Hearing Technology

Hearing technology has improved a lot over the past few decades, but at their core, hearing aids have always been made of four basic parts: a microphone, a processor, a receiver and a power source such as a battery.

The microphone picks up the sounds in your environment and delivers it to the processor.
The processor enhances the signal and delivers it to the receiver which then delivers the amplified signal through the ear canal.
The power source, or battery, drives the system.

 

Hearing aid technology comes in a variety of technology levels, based on the sophistication of the processor. Hearing technology can be basic (or entry level) and range to premium. The higher the level of technology in the hearing aid, the more features you get such as better noise reduction, better feedback or "squeal" management, etc.  Hearing aid technology keeps improving, so that Even today’s basic hearing aids offer far more benefit than the premium hearing aids of previous generations.
