Abstract

Among humans the most common disorder is partial hearing loss. Hearing health is more critical than ever in the perspective of an ageing population and increased environmental noise exposure. People want hearing aids that are smaller, highly power-efficient, and have better audio quality. MEMS microphones are really well to meet those needs. The commercially available hearing aids uses an expensive battery as well as the maintenance is high as a result of constant usage. The survey on Energy efficient and affordable hearing aids is the intention of this study. These works are categorised according to their intended use, manufacturing method, performances, material, and dimension. This is followed by back plate, diaphragm, chamber, and performance parameters

Keywords: MEMs Microphone, Hearing Loss, MEMs applications, diaphragm, Sensorineural hearing loss
