Signs of Hearing Loss

Hearing Loss Symptoms

At Conor Mullarkey Hearing Care we can perform a professional audiometric assessment of your hearing ability. This assessment is the only way to accurately establish if you are suffering from hearing loss. A drop in hearing acuity may occur because of a build-up wax in the ear, may result in difficulty with specific sounds or may be a permanent but treatable hearing loss. Typically, hearing loss is an insidious, slow decline as opposed to a one-off significant event.

The following are the most common symptoms that you or someone you know may be suffering a hearing loss. Please contact us today, to schedule an appointment, if you have identified any of the signs listed below.
