Understanding Hearing Loss – How do our ears hear sound ?


Hearing loss occurs gradually. Some of the most common signs of hearing loss include:

  • People sound as though they are mumbling.

  • You can hear people talking but cannot understand them.

  • Hearing conversation in background noise, like restaurants, is very difficult.

  • Family and friends notice your hearing loss and make mention of it.

  • You have to turn the TV volume louder than what others find comfortable.

Hearing depends on a series of events that change sound waves in the air into electrical signals.
