The parts of a hearing aid
There are different types of hearing solutions available, but they all have the same five key components:
Microphone. The microphone on the outside of the hearing aid picks up sound from the air as it enters the ear and converts sound waves into digital signals
Microchip. A microchip - a miniature computer that enables our expert Audiologists customise your hearing solution giving you the joy of re-connecting with the world around you.
Amplifier. The amplifier strengthens the digital signals.
Battery. A tiny battery powers the hearing aid.
Receiver. The speaker converts the digital signals into vibrations that then pass through the inner ear to the brain.
