  • Headphone Sales Support Deaf Charity NDCS

Amplicomms, the specialist manufacturer of Assistive Technology products, announced today their support for the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS), the leading charity dedicated to supporting deaf children and their families. 

For the next three months amplicomms have pledged to donate £3 from the sale of every HS100 LR Headphones purchased during this promotional period.

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 says, “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“

Also commenting on the partnership, Matthew Coleman, NDCS Corporate Partnerships Executive said, “We are very grateful to Amplicomms for choosing to support NDCS in improving the lives of deaf children and young people across the UK.

“Every penny raised through sales of the HS100 LR Headphones  will help us deliver a range of services for families, including weekends for families whose child has just been diagnosed as deaf. These weekends are a lifeline for many parents, providing them with emotional support and much-needed information about their child’s deafness.”

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 loan out amplicomms equipment, allowing families to experience a products benefits before making the commitment to buy.

Donations will begin in September.
