The team of audiologists in store has pulled together a Q and A to explain more about hearing loss.
Q: How do we lose our hearing?
A: There are various ways that hearing can get worse. Exposure to very loud sounds or prolonged and repeated exposure to loud noise can cause permanent damage. Everyone’s hearing will deteriorate at some stage. Typically it’s the higher frequencies we lose first, making it difficult to distinguish speech from background sounds. Initial signs of hearing loss can include ringing in the ears, known as tinnitus.
