A hearing aid is a small electronic device having three basic parts, namely, a microphone, an amplifier, and a receiver that you wear in or behind your ear. In the world of sounds, hearing aids are a blessing to those who were hitherto deprived of the resonance of sounds like speech, noise, music, etc. by amplifying them completely. 

For people with a hearing impairment, it is a constant struggle to listen, communicate and participate in daily activities. Often, family members, friends, and acquaintances get frustrated by repeating the conversation or dialogues from television shows, etc. In addition, people with hearing impairments often find themselves cast out of social gatherings, workplace or family events. In such situations, hearing aids serve as a bridge between the person and his circumstances by drawing him or her closer to two-way communication. With a hearing aid, one can even be alert to potential hazards such as while driving or walking on-road and not be vulnerable around devices like alarms, doorbells, and timers. However, hearing aids do not restore the hearing capacity of a hearing-impaired person. All that they do is to amplify the sounds so that you will  able to hear even soft sounds that you were not able to hear well. 

There are different types of hearing aids and varied styles too that you can select from. You should make an informed decision and choose the type and style that is best suited to you. You can choose from analog hearing aids that amplify electronic signals to digital hearing aids which are more common. Digital devices take into account the sounds around you and convert sound waves into digitalized signals

  • Ability To customize the Aid according to the degree of Hearing Loss
