Is it common for teenagers to complain of hearing difficulties in noisy environments and if they are should they visit Specsavers for a hearing test?

Answer: 

It is not unusual for teenagers to complain of hearing difficulties in noisy places.

If they are under 18 years old, they should visit their GP in the first instance.

It is common for teenagers to produce more wax so the GP will examine their ears and recommend wax removal if required. If there is no build up wax, the GP will advise you of the most appropriate location to take them for a hearing test.
