Being a Hearing Instrument Specialist and performing hearing tests as a professional, you get to see many different results but a lot of patients and their significant others often complain about;
The TV being too loud
Not hearing the doorbell or telephone
Not hearing women or children
Conversations in groups is difficult
Having a hearing loss can lead to seclusion, not taking part in a conversation. I see many grand parents sit through dinner without saying a word. That can lead to depression. When you miss the punch line of a joke or miss a syllable in a sentence, that can lead to anxiety and stress.
