What is a hearing aid?

They are small, high-tech devices that help you hear if you suffer from hearing loss. They intelligently amplify your surrounding sounds (such as conversations, TV shows, or the radio) to help you communicate and participate in everyday situations.

How does a hearing aid work?
Sound is carried across three different parts:

  1. Microphone - receives sound waves and converts them into electrical signals
  2. Amplifier - increases the strength of the audio signals and sends them on to the ear
  3. Receiver / speaker - converts the amplified electrical audio signals into sound and sends them further into the ear canal
