Digital Hearing Aid


A digital hearing aid (DHA) is a compact sound-amplifying device designed to aid people who have a hearing impairment. Like analog hearing aids, DHA has a microphone that picks up sounds and converts them into digital form, a microprocessor that amplifies and processes the digital signal, a miniature loudspeaker that delivers the sound directly into the ear canal and a battery. All components are contained in a plastic case.

There can be different types of hearing aid depending on the case shape:

  • Behind-the-ear (BTE) aids
  • Mini BTE aids
  • In-the-ear (ITE) aids
  • In-the-canal (ITC) aids
  • Implanted aids
  • Hearing aids on the base of smartphone/tablets using special Hearing aid applications.

BTE aids rest behind the ear. ITE aids fill the outer part of the ear – usually, they are custom-made. ITC and implanted aids completely fit in the ear canal being almost invisible. Despite having the similar structure, the work of DHA and analog hearing aids is fundamentally different.
