he stopped yelling at me.
Seems like the MSA 30x has been helpful for him.
People are impressed at the clarity and have gone as far to say how nice it was to hear “like a normal” person. Static was only and issue with about .5%, but that could be location, as most seemed to be in a subway or plane with a lot of white noise and signals in the background.

Ever since I got my wife a MSA 30x she can’t stop using the phone. I think it’s the first time in years that she could hear people on the phone perfectly well and not speak gibberish. I’m happy that I was able to somehow return her hearing back. Actually she’s quite lucky because she can on and off her sense of hearing whereas every time she nags me I have to listen to her nag away. Kidding aside, we are both lucky that we discovered MSA 30x. Now it doesn’t even feel like she’s lost her hearing.

I never really realized that I’d feel weird using a sound amplifier as they call it. I mean I’ve always thought that my auditory sense is the strongest one since I’m into music. But now that it has degraded, I’ve had to settle to hearing aids and help. I’ve tried a lot of gadgets but it just made me feel so awkward and it hurt my ear. But now with MSA 30x, I can perfectly hear everything. Not to mention that it has a really great volume adjuster that if it’s too loud for me I can just make it softer. In the rise of technology, I’m lucky I get to use this.
Reviewers of the MSA 30X seem pleased with the size and comfort level of the contoured shape, but a few comments wished for different skin tones in color.

What caught my attention in MSA 30x infomercial is the weight. I’m tired of having to put on a heavy hearing aid so when I found out that MSA 30x is just 0.3 ounces I was overjoyed and I just had to get it! So when I got it I didn’t know that it had another one come free. So I was really surprised. Since then I’ve referred MSA 30x to all my other friends needing hearing aids. It’s just really amazing!

This product is extremely amazing! I got MSA 30x a few days back just to try it but eventually I ended up not returning it after 30 days. I love how it feels so natural in the ears and that it came with tools for cleaning too. What I really love about it is that it doesn’t hurt my ears. Even if I had to pay for the shipping fee, I still prefer this over any other product because it doesn’t hurt my ears. It’s a good job for the makers of MSA 30x!
There are a few copies on the market, as with any successful product, according to reports. It is highly recommended you go to the official site of the MSA 30X to guarantee you are getting an authorized and FDA certified product from the company. The company’s warranty and money-back guarantee will apply and many times you get an additional mystery gift.

I started needing hearing aid when I got into a car accident about 7 years ago. From then I was only loyal to one brand, but since my wife got me MSA 30x, it’s as if I didn’t lose my hearing at all. I can hear everything clearly and I don’t have to feel awkward with the aid. I really love it because it even comes in two. It’s a price of one for 2 products. Plus it helps you save because you don’t have to buy batteries all the time, you can just charge it.

MSA 30x is the best thing that’s ever happened to my dad. He always complains of weak hearing. So when I saw the MSA 30x online, I knew I had to get one. At first my mom wasn’t really up for it because she doesn’t trust online shopping but eventually she allowed me to get one. But I was really happy with the result because ever since my dad used it, he could hear perfectly. Plus not to mention that it costs way lower than the other hearing aid products and it had a lot of freebies too!
Verdict on the MSA 30X
This product is recommended for those who would like an affordable personal auditory product that has rechargeable batteries, so it is an inexpensive one-time purchase to improve hearing capacity.
