How hearing aids work

Hearing aids work by enhancing the sounds around you to make them louder and clearer. And modern digital hearing aids are designed to identify and amplify speech rather than background noise.

So with the right advice and prescription most people find they can hear well again in most if not all situations.

How hearing aids enhance sound

Hearing aids are programmed to your needs

Whatever digital hearing aid you choose it will be programmed, or tuned, to your individual hearing requirements.

Then a qualified hearing professional will talk you through all its functions so that you know exactly how it works. They will also make sure it fits correctly and comfortably in your ear, or behind your ear if that is the cosmetic option you have chosen.

If you need any further advice, our staff will be happy to help you. And of course at Specsavers Hearing Centres all our services are free, from hearing tests to fitting and aftercare.
