How Your Ear Works

How Does

The Ear Work?

The ear consists of three main parts and performs a vital function in receiving and interpreting sound. The ear itself consists of three parts:

  • Outer Ear
  • Middle Ear
  • Inner Ear

The Outer Ear collects the sound vibrations in the Concha (1) and passes them along the Ear Canal (2). The sound vibrates the Ear Drum (3) which in turn moves the tiny bones in the Middle Ear (4). This movement transmits vibrations to the Cochlea (5) in the Inner Ear where they are received by fragile microscopic hair cells that convert vibration into nerve impulses for onward transmission by the Auditory Nerve (6) to the brain for recognition.

It is very important as human beings to use our sense of hearing. Losing the sense of hearing can completely change a persons way of living. We should be properly educated in how to care for our sense of hearing by knowing how it works and preventing common hearing loss causes.

The ear consists of three main parts and each performs a vital function in receiving and interpreting sound. Permanent hearing loss can occur once any of these parts encounter a problem, as it is very important that they function together properly.

The hair cells are fragile and some die as a function of disease, head injuries, medication, exposure to noise and age.

These conditions cannot be medically or surgically corrected. The best treatment for hearing loss from damage to the hair cells or auditory nerve are hearing instruments.

Your Hearing Aid Audiologist will be able to identify each area of your ear and assess its condition. Only once we have fully assessed your hearing and taken into consideration your lifestyle and cosmetic preferences will you be offered a suitable solution. Often other providers recommend solutions that me not be ideally suited to you.
