How Do Hearing Aids Work?

Hearing aids are small electronic devices worn in or behind the ears. They make some sounds louder so that you can listen, communicate and participate more fully in daily activities if you are experiencing hearing loss. With hearing aids, you’ll be able to hear better in both quiet and noisy situations.

Hearing aids are made of three parts: a microphone, an amplifier and a speaker. Sound is received through the microphone, which converts the sound waves to electrical signals or numerical codes. These signals are sent to the amplifier, which increases the power of the signals and sends them to your ears through the speaker.

Types of Hearing Aids

The basic types of hearing aids are analog and digital, but each of these types comes in a variety of styles to meet your preferences. There are several key differences in the way the different types of hearing aids work.

  • Analog: These hearing aids convert sound waves into electrical signals which are amplified before being sent to your ears. They can be adjustable or programmable, depending on your hearing needs. Adjustable units are custom-built and programmed by the manufacturer. Programmable models can be adjusted by the user, allowing you to set the aid for different listening environments. 
  • Digital: These hearing aids convert sound waves into numerical codes before amplifying them. These codes contain information about the sound’s pitch and loudness, which allows the aid to amplify certain frequencies more than others. The digital circuitry in these units allows for more customization to your specific needs in certain listening environments. Digital hearing aids can be programmed to focus on sounds coming from specific directions as well. 

Signs of Hearing Loss

Audiologists specialize in identifying and measuring hearing loss. They perform hearing tests to assess the type and degree of your hearing loss. If you or a loved one are experiencing any of the following symptoms, then it’s a good idea to consider getting a hearing test for hearing aids in Winnipeg. Some common signs of hearing loss include:

  • Difficulty understanding words in conversations
  • Constantly asking people to repeat themselves
  • Difficulty understanding certain voices, like women or children
  • Difficulty understanding conversations in a crowd
  • Difficulty understanding phone conversations
  • Favouring one ear over the other to hear
  • Complaining of ringing sounds in one or both ears
  • Feeling uncomfortable in social situations you formerly enjoyed
  • Feeling withdrawn, depressed or irritable 

People of all ages can experience hearing loss and may require hearing aids. Winnipeg residents can rely on Kemp Hearing Centres for comprehensive hearing testing and effective solutions.
