Hearings Aids How Do They Work?
Do you wonder how the technology works for a hearing aid device? This video shows simply how hearing aids work. Read on to understand more about hearing aids.
A hearing aid is a small electronic device that you wear in or behind your ear. Hearing aids help those who are hard of hearing by making sounds for them louder and clearer.
Hearing aids work in a three-step process. First by amplifying sound through a three-part system: The microphone receives sound and converts it into a digital signal. The amplifier increases the strength of the digital signal. The speaker produces the amplified sound into the ear. Some hearing aids are called BTE, and others are called ITE. BTE stands for behind the ear, and ITE stands for in the ear. This option is up to personal preference. Younger children have the BTE most often while older will have the ITE. A hearing aid can help people hear more in both quiet and noisy situations. You can also wear one or two hearing aids, depending on your need. Many people operate perfectly well with just one hearing aid, but two is often recommended.
