What is a hearing aid?

A hearing aid is a small electronic device that helps amplify sound. They do not restore your hearing but are designed to amplify the sounds entering the ear. Hearing aids can be worn discreetly in or around the ear and help you process sounds more clearly.

All hearing aids have four basic parts. A microphone to pick up sound, a processor that enhances the signal and delivers it to the receiver, which delivers an amplified signal to the ear canal, and a battery or power source. There are many different styles of hearing aids available and the best one for you will depend on your lifestyle and needs.

How will a hearing aid help me?

The most obvious benefit of hearing aids is you'll be able to process sound with more clarity. You can understand those around you better and communicate more effectively. The improved hearing comes along with other perks, too.

Hearing well can even improve confidence. It's been shown that loss of hearing can come with a loss of self-esteem and affect your confidence in conversations. Being able to hear well again helps you feel less isolated and more connected to others.

Another benefit of hearing aids is that they are very small and discrete. you can improve your hearing without having a large or obvious device attached to your ear. Hearing aids are also designed to be very easy to use.

Hearing aids will improve your hearing and boost your confidence! If you think it's time for hearing aids, contact Arthur H Katz MD at our Munster, IN, location by dialing (219) 934-9396.
