What are hearing aids?
In its simplest form, hearing aids are like a mini PA system with four basic components: microphone, amplifier, a speaker (receiver), and power supply (batteries).
Hearing aids is a device that is designed to improve hearing by making sound audible to a person with hearing loss.
Hearing aids are classified as medical devices in most countries, including Singapore, and are regulated by the medical regulations.
Small audio amplifiers such as PSAPs or other plain sound reinforcing systems cannot be sold as “hearing aids”.
What types of hearing aids are available?
Today’s devices come in a wide variety of sizes and styles from those that sit behind the ear to invisible styles that sit completely in the ear canal — and feature different technology levels to match your specific needs and budget.
Each type of hearing aid is designed to meet different cosmetic preferences and address different levels of hearing loss.
