personal amplifiers

Hi all - Sorry to ask such a niche, applied question but I'm hoping
someone out there knows the answer. A friend of mine who has a
unilateral hearing loss is considering buying a Pocketalker for use in
certain specific situations. Radio Shack's personal amplifier costs
about 25% of what the Pocketalker costs. All I can find on the internet
about the Pocketalker comes either from the company that makes and sells
them, or from users who don't talk about one device versus the other. 

Does anyone have any experience with these devices, or know how they
stack up in terms of sound quality?
