An electronic instrument that amplifies sound for a hearing-impaired user
A hearing aid uses a built in microphone to make sounds louder so that you are able to hear more comfortably.Â Hearing aidsÂ are battery-operated and are usually worn in or around your ear. They are available in different shapes, sizes and types. In the UK, you can either get a hearing aid free from the National Health Service or buy one privately from a registered hearing aid dispenser.
a miniature electronic instrument that makes sounds louder. Sounds are picked up by a microphone, processed and amplified to accommodate the specific nature of the hearing loss, and directed to the wearer's ear. Hearing aids vary in style (completely-in-the-canal, in-the-canal, in-the-ear, behind-the-ear) and in technology (analog, digitally programmable, digital). Current hearing aid technology processes speech and environmental sounds to optimize speech understanding, and keep sound levels audible and comfortable.
A hearing aid consists of a receiver and amplifier of sound. All sounds in the environment are amplified with the same intensity. A hearing aid does not sort, process or discriminate amoung sounds. Because someone is wearing a hearing aid it does not mean that the person can hear normally. Aids do not correct hearing, but they improve hearing in some people. They may enable someone to hear a voice even though he or she may not be able to understand words.
Any wearable instrument or device designed for, or represented as aiding or compensating for impaired or defective human hearing, and any parts, attachments or accessories of such instrument or device.
An instrument that amplifies sound to assist persons with hearing loss. They are distinguished by where they are worn: in the ear (ITE), in the canal (ITC), completely in the canal (CIC), behind the ear (BTE), or on the body.
Apparatus or mechanical device used by persons with impaired hearing to amplify sound. Same as amplification device.

a wearable electronic device for correcting hearing loss by amplifying sound
An amplification device to assist persons with various hearing loss. They may be worn in the ear (ITE), in the canal (ITC), behind the ear (BTE), or on the body. The newest development is a programmable hearing aid.
A device worn behind the ear, in the ear, or (rarely) on the body by persons with hearing loss. It amplifies sound and requires the presence of hair cells for effectiveness.
electronic device that brings amplified sound to the ear.
An electronic device which is utilized by an individual with hearing loss to amplify sound and therefore make the sound more audible.
An electronic device that is designed to couple to the ear and to amplify and deliver sound to the ear. A basic hearing aid consists of a microphone, amplifier and receiver.
An electronic device that conducts and amplifies sound to the ear.
A device worn by an individual which amplifies sounds.
An electronic device that amplifies sound and directs it into the ear. A hearing aid consists of a microphone, an amplifier (makes the signal louder), and a receiver (loudspeaker). Sound usually enters the ear through an ear mold worn in the ear. The most common style of hearing aid for children is a behind-the-ear hearing aid in which the hearing aid fits behind the top and back part of the ear and connects via a small tube to the ear mold. For adults, the most common hearing aid is one that is worn inside the ear canal.
Device with a sound receiver and an earmold that fits into the ear; amplifies speech and environmental sounds.
