Hearing Aid Guide
What makes a hearing aid?
Here’s a basic breakdown of how a hearing aid works:
- The microphone collects sound and transforms it into an electrical signal.
- The receiver collects the electrical signals from the amplifier and transforms them back into sound.
- The amplifier between the microphone and the receiver raises the signal of the sound before sending to the receiver.
- The recipient then sends the sound to your ears.
Digital hearing aids
The emergence of digital signal processing has totally reinvented hearing aids, allowing researchers and producers to considerably improve the experience of wearing hearing aids.
These contemporary hearing aids form the majority of the instruments available today and have several advantages, including:
- Improved voice comprehension in busy environments
- Increased feedback-free gain
- Better speech comprehension
- The ability to adjust instrument settings to suit particular hearing needs
