How Does Hearing Work?
Talk about a miracle. The concept of hearing is incredible! Your brain and ears work together in harmony (unless you’re experiencing hearing loss, then you know it isn’t always so harmonious!)
When sound waves hit your outer ear, they are channeled down the auditory canal (which is a passageway lined with tiny hairs and glands, which produce earwax.) When the wave reaches the end of the canal, it meets your eardrum and 3 tiny bones- making vibrations and moving the bones.
The wave ricochets faster than the speed of light from bone to bone, amplifying the sound. If there is any damage to any parts of your ear, the delicate process will be disrupted and result in major hearing loss.
