Hearing Loss is a common problem for Older and Adults and hearing aids are primarily useful in improving the hearing and speech comprehension of people who have hearing loss.Here,let us share some information about the hearing loss and Hearing aids from Earsmate with you.
 
What is hearing loss?
Hearing loss is when your ability to hear is reduced. A hearing loss makes it more difficult for you to hear speech and other sounds. Hearing loss is quite common. The most common causes of hearing loss are noise and ageing. In most cases a hearing loss cannot be cured. Hearing loss is typically treated with hearing aids.
 
What are the types of hearing loss?
There are two main types of hearing loss: sensorineural hearing loss and conductive hearing loss.
 
1.Sensorineural hearing loss
A sensorineural hearing loss results from damage to the tiny hair cells in the inner ear. Age-related hearing loss also known as Presbyacusis is a type of sensorineural hearing loss and so is a noise-induced hearing loss, which is a permanent hearing loss caused by prolonged exposure to high levels of noise.
 
2.Conductive hearing loss
A conductive hearing loss is where the ears’ ability to conduct sound from the outer ear  through the middle ear into the inner ear is blocked or reduced.
 
Besides these two major types, there is also a mixed hearing loss, which is a combination of a sensorineural hearing loss and a conductive hearing loss. A hearing loss can also be sudden, asymmetrical or hidden. The hearing loss can also be bilateral or unilateral.
 
3. Mixed hearing loss
If there are problems with conducting sound to the inner ear and the hair cells in the inner ear are damaged at the same time, it is called a mixed hearing loss. It is a combination of a conductive hearing loss and a sensorineural hearing loss.
 
Other types of hearing loss
A hearing loss can also be a bilateral hearing loss which means that there is a hearing loss in both ears.
You can also have a hearing loss in one ear. It is called unilateral hearing loss or single-sided deafness. A hearing loss in both ears is called a bilateral hearing loss.
 
A hearing loss can also occur suddenly from one day to the other. This is called a sudden hearing loss.
 
If you have a hearing loss in both ears and there is a great difference in the hearing loss between the ears, it is called an asymmetric hearing loss.
 
In some cases, a hearing loss can be hidden. This is called a hidden hearing loss. It is a type of hearing loss that cannot be measured by a common hearing test. You may have a hidden hearing loss if you experience problems with hearing in situations with background noise.
 
What is the degree of hearing loss?
A hearing loss is defined as a certain level of reduced hearing in one or both ears. Hearing loss is divided into categories depending on the degree of the hearing loss. The most common categories of hearing loss classifications are mild, moderate, severe and profound hearing loss.
If you have a mild hearing loss, the quietest sounds that you can hear with your better ear are between 25 and 40 dB. With a moderate hearing loss, the quietest sounds you can hear with your better ear are between 40 and 70 dB. If you have a severe hearing loss the quietest sounds you can hear with your ear are between 70 and 95 dB. And with a profound hearing loss the quietest sounds you can hear are 95 dB or higher.
