A lot of people have trouble catching what people say, especially in company, despite having good hearing. This may be caused by damage to the so-called motor or amplifier cells in the inner ear. A new type of hearing aid can help balance this out.
A great many people have difficulty hearing others clearly and precisely on a daily basis. Bad acoustics, unclear pronunciation, background noise and music often make it challenging to catch what people say. This results in them having to repeatedly ask questions, straining to hear and perhaps increasingly avoiding conversing in large groups. What a lot of people don’t know is that this may be caused by malfunctions in special hearing cells. According to a theory proposed by hearing researchers, so-called “motor cells” are responsible for amplifying quiet sounds. They vibrate up to 20,000 times per second. If these motor cells do not work properly then quiet sounds are no longer naturally amplified in the ear and loud sounds no longer dampened.
It can be more difficult hearing what is said in a lot of situations. If the motor cells have been damaged by noise or blood circulation problems, hearing aids that amplify quiet speech and dampen loud ambient noise are a good solution.
This function is performed, for example, by the new Phonak Audéo V’s cutting-edge hearing technology which comes in a miniature casing and significantly enhances the user’s ability to hear speech in company. The hearing aids attune to the conversation partner and also recognizes him/her if ambient noise increases.
