15 signs you might have a hearing loss

Hearing loss can creep up on you slowly. Very often, someone will develop a hearing impairment without realising they have a problem. This is why it’s important to familiarise yourself with the signs and symptoms of hearing loss, which are often very subtle.

  1. Everything sounds a bit muffled
  2. You have trouble hearing over loud background noise and often avoid noisy environments
  3. You have trouble following what’s being said in group conversations
  4. The volume on your television and/or radio is turned all the way up
  5. Family and friends often tell you you’ve got a hearing problem
  6. You often misunderstand what people have said
  7. You frequently need to ask people to repeat themselves
  8. You find the voices of women and children harder to understand
