Hear­ing Sys­tems
Hear­ing sys­tems come in a vari­ety of designs with a wide range of func­tions and fea­tures to address an individual’s spe­cif­ic needs. The most basic com­po­nents include a micro­phone, an ampli­fi­er, a receiv­er, and (in the case of dig­i­tal hear­ing sys­tems) a small com­put­er. The unprece­dent­ed effec­tive­ness of mod­ern dig­i­tal sys­tems comes from a pow­er­ful com­bi­na­tion of pro­fes­sion­al exper­tise, soft­ware, and hard­ware.

Surgery & Implants
Devices sur­gi­cal­ly insert­ed into the ear to improve hear­ing, facil­i­tate lip-read­ing, and make it eas­i­er to dis­tin­guish cer­tain sounds. Typ­i­cal­ly, these are most help­ful to deaf or pro­found­ly hear­ing impaired peo­ple who can­not use hear­ing sys­tems. A few exam­ples of sur­gi­cal implants include:

  • Cochlear Implants
  • Mid­dle Ear Implants
  • Bone-Anchored Hear­ing Sys­tems
  • Audi­to­ry Brain­stem Implants

Assis­tive Lis­ten­ing Devices
Assis­tive Lis­ten­ing Devices are spe­cial­ized tech­nolo­gies that help peo­ple with all degrees of hear­ing loss. These devices can facil­i­tate improved face-to-face com­mu­ni­ca­tion, recep­tion of elec­tron­ic media, tele­phone recep­tion, and recep­tion of impor­tant warn­ing sounds and sit­u­a­tions.
