Hearing Aids
Hearing aids are electronic or battery-operated devices that can amplify and change sound. A microphone receives the sound and converts it into sound waves. The sound waves are then converted into electrical signals.

Hearing Aids for Children

Motorcycle Loudness

People who ride motorcycles may be putting their hearing at risk, according to researchers at the University of Florida. A revving motorcycle can produce noise levels greater than 100 decibels, on par with the loudness of a chainsaw or a rock concert. At that level, hearing loss can occur after about 15 minutes. Wearing a helmet doesn't reduce the noise, the researchers said.
