What is a Hearing Aid?

A hearing aid is a battery operated, electronic device that amplifies and alters sound to allow for improved hearing. Sounds are received through a microphone which converts the sound waves to an electrical signal. This electrical signal is sent to the processor that interprets the sound based on three dimensions: intensity, frequency (ie. pitch) and complexity (ie. speech, music, noise, babble etc). 


The processor then manipulates and amplifies the signal based on the identified signal and the hearing loss that is programed into the instrument and sends it into the speaker which sends it to the ear. This whole process is done in milliseconds. The more complex the microphone and speaker and more importantly the hearing aid processor and amplifier the more expensive your hearing aid will be.
