What is a hearing aid?

Hearing aids are small, high-tech devices that help you hear if you suffer from hearing loss. They amplify your surrounding sounds (such as conversations, TV shows, or the radio) to help you communicate and participate in everyday situations.

Digital hearing aids

How does a hearing aid work?
Sound is carried across three different components:

  1. Sound enters the hearing aid through a microphone.
    A microphone, set within the small part that you wear in your ear, picks up sounds around you.
  2. Sound is processed and amplified.
    Sounds are then analysed via the processing chip, and processed sounds are sent to the amplifier.
  3. Sound is delivered to a receiver.
    Amplified sounds are sent to the loudspeaker inside the device, which then transmits sounds into the inner ear where they are transformed into electrical impulses. The brain receives these electrical impulses and processes them to create audible sounds.

And whether it’s bird singing now, whether it’s the water lapping, sounds that I kind of lost and it’s a lovely feeling.





It’s just normality has returned to my life and I didn’t think that was possible.

Tony walking on the street



You don’t need batteries anymore because they’re charged.

Hearing aid’s charging



So, you have a charger beside your bed, or wherever you put it, and literally you just put them on charge, and they’re charged all the time. So that’s made it much easier.

I thought it’s like being seen with a Zimmer frame. Psychologically, that’s what I was thinking. What I’m trying to do is to draw on my experience and encourage other people not to make the same mistake.

Tony walking by the water



So, to them, I would say, look, shake off any inhibitions because the difference to the quality of your life in doing the things that matter in life simple again, I use the word interaction, verbal interaction, whatever it is, just life. There is a better quality of life guaranteed on the back of it.

Tony walks on the beach



It’s given me an inner confidence that I’d think I lost to some degree, particularly when I’m talking to my own girls and grandchildren as it is.

Tony looks out towards the sea



Certainly, the Oticon More has been an absolute game changer for me in every respect, different quality of life. Thank you Oticon More
