What are Hearing Aids?

The Colorado Academy of Audiology (CAA) wants to assure that all hearing aid fittings are successful and are performed in an ethical manner.

Today’s hearing aids are much more advanced than in previous years. Due to improvements in micro-electronics, these “mini-computers” are now smaller, lighter and better at processing speech in background noise. Your hearing aids can be individually made for the shape of your ear and specific needs for your hearing loss. Your hearing aid will be programmed through a computer and can be adjusted based on your personal feedback on how things sound to you. Modern hearing aid technology allows audiologists to fit almost anyone with some type of hearing aid technology, regardless of what kind or the severity the hearing loss.
