A hearing aid is a highly sophisticated amplification device.
There are many different types of hearing aids, just as there are many forms of hearing loss but they are share five basic components. All of the hearing aid components work on amplifying sounds to enhance particular hearing range problems. The design can vary but the overall effect is to empower you to live your life to the fullest.
Some hearing aids also have ear molds or earpieces to direct the flow of sound into the ear and enhance sound quality. The selection of hearing aids is based on the type and severity of hearing loss, listening needs and lifestyle.
