the day-to-day activities of their life. However, how does an insignificant piece of equipment make huge impact? In the following video, we will go over the basics of the hearing aid.
Two microphones are used for capturing sounds in the surroundings. The analog-digital converter, also known as ADC can transform analog sound into digital information. The digital signal then gets processed by an electronic chip. It’s pretty high-tech!
The computer chips are calibrated according to the particular hearing of the individual wearer. Some people can hear low frequencies excellently, but are very deaf in higher frequency. Others are completely different, and many more are somewhere in between. Hearing aids have to be ultra-modern to assist those with diverse hearing problems.
If you’re thinking that it takes quite a while. It will take just one millisecond for the entire process. The user will not experience any lag time between the noises they’re surrounded by and the sound that is sent to their ear by the aid to hearing.
