People that can‘t hear properly needs hearing aids. Hearing Aids help them to hear properly. Hearing Aids are things that people put behind their ears. This blog post explains how they work. Hearing aids are powered by a battery. Hearing Aids have lots of things on them like: an ear hook, an amplifier, microphone, volume control, on/off switch, battery and ear mould. That is all the things that are on a hearing aid. Hearing Aids are about $1000. You can buy them at the place where you get your ears tested – the hearing clinic. There are lots and lots all over the world. Hearing Aids are never found in two dollar shops because they are so expensive. Our ears get infections. If your ear gets an infection it is best to go to the hearing clinic. Hearing Aids can not be put in water otherwise they will stop working. They have to get a raincoat or umbrella or hat when it is raining to keep the hearing aid covered. Hearing Aids are easily broken so you have to take very good care of them.
