Heroes of Hearing Heroes Blog/Hearing Loss/Can You Hear Me Now? Understand Hearing Loss with Our Hearing Loss Simulator

Friday, March 17, 2023

Welcome to our latest video where we explore the potential long-term hearing damage that can result from exposure to loud music, using the iconic song "Jailhouse Rock" by Elvis Presley as an example.

In this video, we use a hearing loss simulator to demonstrate the impact that loud music can have on our hearing over time. We'll show you how exposure to sounds above 85 decibels can cause permanent hearing loss and how prolonged exposure can increase the risk of damage.

We'll start by listening to the original track of "Jailhouse Rock" and then we'll simulate what the song would sound like if you were suffering from hearing loss.

Protecting your hearing while still enjoying music and other loud sounds is important to your overall hearing . Whether you're a music lover or simply concerned about your hearing health, this video is a must-watch.

So, sit back, relax, and learn what music can sound like when you are experience hearing loss, all while enjoying the classic sounds of Elvis Presley's "Jailhouse Rock".

There are three main types of hearing loss: conductive hearing loss, sensorineural hearing loss, and mixed hearing loss.

1. Conductive Hearing Loss: This type of hearing loss occurs when sound waves are not able to reach the inner ear properly due to blockage or damage in the outer or middle ear. Causes of conductive hearing loss can include ear infections, a build-up of earwax, damage to the eardrum, or abnormal growths in the ear canal.

2. Sensorineural Hearing Loss: This type of hearing loss occurs when there is damage to the inner ear or the auditory nerve. Causes of sensorineural hearing loss can include aging, exposure to loud noise, head trauma, genetic factors, or certain illnesses and medications.

3. Mixed Hearing Loss: As the name suggests, mixed hearing loss is a combination of both conductive and sensorineural hearing loss. This means there is damage to both the outer or middle ear and the inner ear or auditory nerve. Causes of mixed hearing loss can include a combination of the factors that lead to conductive and sensorineural hearing loss.


It's important to note that there are also other less common types of hearing loss, such as central hearing loss and auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD). A hearing healthcare professional can help diagnose the type of hearing loss you have and recommend appropriate treatment options.
