Strap-on Bat-ears.

Improve your hearing by strapping-on large ears.

A set of strap-on ears that fit over your existing ears and increase their surface area ten-fold. They will need to be custom moulded for each individual to ensure that no sliding and no excess noises will be made by the ear moving about.

Endure the ridicule to have super-sharp hearing. Good for such past-times as hunting and cricket-umpiring. May also be used by the old and infirm as a replacement for the ear-trumpet.

       [krelnik] That is when Prince Charles isn't "doing" tampon commercials.

       I was hoping this would be some sort of audible radar...

       There was an audiophile accessory that clipped on to give you bigger ears to hear better, can't find a link but baked I think.

       Earglasses. Heh. "You may feel a bit funny ... " is a gross understatement.

       "You may look like an idiot" is more like it.

       Aside from the 'custom' fit, you have cited your own baking precedent.
