How hearing aids work? Hearing aids can provide the assistance you may need to being able to hear the world around you in full colour. Hearing aids pick up all the amazing sounds around you, they process the sounds and release the signal back into your ear – all instantaneously giving you a rounded 360 degree listening experience customised just for you. Hearing Aids are available with two types of technology: analogue and digital.
The parts of a hearing aid There are different types of hearing solutions available, but they all have the same five key components: ۱٫ Mircrophone The microphone on the outside of the hearing aid picks up sound from the air as it enters the ear and converts sound waves into digital signals ۲٫ Microchip A microchip – a miniature computer that enables our expert Audiologists customise your hearing solution giving you the joy of re-connecting with the world around you. ۳٫ Amplifier The amplifier strengthens the digital signals ۴٫ Battery A tiny battery powers the hearing aid ۵٫ Receiver The speaker converts the digital signals into vibrations that then pass through the inner ear to the brain
Hearing aids use the same basic parts to carry sounds from the environment into your ear and make them louder. Most hearing aids are digital, and all are powered with a hearing aid battery.
Small microphones collect sounds from the environment. A computer chip with an amplifier converts the incoming sound into digital code. It analyzes and adjusts the sound based on your hearing loss, listening needs and the level of the sounds around you. The amplified signals are then converted back into sound waves and delivered to your ears through speakers.
