A hearing aid is a personlised device. It is tailored made for your degree of hearing loss, shape of your ear and in many cases, your listening preferences. And today, hearing aids are available in a wide range of features, styles, colours, and sizes.
- Microphone: receives the sound in the environment, and coverts the sound to the electronic signals.
- Amplifier: amplifies sound signals. In a digital hearing aid, it resembles the processor of a computer, so different sound signals can be transmitted in its best quality possible.
- Receiver / Speaker: reconverts the amplified / processed signals to audible sounds.
- Battery: provides power to the hearing aid
Why 2 Hearing Aids are Better Than 1
Being able to hear with both ears is just as important as being able to see with both eyes. If you have difficulty hearing with both ears, it is quite certain that you will be benefited from binaural fitting — wearing a hearing aid in each ear.
The major benefits of binaural fitting are:
- Better localisation of sounds
- Easier understand of speech in noisy surroundings
- Lower risk of auditory deprivation
- Enhanced sound quality
