Top 5 Early Signs of Hearing Loss

Symptoms of loss in hearing can either build up gradually by time or happen abruptly. It depends. But either way, there are still common signs that can help you figure out early if you’re already in need of a hearing aid. You shouldn’t go on neglecting these symptoms, rather, it should serve as your early warning signs to go and have your ears get tested for possible hearing loss issues.

  • Difficulty understanding voices around noisy environment

Are you having a hard time hearing the person talking to you when you are presented with a noisy situation? If you notice yourself frequently having a difficulty understanding voices while surrounded with background noises — for instance, when you’re in the mall, restaurant, or any other crowded places — take note and let it be an early sign of hearing loss.

  • You turn up your TV volume way too loud

Recently, do you often get called out by people for listening to the television or radio way too loud? Since hearing loss causes a person to have a difficulty understanding sounds, you may not realise that you are often trying to turn up the volume of your audio devices until someone points it out. Don’t neglect this and treat it as a warning sign.

  • Sounds seem muffled

Ever felt like your hearing capacity has been reduced? Do voices and sounds in general muffle? Or does it feel like you have a cotton in your ear? If yes, you are most likely experiencing muffled hearing. This symptom refers to that feeling when sounds don’t come through normally, like there’s a clog preventing sounds to come through to your ears. That’s muffled hearing. It is one of the early warning signs that if left untreated can lead to permanent hearing loss issues.

  • Ringing in your ears

Have you been experiencing ringing, buzzing, or hissing in your ears? This is called Tinnitus and is often accompanied by hearing loss. It involves the frustrating sensation of hearing sound even when there is no external trigger and appears to be coming from inside the head.

  • Difficulty following conversation

If recently and oftenly, you’ve been catching yourself asking people to repeat what they have just said, take that as an early sign of hearing loss. Also, one way to spot this symptom is if you notice yourself doing lip reading more often than actually listening to what people say.

If you have been experiencing most of the symptoms stated above repeatedly, don’t think twice about getting a hearing test. You can try assessing it yourself first using tons of hearing tests online to give you an idea of the possible gravity of your hearing issue. But it’s still always best to have it checked by a hearing healthcare professional especially if these symptoms have been hindering you from living your daily life normally.

The Voice of two Generations in Singapore radio, Mr Brian Richmond, has chosen The Listening Lab to be his audiology and hearing services provider. We could not be prouder!

JonathanPo-Testimonial
I started experiencing loss of hearing sometimes in 2010 (41 years old) owing to some medical issue. I was having difficulties hearing conservation especially in meeting. Thus, giving me the fear in attending meeting.

Initially I started with Phonak hearing aid. It helps amplified the sound and I could hear better then. Somehow, my hearing loss deteriorated further that in late 2012 (43 years old), there was profound loss of hearing on my right ear. Even digital hearing aid could not help. On my left ear there is still about 50% to 60% hearing with hearing aid. I was lost at this point of time. I was considering learning sign language. I went to see my ENT specialist and my audiologist Mr. Bala advised me to go for an CI as an alternative to my hearing loss.

I also thank God for Engineer and Scientist, giving them the knowledge to create such a complex and sophisticate device to help those with hearing loss like me. It will be all perfect if the cost is affordable too.

We are happy that both the CI and HA have improved mum qualify of life. Now Madam Kek is looking forward to work again to pass her time as she can hear and better communicate with others.

TitusPang-Testimonial
Titus was implanted when he was 18 months old. He is a happy, talkative 6.5 years old now. AB has been with him for 5 wonderful hearing years and we are looking forward to a bright future that lies ahead for him. AB’s Naída CI sound processors are reliable and the technology is constantly evolving and upgrading. When Titus was introduced to Naida Link CROS, his life was enriched. The wireless network established between his Naida CI sound processor and a Naida Link CROS transmitter allows him to hear from both ears. This changes Titus’s life and the way we interact with him. We are also very pleased with the prompt response and service provided to us. The staff in AB genuinely cares! We want to thank AB for making Titus’s hearing journey an enjoyable and a relatively stress free one!

I have been living with progressive hearing loss for more than three decades. Socially, I find myself fearful of communicating with people and at home, watching 'soundless' television programs is a norm.

An unforgettable experience. Trying on a pair of Resound GN hearing aid, I was energized and revitalized and overwhelmed with emotional tears of joy. The Resound GN is truly remarkable and uniquely equipped with three-friendly-user environmental modes that provide hearing comfort wherever we are.

In particular, I like to extend my utmost gratitude to Hearing Consultant. With her profound compassion and wisdom in guiding me, I am confident that I can forge a formidable partnership with the Listening Lab; So that I can rebuild a new chapter of a happy and value-creative life and simultaneously, leaving behind the painful memories of the past three decades.
