A hearing aid amplifies sounds entering the ear. They are most often prescribed for people with a type of hearing loss called ‘sensory’, which means that some of the tiny hair cells in the inner ear are damaged. In order to find out which type of hearing aid is best for you, an audiologist will assess your hearing, help you choose the most appropriate hearing aid and adjust the device according to your needs. If you have hearing loss in both ears, you will get better results with two hearing aids. Hearing aids are small electronic devices that can be highly customized to address different types of hearing loss. All digital hearing aids contain at least a microphone to pick up sound, a computer chip that amplifies and processes the sound, a speaker that sends the signal to your ear, and a battery for power. Hearing aids can be placed inside or outside the ear.
