The Atlanta Hearing Doctor has options sure to meet your hearing or cosmetic needs

All hearing aids consist of three basic components: a microphone, an amplifier, and a speaker (also called the “receiver”). Where these are placed on the device varies by style, as does the internal circuitry that determines the sound quality and critical sound-processing features — like background noise reduction or spatial mapping (a feature that helps you to better understand the source of sound). Keep in mind that not all styles are suitable for all degrees of hearing loss.
