Types of Hearing Loss

There are essentially three types of hearing loss. Conductive, Sensorineural or a combination of Conductive and Sensorineural hearing loss. The combination of these hearing losses is more complicated and may require more than one treatment option. Then there are varying degrees of hearing loss. From tolerable, missing small portions of conversation but still making out the meaning, to dangerous, not being able to hear a train or car horn. Read more about the two main causes of hearing loss below. The only way to be sure of which one you have is to have your hearing tested by a professional.

Help Prevent Hearing Loss

We are surrounded by Noise Pollution. Noise pollution is displeasing or excessive noise that we cannot avoid. The word noise is derived from the Latin word nauseas, which means disgust or discomfort. If you are ever exposed to loud noises, you may have felt disgusted or violated. That is noise pollution. When your hearing is damaged beyond repair, your life will be forever altered. Modern technology in hearing tests and hearing aids will help you hear better after the damage is done, but there is no replacement for natural hearing. So, protecting your hearing is a serious matter that deserves your full attention and can help you prevent or slow future hearing loss. Learn about the types of hearing loss here.

I didn't want to wear hearing aids, but I wanted to hear! The staff at Audio Advantage were professional and kind, and also made sure I came back for several adjustments to get those aids perfectly tuned to my loss. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to hear better.
