Signs of Hearing Loss

Because the symptoms of hearing loss tend to accrue gradually, others often notice our hearing impairment before we do. While hearing loss may occur suddenly, it is more often a slow and incremental process that can develop over a number of years. When you begin to notice the signs of hearing loss, it is important to contact a hearing professional as soon as you can to have your hearing tested. That way, if you are experiencing hearing impairment, we will be able to correct you hearing trouble so that you can better enjoy time spent with family and friends.

At Canary Hearing, our family-owned practice has a staff of experts on hand to help you understand, navigate, and cope with your hearing impairment. With our wide range of hearing rehabilitation services and devices, we can ensure that you receive excellent service in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. From our offices in Annapolis, we are able to help clients throughout Anne Arundel County and the Eastern Shore as well as the greater Maryland area.

Signs of Hearing Loss

There are a number of signs to watch out for that can be red flags that your hearing isn’t what it used to be. These signs include:

  • People seem to be mumbling a lot and we do not hear them clearly.
  • We ask people to repeat themselves more than we used to.
  • Others complain we are turning the television up too loud.
  • We are having more trouble hearing in noisy places like restaurants or malls.
  • A spouse, close family member or friend has told us they think we may be having trouble with our hearing. This is the number one sign that we may be experiencing hearing loss.

If you are experiencing hearing loss you are not alone. The latest research estimates that hearing loss affects a great many people:

Over 35 million Americans experience hearing loss
45-64 years of age – 18% of the population
