Hearing loss can range from mild to extensive and has many various causes, consisting of injury, disease, congenital diseases and the ageing process. Both types of hearing loss are conductive hearing loss and sensorineural hearing loss. When one has a combination of both conductive and sensorineural hearing losses it is called a mixed' hearing loss. Hearing loss at birth is referred to as hereditary hearing loss, while hearing loss that happens after birth is called obtained listening to loss. The most common root cause of gotten hearing loss is sound, which accounts for over one quarter of people affected by hearing loss. Conductive hearing loss influences the transmission of noise between the internal and outer ear. For instance, this may be brought on by: affected wax in the ear canal; failure of the three little bones inside the middle ear to pass along audio waves to the internal ear; failure of the tympanum to vibrate in response to acoustic wave.
