Are all hearing aids the same?

Hearing aids differ in design, size, the amount of amplification, ease of handling, volume control, and availability of special features. But they do have similar components that include:

  • a microphone to pick up sound;
  • amplifier circuitry to make the sound louder;
  • a receiver (miniature loudspeaker) to deliver the amplified sound into the ear;
  • batteries to power the electronic parts.

Some hearing aids also have earmolds (earpieces) to direct the flow of sound into the ear and enhance sound quality.

Based on your listening needs, type of hearing loss, and lifestyle, your audiologist will advise you on which of the basic hearing aid styles and features best meet your communication needs and their related costs.
