Most of the elderly people and a small number of younger people make use of hearing aids for rectifying their hearing related problems. However, not all these hearing aids are similar. The type hearing aid a person needs is dependent on the lifestyle and the level of hearing difficulty. Digital hearing aids are of great demand in the market when compared to the other varieties of hearing aids. Some models of digital hearing aids can completely fit inside ear canal and cannot be seen. They are of great demand as the main benefit of these devices is the way they look. The main drawback of these models is that they will be only suitable for people who have mild hearing problems. The features offered in these models will be limited as most of the advanced hearing features cannot be accommodated in them because of the limited size. Telecoils and dual microphones are among the important innovative features cannot be accommodated in these devices. The market for hearing aids has come a long way from just the ‘in the canal’ hearing aids. Another main type of hearing aid is the one that partly fits into a person’s ear canal. The model is not that visible and can accommodate all the innovative features that are coming into the hearing aids scenario. Some among the latest hearing aids even have a remote control device that will help in controlling the volume and other innovative features of the digital hearing aids. There are certain models that are designed in such a way that the whole ear will be filled by them. Even though the aim of these models are similar to the ‘in the canal’, the structure and design will have many specialties. They will sport bigger batteries than the normal models and thus offer better battery life. Another conventional hearing aid model that still has market is ‘behind the ear’ model. These models are pretty large when compared with the ITE models. Even though they are the most visible among the hearing aids, many people with sever hearing impairment have no other choice than wearing them. One among the latest digital hearing aids models is ‘open ear’ hearing aid. The model offers many great specialties. They are incredibly discrete, problem free and clear sounding. The light make of the model makes it extremely comfortable to wear too. The sophisticated make of the model also requires special mention. The tiny pod that will be outside the ear will hold all the components including battery. From the pod, a thin wire that has a soft rubber dome will go inside the ear. The dome holds the speaker unit. There are four main components of any hearing aid. Speaker, amplifier, microphone and battery are the four main parts. The main function of microphone is to receive the sound. The amplifier in the aids will help in increasing the volume of sound whereas the speaker component will help in transmitting the sound into the ear drum. These are the basic things about hearing aids that you should be aware of. About the Author: Sam Allcock is a specialist in providing hearing aids for all of us.
