Let’s talk about hearing loss to better understand and see how Advanced Audiology can help.

What Can Cause Hearing Loss?

Hearing loss can be caused by many different factors. Age-related hearing loss is most popular as it effects a large percentage of adults over a certain age in life. Hearing loss can also be the result of constant loud noises such as a noisy job or career. Sudden noises such as an explosion or other type of bang can also cause permanent damage to the ear, resulting in hearing loss.

Symptoms of Hearing Loss

Unfortunately, most hearing loss happens gradually so that you do not notice it as much. However, you may find yourself having difficulty understanding conversations or listening to the TV. You may find you are having to ask other people to speak up when they are speaking to you. You may also feel as if they are mumbling as they speak.

Children speaking and females can become more difficult to understand due to the pitch in their voice. Others may complain that what you are listening to is way too loud. And you may experience ringing in your ears or tinnitus.
