Hearing Aids And Devices

Hearing aids work by amplifying sounds. They transmit sounds to hair cells in the inner ear, which are then converted into nerve signals to the brain. Hearing aids work with your brain. If sounds from different frequencies are no longer received by the brain, then it gradually "forgets" how to process these sounds. This is why it can take several weeks to get used to hearing aids after not hearing these sounds for several years. Hearing aids help to retrain the brain to hear again and process speech sounds so that not only are you able to hear again, but also understand speech better.

There are a wide variety of hearing aid styles and technologies to suit individual needs, lifestyles and preferences. Modern technology has advanced so that today's hearing devices are "not your grandpa's hearing aids". Explore the various options below.
