Excerpt from "How do I know I'm suffering from hearing loss?"
At first, the signs of hearing loss can be very subtle, like a gradual inability to hear higher-pitched sounds like birds chirping, wind blowing or softer instruments in music. You might not even notice these sounds are missing. But over time, hearing loss can worsen, making it difficult for you to hear frequencies that are key to speech, such as the higher-pitched sounds of a children's or some women's voices. Eventually, hearing loss can worsen and make it difficult to interpret most speaking voices. This is where hearing aid technology comes in.
