Types Of Hearing Loss

Ear Evaluation

There are basically three primary types of hearing loss. (If you haven’t already read the “How we hear” article, it might help to look at that one first.) A conductive hearing loss is caused by something that stops sound from getting through to the inner ear.

The diagnostic hearing test battery we perform helps us to differentiate between the various types of hearing loss. It also allows us to determine the need for additional medical referral or hearing aids.
