Hearing Aids

Finding out that you have hearing loss and need to wear a hearing aid can be a very overwhelming experience. However, once you understand how hearing aids work and how to acclimatize quickly to wearing one, you will hardly know it is there.

There are many hi-tech hearing aids available with different styles, features, and cosmetic appearances which can greatly improve your daily life without upsetting your individual lifestyle.

All hearing aids have certain characteristics in common. They are built to selectively increase the volume of the sounds you want to hear. They can make soft sounds audible, and at the same time making moderate or loud sounds comfortable, thus providing relief in both noisy and quiet situations.

No hearing aid can solve every hearing problem or restore normal hearing, but they are designed to provide amplification so that you can hear and understand better.

A hearing aid is basically a miniature amplification device with the following components:

  • battery
  • amplifier
  • microphone
  • mini loudspeaker known as a receiver
  • custom ear-mold or special shell for instruments
