Learn more about hearing loss

What is hearing loss and what causes it?

Hearing loss is when your ability to hear is reduced, making it more difficult for you to hear speech and all the other sounds in life you love. Hearing loss is usually gradual and not always recognized for what it is. Some people ignore and work around hearing loss, for example turn up the TV louder.

Hearing loss can be caused by aging, ear infections, ear wax, noise exposure, and dozens of other factors. It typically won’t happen overnight and might not be obvious straight away.

The incidence of hearing loss increases as we get older. Two-thirds of Americans over 70 suffer from heairng loss, and nearly 750 million adults worldwide have some form of hearing loss. But, hearing loss does not just affect over 70s, a report by the WHO states that 500 million adults under 65 also suffer from hearing loss. So, how do you know if you have it?

Signs to help you spot hearing loss

Hearing loss is difficult to recreate. It is not just like plugging your ears. When you have hearing loss, you often lose the ability to hear higher pitched sounds, for example the sound of women’s or children’s voices. Consonants like T,S and F can also be difficult to hear. Hearing loss is complicated to understand but huge advancements in technology have made it easier to correct. Take our hearing screener to learn more.
