What are hearing aids?
11 March, 2019
Hearing aids are small devices that allow a person to hear better in quiet or noisy environments. They allow the users to listen and communicate with others, and be able to go about their normal activities, even after they have been affected by hearing loss. Hearing aids improve hearing by magnifying sound vibrations that enter the ears. They convert sound that is received through a microphone and amplify it through an ear fitting at the right volume for the level of hearing loss that a person has. Even as recently as a few decades ago, many who suffered from hearing loss felt embarrassed to wear hearing aids due to their large design that stood out to others. Thankfully now there are many discreet options that are almost impossible to spot.
