Parts of a Hearing Aid
Common hearing aids include a microphone, amplifier, and speaker. Sound enters the ear normally, is received by the microphone and that sound is then amplified and sent to a speaker where the processed signal is output. This happens in a similar way to your favorite musician who sings into a microphone at a concert and everyone hears their voice on loudspeakers. According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), hearing aids help those who have suffered hearing loss from damage or harm to the sensory cells in the inner ear, named hair cells. When these are damaged, this type of hearing loss is called sensorineural hearing loss.
Types of Hearing Aids
There are many fits for hearing aids depending on the level of style, comfort, and potentially hearing loss you have. We offer a wide variety of hearing aids at Florida E.N.T. & Allergy. In order to evaluate your hearing loss, schedule a hearing test today with one of our Doctors of Audiology.

Hearing aids you can control with your cell phone!
Hearing aids are a tiny piece of technology that can be life changing; and that technology continues to evolve. The answer is in the palm of your hand. Trigger your lights, home alarm or smart thermostat when you turn your hearing aids on or off. Tell your hearing aids to notify you when your battery is low, the laundry is finished, or someone's at the door. With these smart hearing aids, it's all up to you. Ask our audiologists if this technology is right for you.
