TruTone EMOTE® speech aid--Contact us--assistance available!
Review by David S., Strawberry Plains Date Added: Sunday 15 October, 2017
The Griffin Emote is my new speech device of choice ! --- I’ve been a laryngectomee since 2014. I actually bought several different brands of electrolarynx devices in 2014, to experiment with. For my daily communicator device, I originally ended up choosing the Griffin Trutone, because of its excellent sound quality, build quality, and its ability to vary the pitch up and down while talking. Varying my voice pitch allows me to show expression and emotion, like with a real voice. It allows people to understand my feelings much better than when I just talk in a mono-tone voice. --- I have now changed over to Griffin’s new Emote. It does everything the Trutone does, but has many additional features. People keep telling me, “David, you sound just like you did before your laryngectomy”. Every person I talk to is amazed at the life-like voice sound and expression. The Emote allows me to have over two full octaves of “notes” / tones, and it’s new controls allow easier control of the volume and pitch. It has a built-in battery that lasts me 2-3 weeks or more on a single charge, and I talk a LOT. It has a USB port, so no problem finding a charging source at home, hotel, or car. I entertain kids (and adults) with the variable pitch. I play around with singing, which is doable because of the wide variable pitch range. IF you are unable to master the variable pitch control, you can simply talk in mono-tone with the Emote, and use it just like any other brand of electrolarynx, or you can adjust the Emote to only a 4-5 note range, making it easier to control. So, with the Emote, the possibilities are endless; can be adjusted to be used as a simple mono-tone device, OR with a little practice you can use the pitch variation, and then even progress to singing complete songs with it ! If you ever need a repair, Griffin has excellent customer service. – David Smith in Tennessee.
