What are hearing aids?

Hearing aids are small battery-powered devices that help to improve the hearing of their users. Sitting in or behind the ear, they amplify the sounds around the wearer, making it easier for them to hear quiet noises and communicate in loud environments.

Although hearing aid makes and models do vary in terms of shapes, sizes and features, all have three main parts: a microphone, an amplifier and a speaker. Sound, such as speech, music or ambient noise, enters the microphone, which then converts the sound waves captured into signals that can be understood by the amplifier. The amplifier then works to increase the strength of the signals which subsequently enter the ear through the speaker.

There are many different types of hearing aids available, including In-the-Ear (ITE) hearing aids, Behind-the-Ear hearing aids and Receiver-in-Canal (RIC) hearing aids, making the process of finding a device to suit your personal needs simpler. Hearing aids aren’t one-size-fits-all devices, which is why so many options are out there.

How can I find out if I need a hearing aid?

If you suspect that you may need hearing aids, the best place to start is booking a free hearing check at your local Bay Audiology clinic. Taking around 20 minutes to complete, the hearing test helps to determine whether you are experiencing hearing loss. If the results indicate that you do have hearing loss, additional testing and assessments will then be recommended to help determine what type of hearing loss it is and its severity.

What should you know before purchasing a hearing aid?

There are many different types of hearing aids on the market, which can make the task of choosing just one difficult. Before you settle on a certain type of hearing aid, it can be a good idea to discuss the following with your audiologist or hearing care professional:

  • What features are must-haves for your specific condition
  • What features aren’t absolutely necessary for your needs, but could offer additional benefits
  • What the total cost of your hearing aids will be
  • Which devices are in your price range
  • How long the warranty on your chosen model lasts and what it covers
  • How to care for your hearing aid

Frequently Asked Questions

Which hearing aids are the best?

The best hearing aids for your needs will vary depending on your lifestyle, diagnosis and budget. If you’re unsure which types of hearing aids are right for you, book an appointment at your local Bay Audiology clinic to discuss your options.

Can a hearing aid damage your hearing?

In most cases, hearing aids will not damage your hearing if they fit well and are operating with the correct programming. It is important to note, however, that if your hearing aid is not correctly programmed, sounds could be amplified to unsafe levels. If you are experiencing issues with your hearing aid, book an appointment with an audiologist to check that all settings are operating as they should be.

How do I choose a hearing aid?

Choosing a hearing aid can involve the careful consideration of many different factors including your budget, the severity of your hearing loss and your personal preferences. Discussing your needs with your audiologist is the best way to determine which is the right make and model for you.

Can I wear just one hearing aid?

Yes, you can wear just one hearing aid. In some cases, only one ear will experience hearing loss while the other remains largely unaffected, meaning that a single device is all that’s required. Booking a free hearing test is the best way to find out whether you require two hearing aids or just one.
