Exposure to noise is one of the biggest contributors to hearing loss in the UK and Ireland. This can be caused by extended exposure to loud levels of noise such as concerts, work sites and listening to loud music.
You may experience a drop in your hearing and find it difficult to hear high frequency pitches as well as you used to. Prolonged exposure will also impact lower and higher frequencies also. You may notice it is difficult to follow conversations even in a quiet environment.
Hearing aids may be able to help you improve your hearing. If you believe you are suffering from noise-enduced hearing loss the best thing to do is book a hearing test with an audiologist, Amplifon offer these completely free.
