If you’re hoping that a cochlear implant will restore hearing, you’re in for a disappointment. Although an implant can create a simulacrum of hearing by providing a representation of sounds and can make it possible for a hearing impaired person to understand speech, it is far and away not the same as restoring hearing. So how does it work?
Choosing the right hearing aid is a big decision. Once you’ve got it, you have to live with it – or else try a different aid and incur additional expense. Knowing what types of hearing aid are available and what factors to be on the lookout for will help you to make an informed decision that suits your specific situation.
