Just for a dissenting voice ... I heard the same demo and was NOT 
impressed. It has the same problem the other DSP noise-reduction filters 
have. At first impression it definitely sounds like the speech is untouched 
while the noise is suppressed, but after trying to copy the speech for a 
while the resulting distortion becomes a problem. The speech is harder to 
understand with the distortion than it was with the noise. The fatigue 
factor is higher, too.

So, I suggest that you listen to one yourself before purchasing. You may 
find it a miracle, or you may find it worthless. Apparently it works better 
for some people than for others.
