Hearing Aids with Thoreya Audiology
Hearing aids are portable devices worn in or behind your ear to help you hear better. They raise the volume of sounds so that a person with hearing loss can listen, communicate and participate in daily activities more efficiently. In quiet or noisy environments, a hearing aid can help people hear more of what they want to hear and less of what they don't.
All hearing aids have three essential components:
- A microphone, which picks up the sound. The microphone is used to transform sound waves into electric signals and to send them to an amplifier.
- An amplifier, the part that makes the sound louder.
- A speaker, which transmits the sound for you to hear.
