What is a Hearing Aid?

Hearing Aids are sound processors enclosed in a case that fit in or above and behind the ear. Hearing aids contain microphones and speakers that compress, alter and shape the sounds of an immediate environment and project the processed sound to the eardrum to enhance audibility and comprehension to one with damaged hearing. Essentially, hearing aids are a highly customized personal computer that is small enough to fit in your ear.
