7-week old baby hears for the first timeadmin
A 7-week old boy listened to the sounds of his mother’s voice for the first time with the help of hearing aids. This video shows his reaction. He was diagnosed with moderate to severe hearing loss in both ears, according to his parents. A digital hearing aid has a silicon chip comprising millions of electrical components that constantly process incoming sound. It turns the signals into clearer and more audible sounds and then feeds these into the ear. A hearing aid is created to distinguished between sounds that are amplified and unwanted background noise, which are reduced The difference allows wearers to tell similar sound speech sounds much more clearly. Hearing aids also have a built-in function to recognize loud sounds, like traffic, so they don’t amplify the signals even more.
