Understanding Hearing Loss with DeafHear’s Hearing Aid Service

Causes of Hearing Loss...
DeafHear’s Hearing Aid Service

General wear and tear as we age and exposure to loud noise are the main causes of acquired hearing loss. It is estimated that 55% of people over the age of 60 have some hearing difficulties.

Causes of Hearing Loss

Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

Prolonged exposure to high intensity noise at work and at home can lead to hearing loss developing at an increasingly earlier age. This is because sensitive structures in the inner ear can be damaged by prolonged exposure to excessive noise – or even by a single event like an explosion.
