Heard the Sky: Hearing Aid by Air from Malaysia


The first hearing aids appeared in the 17th century, and were called hearing trumpets. In 1800 a London man named Frederick C. Rein created the first commercially available line of ear trumpets.

Later, Rein was commissioned to create a custom acoustic throne for King John VI of Portugal. His subjects would shout into the holes in the armrests. In 1870 Alexander Bell’s invention of telephone started new era in hearing aid history.

Siemens was one of the first manufacturers of an electric hearing aid, and their hearing aids were quite big and not easily portable. Eventually, the electric hearing aid was small enough to fit in a purse or briefcase.

Earl Hanson’s invention made hearing aids to get significantly smaller through the 1920s and 1930s. Military technological advances in World War II helped the development of hearing aids get smaller through miniaturization techniques. This evolution is evident in Zenith's pocket-sized Miniature.

Over decades new advancements were introduced by many companies, including Bell, and the first digital prototype of the hearing aids appeared in 1982.

In 2013 ReSound introduced a hearing aid with iPhone compatibility.

Hearing aid wearers started swiping and tapping their screens to control their devices. The iPhone-compatible hearing aids could also enabled wearers to stream calls and music directly from their devices. In 2022 virtually all premium hearing aids are Bluetooth enabled.

Today's hearing aids are fully connected smart devices that leverage AI, health tracking, and even real-time translation.

In the middle of December Delivery World shipped lot of hearing aids from Kuala-Lumpur (Malaysia). The customer is completing the customs processing of the cargos, and soon the goods will be sold by its distributor at destination.
