How Does Hearing Loss Affect You?

Before you understand how hearing aids work, it is first important that you understand how hearing loss affects hearing.

There are three main parts of the ear:

  • The outer ear
  • The inner ear
  • The middle ear

Each part of the ear plays a vital function in the hearing process and if there is any damage in your ear, it can cause an interruption in hearing. Hearing aids can be used to compensate for any disruption in your hearing.

How Do Hearing Aids Work?

Thanks to advances in technology, hearing aids have become incredibly delicate and sophisticated. Hearing aids rest inside or over your ear and work to capture sound and amplify it. These electrical signals are sent into your ear so that they can be interpreted. There are many different types of hearing aids, including internal devices and external devices.

Hearing aids each have the following basic components:

  • Microphone: The microphone is the place where the hearing aid begins working, as it picks up sound and converts it to an electrical signal, sending it to the amplifier
  • Amplifier: The amplifier takes the volume of sounds in your environment and amplifies them, sending them to the transmitter.
  • Transmitter: The transmitter or speaker takes the electrical signal and changes it into sound, passing it into the ear.
  • Battery: The battery is the main power source which gives the hearing aid life.
