Presbycusis (gradual hearing loss) is expected as you age. In the United States, more than half of those older than 65 have some degree of hearing loss. Hue Hearing has products that can help you manage your hearing loss.
There are three types of hearing loss:
Conductive (involving the outer or middle ear)
Sensorineural (involving the inner ear)
Mixed (combining both)
Symptoms Of Hearing Loss
Hearing loss may cause the following signs and symptoms:
Noises and speech are muffled.
Problems understanding words, particularly in noisy surroundings or in crowds.
Consonants are hard to hear.
Avoiding certain social settings.
How Does Hearing Loss Occur?
Hearing loss can be caused by:
Inner ear damage. Aging and listening to loud noise can wear down the nerve cells in your cochlea that transfer sound signals to your brain. You may have difficulty hearing higher-pitched tones. Background noise may make it difficult for you to distinguish words.
The earwax builds up over time. Blocking the ear canal with earwax prevents sound waves from traveling.
Tumors and infections of the ear. These can cause hearing loss in the outer ear or middle ear.
Perforation of the tympanic membrane. Loud noises can cause hearing loss, sudden pressure changes, poking your eardrum with objects, and infection.
The aging process and chronic exposure to loud noises contribute to hearing loss. HueHearing has products that are designed for all ages.
There is no cure for most types of hearing loss. With the help of your doctor or a hearing specialist, you can improve your hearing. Have a look at HueHearing.com for all your hearing aid needs.
