how do you make bone induction speakers?

The type that fit behind the ears. My son has hearing issues and the hearing aids don't seem to cut it. He cannot hear the lower frequencies but he seems to respond to vibrations as from quality headphones. I would like to try bone induction with the hearing aids. Thanks in advance.

A question: cheap hearing aid

I know a 93 year old in a rest home. When her daughter threw her out of her house (really!) she didn't get one of her hearing aids. The one she does have is marginal. Buying new is *really* expensive, and she doesn't have any money (related to the process of how her daughter threw her out of the house -- she cried every day for 6 months. No kidding.). I don't have the thousands it would cost to make it right.Recently we gave her an old cassette player and some cheap headphones. She loves it because she can really hear the contents of the tape.I'm looking for a simple device, reasonably small, that has a microphone and can drive the headphones with adjustable volume. I'm thinking small (mp3 player size, not hearing aid size). Any ideas?

Help making hearing aid

Hello! I need a bit of help for a project I am undertaking to make.My is to make such a device which detects the user whether a car or any other vehicle is approaching or not. The project is dedicated for the people who are deaf and cannot cross roads safely. What I think a solution could be is to make such a sensor which detects the horn of a car which further activates a vibrating motor in the pocket of the user.The vibratng motor is not at all an issue but the sensor being the problem. If anyone can please help either by giving your own solution or helping me in what I propose to do. Please help as this is not anything personal but a social cause. Hope to get an answer. Pranjal

Well, I was going to plug my ipod into some old computer speakers. my thumb touched the tip of the jack (ground) and it makes a buzzin noise. Big woop.

I waver my hand over my computer's power supply, I here a loud buzzing noise. How to do this: press tip of thumb to tip of 3.5mm jack turn your speakers up pretty high waver hand over complex electronics boy, do i have fun mornings, lol, being sarcastic

Low-cost hearing aid for someone old

I know an old person--well, okay, my mom--who refuses to wear an in-ear hearing aid, even though she clearly needs it. For whatever reasons, she thinks its too expensive/too invasive/doesn't want to be bothered, even though Medicaid would probably pay for it etc. Not wanting to be reduced to shouting like I'm on an aircraft deck, I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions as to some sort of inexpensive amplifying device I could rig from some some more or less readily available parts. I'm envisioning something like the old style opera glasses on a long handle, though of course this device would be held to the ear (maybe like the old fashioned ear trumpet come to think of it). This way it wouldn't be too much of a hassle for her. I'm suggesting this arrangement rather than headphones of some sort, which again would isolate her (visually) from the rest of the folks at the old age home. If she could just hold something to her ear when she wanted to hear/converse and then drop it when she doesn't want to be clued in...well, that might be the way to proceed. As usual, low-cost design wins, as I don't have that much to spend. Thanks!

Is there something going on in my head? Answered

     Well, I don't have a mental problem or anything, but it often gets weird and I just can't help but to ask. I'll recount several months before, around March or May last year. I was practicing Morse code, practicing with visuals, practicing with audios. After a few weeks of practice, I started hearing Morse code in my head, as in out of nowhere I literally hear it (completely random, it's not spelling out anything last I checked). I asked around about it (deleted the question though) and someone mentioned it's not normal/it's rare. Then fast forward into around November or December, I keep hearing that Morse encoded "SMS" ring-tone from a phone (it's quite popular here, heard it more than a thousand times). I kept searching for that cellular phone, but to no avail. I covered my ears with pillows, and I still kept hearing it. I then concluded that it was in my head. The end result was I couldn't fall asleep for 3 hours lying down on the bed. It's something like LSS (Last Song Syndrome, search it up if you don't know it) to the extremes (to the point that it resonates in your head and you can hear it as an audible tone not from your thoughts). Any thoughts as what may have been causing this?

fake hearing aid, needed!

I'd like to take a basic $20 hearing aid - you know the type - and then rig it as a bluetooth earpiece. In short, I think it would be much better than using those 'slick' metallic earpieces I see people wearing around. I think it could be a great project, but I have very little knowledge about bluetooth electronics. Any suggestions for getting started?

Mosquito sound that adults cant hear

I was at school the other day and I heard this annoying ringing sound. so I was looking around wondering what the hell it was when the teacher(who's probably 40 or 50)was like "what are you doing?" I said that I hear a ringing sound. then he said that I was crazy and there wasn't anything ringing. then the other classmates started listing and they all heard it also. I talked to that kid after class and was like where did you get that sound, and he replied its a ringtone. so when I got home I looked into it more and found out that people who are older supposevely cannot hear it so I played it for my mom and I was expecting her to hear nothing and then she was like "turn that annoying sound off right now". I was like wow........how did you hear it. everybody says she has super human hearing. here is the link to test it out. http://odeo.com/audio/1329298/view

Bluetooth TV audio for Disabled Vet

I am a disabled vet having suffered hearing loss in Iraq (amongst other things). I wear hearing aids and was given a device by the VA that I wear around my neck.  It is a bluetooth device that pairs my iPhone to my hearing aids.  A different device I was given plugged into my TV and sent an audio signal to a set of headphones.  The idea is so that I could turn up my volume w/out affecting everyone elses. BUT... I never got it to work, AND it's been lost since I moved. SO, I was hoping the community could help me figure out a way to incorporate the bluetooth idea but instead of from my phone to my hearing aids, I'd like to go from my TV to my hearing aids.

Earthquake gives US man his hearing back

The earthquake that struck America's east coast yesterday was a blessing in disguise for a deaf man who somehow regained his hearing through the vent.Robert Valderzak has been in a bathington DC hospital since June after he lost his hearing when he fell over. Doctors believe it was as a result of fluid or issues ofthe bones within the ear. Until yesterday, he was employinga diffehirespeakerphone with a lightand an speakers to speak with people. His four youngsters were visiting him in hospital when the 5.8 magnitude quake struck. when It passed, he felt anythingdiffehireinside his head and knew he mayhear and talk again. "I said, you perceivemy hearing is back," Mr Balderzak told Fox News. "i will be able to listen to eachthing, individuals within the hallway." Dr Ross Fletcher, Chief of Staff on the Virginia Medical Centre, said he was pleased his patient is feeling better, despite the stdiversitycircumstances. "a fewpeople appear to be slightly frightened by it but he's delighted that this earthquake came along because soon after the development, he mayhear everything within the room very clearly," Dr Fletcher said. Mr Valderzak believes his hearing was a present from God.

Solar-powered hearing aids for the 3rd world

What's a partially deaf person in sub-Saharan Africa to do, when hearing aids typically cost hundreds of dollars, and he can't even afford the $1 a week to buy new batteries?Retired Canadian business executive Howard Weinstein came up with a solution - a cheap hearing aid for the 3rd world, redesigned with some donated 1st world technology knowhow. It's powered by rechargeable, rather than throw-away batteries - at about the same $1 cost per battery, except they last 2-3 years, and can be recharged using a pocket-sized solar charger. Oh, and he also found that the local deaf people make excellent employees to put these things together, because mastering sign language takes acute hand-eye coordination, needed to do the fine soldering and microelectronics.Sometimes the small things in life make a big difference...Something to Shout About - Africa needed hearing aids.
