Pocket Model Hearing Aids

Pocket model Hearing aids are worn in a pocket or harness at chest level. It consists of the body of the hearing aid containing the microphone, amplifier and controls. A cord transmits the electrical output to a receiver, which converts this signal into sound. The receiver is attached to a mould, which holds it in place. Pocket model hearing aids are outdated technology and we at Nityant Hearing care, Ahmedabad do not suggest people to use these hearing aids. It is because pocket model aids just amplify all the sound irrespective of the users hearing test and hearing report (Audiogram). The user can just increase or decrease the volume. None of the companies like Starkey Hearing, Phonak, Widex, etc manufacture pocket model. Pocket models are priced very low but it does more harm than benefit to the user.
