The ears serve a lot more functions than you might realise at first. They are fundamental in assimilating speech, music and sounds, and they are used for orientation and localisation. You only have to close your eyes and concentrate fully on your ears and you'll soon notice that directional hearing is an invaluable orienting guide.
All in all, unimpaired hearing enriches your life all the time everywhere you go, allowing you a greater range of experiences and above all making you safer.
The concha captures external sounds in the form of sound waves. From there, they are funnelled through the auditory canal to the eardrum. Sound is transmitted via the eardrum to the ossicles in the middle ear (called hammer, anvil and stirrup because of their shapes) and from there to the inner ear. In the inner ear, also called the cochlea from the Greek for snail or screw because of its spiral shape, hair cells convert the sound vibrations into electrical impulses. Auditory nerves carry the impulses to the brain which then identifies the sounds as music, a dog’s bark, rushing water, bells chiming, speech, etc.
A non-binding hearing test with a hearing system specialist can provide you with free and fast information about your personal hearing.
