Types of Hearing Loss
This is caused by general wear and tear as we get older, and is apparent in about 1 in 4 adults. It’s caused by hair cell damage in the nerve (Cochlea) and tends to affect high frequency sounds, the beginnings and endings of words, female and children’s speech and certain types of music.
This problem occurs when the nerve is functioning correctly but the sound has trouble physically getting to it. A perforation could be to blame, or pressure build up in the middle ear. Sometimes a conductive hearing loss can be repaired with medical intervention, but that depends on the actual cause.
