Verbal Verbosity~100 Word Challenge~Transistor

Transistors were instrumental in the sad demise of the good old fashioned hearing aid trumpet.

Great-Great-Grandad, would just say Eh! What! He would get very annoyed and ask you to speak up!

Great-Grandad used a trumpet to magnify the sound. This was not a very effective alternative, but very picturesque.

Grandad used a transistor powered hearing aid that was strapped to his body. This would greatly amplify the sound.

Dad uses a digital hearing aid that is almost invisible.

I am on the list for a Cochlea operation.

We have come a long way since the transistor revolutionised hearing ability.
