Someone suffering from hearing loss may be suffering from various degrees or types of hearing loss, but the most common is known as high frequency (or high pitch) hearing loss.
High frequency hearing loss occurs between 2000 Hertz – 8000 Hertz, leading to difficulty hearing speech in noise, as well as the voices of women and children. Since the normal speech sounds of S, H and F are high in pitch, losing high-frequency hearing make is easy to miss important consonant soundd in conversation, and may lead to other symptoms, such as listening fatigue.
While high frequency hearing loss can be a struggle if left untreated, there are several easy options for effective treatment. Open-fit and custom hearing aids that have large vents allowing the user to hear the low-to-mid range frequency without assistance, while amplify the frequencies effected by the user’s hearing loss. Modern technology can also help users differentiate speech from noise and reduce listening fatigue.
