Hearing loss has many different causes and contributing factors, depending on which type of hearing loss is diagnosed. The three basic types of hearing loss are Conductive loss, Sensorineural loss and Mixed loss.
Conductive hearing loss: It is caused by impairment of the outer or middle ear that prevents sound from being conducted to the inner ear. Ex: Ear Wax, Infection, etc. This may be temporary or permanent, depending on the cause.
Sensorineural hearing loss: it is the most common type of hearing loss, occurring when there is damage to either tiny hair cells- of the inner ear or the auditory nerve itself, which weakens the transfer of nerve signals to the brain. Ex: Aging, High Noise Exposure, etc. This is mostly permanent
Mixed hearing loss: that has both conductive and sensorineural components is categorized as mixed. They may have sensorineural hearing loss and then develop a conductive component in addition or vice-versa. Ex: Age-related loss with Ear wax.
Tinnitus is the term used to describe the ringing sensation in the ears. Tinnitus is usually subjective; it is perceived only by the patient and therefore, diagnosis, monitoring and treatment efficacy rely mostly on self-report. In India, it is a very common complaint that affects 7% of population and has been associated with a range of physical and emotional disorders.Approximately 17% of the population experiences bothersome tinnitus and 20% of those cases suffers from its severe manifestation. Due to the absence of external stimuli, tinnitus (also known as phantom noise) is a condition that is frequently induced by loud noise, a range of health issues and some drugs. Tinnitus is known to be exacerbated by caffeine, alcohol and smoking among other things.
The most prevalent type of hearing loss is a high frequency hearing loss, which occurs at high frequencies. In conversation, low-pitched vowels can be heard and understood, but high-pitched consonants such as “ss” & “th” are hard to understand. As a result, speech becomes muffled and difficult to comprehend.
The process of getting a complete diagnostic hearing test is simple, non-invasive and painless. The evaluation is carried out by a qualified doctor and takes approximately 45 minutes.
A hearing evaluation consists of an ear examination as well as specialized testing to determine the patient’s hearing sensitivity and reaction to speech.

It also keeps both ears active, which helps to prevent hearing loss and improves the capacity to locate a sound source. In most cases, the advantages of utilizing two hearing aids outweigh the extra cost.
