What Does Hearing Loss Sound Like?

You can’t recreate hearing loss simply by plugging your ears. A person with normal hearing can hear quiet, medium and loud sounds that vary from low pitch to high pitch with amazing clarity and definition.

When you have hearing loss, you often lose higher pitched sounds, like the sound of women’s and children’s voices or consonants like T, S and F. Even though you still may be able to hear strong vowel sounds such as A, E and I, speech becomes harder to comprehend.
