How Does Hearing Loss Sound?

Hearing loss can be difficult to understand if you don’t experience the symptoms first hand. The video below will mimic three levels of hearing loss – mild, moderate, and severe.

Mild Hearing Loss:

Understanding speech and other soft noises is difficult in a loud environment.

Moderate Hearing Loss:

Both soft and moderately loud noises can’t be heard, and understanding speech becomes very difficult.

Severe Hearing Loss:

Conversations must be conducted loudly and require lots of effort.
