How Do Hearing Aids Work?
A hearing aid works similarly to your ear. It consists of the same basic concept to make the sounds around you clear and easily understood. Generally, hearing aids are digital devices powered by a battery to allow a small microphone to collect sounds from your environment. It’s then amplified by converting the incoming sound into a digital code. It analyzes and adjusts the sounds based on your specific needs. The amplified sounds are converted back into sound waves, which are delivered through speakers to your ears.
Scott Lightbody provides audiology testing to evaluate your hearing loss to create a customized treatment plan.
Different Styles of Hearing Aids

- Practice hearing in different environments with a variety of sounds.
- Maintain your follow-up visits for adjustments to ensure that your hearing aid is performing at its best.
