Nerve-type hearing loss is a reduction in the ability to hear sounds, to hear clearly or to understand speech.
The first sounds to disappear are the high-frequency sounds, like the voices of women and children.
People with high frequency, nerve-type hearing loss complain that they hear but can’t understand. The condition is worse in the presence of background noise or with more than one person talking.
signs of nerve-type loss include ringing or sounds in the ears, difficult hearing over the phone, inability to understand speech, especially in a noisy environment, and the need to turn the volume up on the television.
Thanks to modern technology, 90% of nerve-type hearing loss can be helped with hearing aids.
