Just as we are all different, hearing loss is, too. A Sonus® Hearing Care Professional will explain these various types of loss and, with your input, create a customized solution that fits your lifestyle and needs. They will explain the technical aspects and address any concerns you may have.

Put simply, problems found in different parts of the ear will cause different types of hearing loss.

 

Here are the three types of hearing loss and some of their causes and symptoms:
 

Sensorineural hearing loss

Sensorineural hearing loss is the most common type of hearing loss. It occurs when the inner ear nerves and hair cells are damaged — perhaps due to age, noise damage or something else. Sensorineural hearing loss impacts the pathways from your inner ear to your brain. Most times, sensorineural hearing loss cannot be corrected medically or surgically, but can be treated and helped with the use of hearing aids.

Conductive hearing loss

Conductive hearing loss is typically the result of obstructions in the outer or middle ear — perhaps due to fluid, tumors, earwax or even ear formation. This obstruction prevents sound from getting to the inner ear. Conductive hearing loss can often be treated surgically or with medicine.

Mixed hearing loss

Mixed hearing loss is just what it sounds like — a combination of sensorineural and conductive hearing loss.

A Sonus Hearing Care Professional will help you understand which kind of hearing loss they suffer from—if any—and recommend the best possible treatment for you.
