Cochlear Microphone Mimics Natural Hearing

The current invention employs novel construct designs for hearing aids and cochlear implants. The new design enables patients with hearing loss who require amplification to enjoy their implants without frequent occurrences of unnatural sounds. The key advantage of this new invention is allowing patients to enjoy more natural sounds over the range of audible frequencies. The invention accomplishes this by transforming the input sound wave into electrical energy in an innovative fashion. Complaints of unnatural sound occurrences by patients with hearing aids and cochlear implants are well documented. Therefore, a significant improvement in the quality of sound heard by patients would give an implant or aid manufacturer an enormous competitive edge.
