A hearing aid is a battery-powered, electronic device that makes listening easier for people with a hearing loss. A hearing aid consists of a microphone, an amplifier and a receiver. The microphone picks up sounds in your acoustic environment and turns them into electronic signals. The amplifier selectively amplifies the acoustic electronic signals. The receiver is a very small speaker that changes the electric signals back to sounds and delivers the sound to the ear.
Hearing aid technology is becoming more sophisticated everyday. Today’s digital hearing instruments amplify soft sounds to make them audible just like hearing aids of the past but they are able to provide many advantages over past hearing aids. These improvements include features that protect your ears to ensure that sudden loud sounds like a door slamming are not too loud, sound classifiers that will automatically adjust the characteristics of the hearing aid based on the sounds around you and even features that allow you to wirelessly talk on your mobile phone and have the sound amplified to meet your listening needs.
Hearing aids are amazing little devises that can change your world.

Most people never think that they will have a need for an audiologist and many could not even tell you what an audiologist does. But if you have ever experienced hearing loss or dizziness, then you should consider a visit to Saline Audiology.
Audiologists work with people who have hearing, balance, and related ear problems. They examine individuals of all ages and identify those with the symptoms of hearing loss and other auditory, balance, and related sensory and neural problems. They then access the nature and extent of the problems and help the individuals manage them.

Do you have trouble hearing sometimes, maybe it sounds like people mumble? Or is your hearing problem more profound, and you wear a hearing aid? Well, you’re in good company. About 48 million Americans — 20 percent — have some level of hearing impairment. And if you’re older than 65, one in three Americans has hearing loss. Plus,15 percent of children are impacted by hearing impairment.
Hearing problems can make life more difficult. When your hearing is bad, it can be hard to interact with people around you, and enjoying movies or theater performances is nearly impossible. But a theater in Utah is making a difference, with hearing solutions for everyone.
“We feel like theater — really well done — offers a much-needed escape in an ever-busier world,” said Quinn Dietlein, Hale Centre Theatre’s development director and annual giving manager. “We also feel that this opportunity should be available to as many people as possible.”

HLAA leaders could have been singing the
old Steve Allen lyrics, “This could be
the start of something big” when, in
partnership with the American Academy of Audiology,
they kicked off the Get in the Hearing Loop (GITHL)
campaign in 2010. Back then there were just a few
formally organized efforts, such as Loop New Mexico
and Loop Wisconsin, promoting awareness and the
availability of hearing loops in public places. But only
in Michigan, thanks to the groundbreaking work of
Dr. David Myers of Hope College, and at many of the
nation’s HLAA Chapter meetings did hearing loops have
any real presence.
Advocating for hearing loops in public venues is
now a national consumer-led movement that’s
changing the way people hear in those venues.

So how can I tell if I have hearing loss?
* I often ask others to repeat themselves
* I have a constant ringing sound in my ears.
* Voices sometimes sound somewhat muffled.
* My television volume is overpowering to others.
* I have problems hearing in a group.
