What you need to know about hearing aids:
What are hearing aids?
In its simplest form, hearing aids are like a miniature PA system with four basic components: microphone, amplifier, a speaker (receiver), and power supply (batteries).
What types of hearing aids are available?
Today’s devices come in a wide variety of sizes and styles from those that sit behind the ear to invisible styles that sit completely in the ear canal — and feature different technology levels to match your specific needs and budget.
What is hearing technology available?
Like many other high-tech devices (TVs, phones, computers), hearing aids have experienced a major technological Revolution in the past decade and especially in the last few years. The best of today’s hearing technology are designed to virtually eliminate feedback, make listening in noisy environments easier and more comfortable, stream stereo sound from TVs and radios directly to the hearing aid itself, let you talk on your phone hands-free, and much more. Now, instruments are smaller (and in some cases, invisible), more comfortable and powerful than ever.
