Loss or difficulty in hearing is a problem that requires proper management. There are two main categories of hearing devices used to solve hearing problems namely hearing aids and hearing amplifiers.
Hearing amplifiers also known as personal sound amplifiers are indicated when you have difficult in hearing but not complete hearing loss. As the name suggests, the devices amplify sounds to enable better hearing.
Instead of compensating for loss of hearing, the amplifiers help to hear sounds that you would normally find difficult to hear such as watching TV quietly without disturbing others or hearing your children sleeping in their room.
Hearing aids on the other hand are used for compensating hearing loss. They are prescribed medical devices intended to improve hearing and are recommended after a hearing test called audiogram is done.
Hearing amplifier helps amplify all sounds around the person wearing it. The amplification helps hear the subtle sounds that you would normally miss.
In short, all sounds are heard louder when an amplifier is used. Their basic mechanism is similar to a hearing aid where the device intakes sound input through a microphone, digitally processes it and feeds the processed sound to the ear.
Amplifiers are designed to make sounds louder for all frequencies. Generally amplifiers endow the wearer super hearing power, but do not compensate hearing loss.
