The Manufacturing process of hearing aids

Image
BackgroundThe hearing aid is an instrument that amplifies sounds, particularly speech, for people with hearing impairments. It may be worn comfortably behind the ear, in the outer ear, within the ear canal, in the frames of eyeglasses, or against the body or in the clothing. The main elements of the aid are a microphone, an electronic amplifier to make the sound louder, an earphone or receiver, and an ear mold or plastic shell that serves to couple acoustic energy (sound) from the earphone to the eardrum either directly or through plastic tubes. The sound is converted to an electrical signal, amplified, then reconverted to acoustic energy in the inner ear. A battery, the typical power source, can also be contained in the shell.The microphone and earphone together form a transducer and determine the performance of the aid over a range of frequencies. The adjustment of tone (low and …

Think hearing loss is a modern-day condition, occurring in line with the development of personal music players and industrial equipment? Think again. This is the evolution of the hearing aid.
Hearing loss has been around for centuries. Up until the 16th century, people assumed individuals with hearing loss also had other disabilities. Individuals were heavily discriminated against until a Spanish monk named Pedro Ponce disproved this theory by teaching the deaf sons of a nobleman how to read, write, speak and do math.

Difference Between Hearing Amplifiers & Hearing Aids

Difference Between Hearing Amplifiers & Hearing Aids
Despite serving similar purposes, hearing amplifiers and hearing aids are two very different things. Let's go through what sets these devices apart from one another.


While television ads have made personal sound amplifiers a tempting purchase, many people have failed to recognize the key differences between hearing amplifiers and hearing aids. Frequency-specific hearing loss is not something that can be mitigated through the amplification of all sound and using an amplifier where a hearing aid should be used can be dangerous.

Many audiologists and organizations have tried to stress the difference between amplifiers and hearing aids. Even the FDA put out a notice warning people that hearing amplifiers are not a replacement for hearing aids. Here are a few of the key differences between the two devices, and why hearing aids are …
