Therefore, when hearing loss occurs at high frequencies, although the sound sounds loud and can be heard, but because the consonants are not heard, the words“mixed together“No more“清晰“So they can’t hear clearly, there are“Difficult to understand“Case.
If only there is“High frequency hearing loss“When the low-frequency hearing is normal or close to normal, most of the vowels, nasal sounds and environmental sounds can be heard, which gives people an illusion of normal hearing.

High-frequency hearing loss can be diagnosed by pure-audio audiometry of professional opticians, and the degree of hearing loss can be judged from the diagnostic audiogram to determine whether a hearing aid is needed.
