Okay, most people probably don't need a SuperEar, but a lot of them probably want one. The little device amplifies sounds by 50 decibels, allowing you to—and I'll quote the product page—"amplify bird sounds (can be clipped to binoculars), frogs at night, or use during a lecture to get all the details." Yes, I am sure that is exactly what it will be used for.
Should you wish to do some...birdwatching, the $39.99 SuperEar comes with a AAA battery and a pair of stereo headphones and remember—it's far less conspicuous than your Dad's old parabolic mic. Time to bring "lectures" into the 21st century.
