Below are some common symptoms that could indicate signs of hearing loss.

  2. Trouble following conversations in groups of people
  3. Your family or friends complain you listen to the TV too loud
  4. You strain to hear or understand conversations
  5. Difficulty hearing in noisy environments like the mall, restaurants or crowded rooms
  6. You say "what?" or "huh?" often or you frequently ask people to repeat themselves
  7. You believe people do not speak clearly to you or that they mumble
  8. You misunderstand what people say or respond inappropriately
  9. You have trouble hearing or understanding children and women
  10. You become annoyed at others because you can't understand what they are saying
