Summary
Pathe synopsis: In this fascinating collection of aids to hearing there is a 19th-century silver-chased ear trumpet, a walking stick-cum-hearing aid and an early example of a device which used radio valves to amplify the sound. Today, thanks to the invention of sub-miniature transistors and button-sized batteries, modern hearing aids can take the form of hair clips, earrings, or be incorporated in spectacles, not merely inconspicuous but actually glamorous.
