Conventional hearing aids are electronic devices that process and amplify sounds. They are custom-fashioned to fit either in the ear canal alone or with part of the device worn behind the ear. 

Digital technology and miniaturization of electronics have made conventional hearing aids very sophisticated. They are able to cancel noise, aim the direction of hearing, and customize the sound to compensate for the wearer’s specific hearing loss.

They do require a fitting session with the audiologist, but no surgery is involved.

Their cost is typically not covered by insurance.
