Hearing Aid Basics 
  • What are hearing aids?

    • Medical devices fit to an individual's hearing loss that amplify sound and speech

  • What is the difference between a hearing aid and an amplifier?

    • Hearing Aids are digitally programmed to fit your hearing loss. Hearing Aids will only target the sounds you can't hear well,  while amplifiers just make all sounds louder.

    • Hearing aids can have multiple programs for different listening environments- including noisy places.

  • What are the important parts to a hearing aid?​

    • Components include at least one microphone, an amplifier, a speaker and a battery

    • Some batteries are rechargeable!

  • Why do people with hearing loss need hearing aids?

    • Hearing Aids can help make some sounds louder so that they can listen, communicate, and participate more fully in daily activities.

  • How can I get the most out of my hearing aids?

    • Wearing the hearing aids all-waking-hours: from the time you get up in the morning until you go to bed at night

    • Communicating with your audiologist about your needs and concerns
