Abstract

A hearing aid is proposed which combines the advantages of a hearing aid to be worn in the ear with the advantages of a hearing aid to be worn behind the ear or in the pocket. In the hearing aid according to the invention, the earpiece (22) is located outside the hearing aid housing (10) in an otoplastic body (20). The connection between an amplifier (12) of the hearing aid and the earpiece (22) is wireless. In an illustrative embodiment, an ultrasonic or infrared connection is provided as wireless connection. In this arrangement, an ultrasonic or infrared transmitter accommodated in the hearing aid housing (10) is connected to the amplifier output (13). The otoplastic body (20) contains a corresponding ultrasonic or infrared receiver and its own power source (23) for supplying the receiver with power. The output of the receiver is connected to the earpiece (22), the sound exit piece (24) of which passes into a sound duct (25) which ends in a sound exit opening (26) in the otoplastic body. <IMAGE>
