Even mild hearing loss will cause increased listening effort, which makes conversations decidedly less enjoyable.  The greater the degree of hearing loss, the more difficult everyday life becomes. Frustration, irritation and anger set in – not just for you, but for your spouse, family, colleagues and friends.

Conversations get shorter, less frequent, less spontaneous and more to the point. Eventually, they’re avoided almost entirely in an effort to reduce conflict and stress. And that’s how hearing loss causes your  relationships to deteriorate.

Here are some stats from a recent survey of people with untreated hearing loss:

  • 70% need to ask people to repeat themselves.
  • 60% of people with hearing loss have difficulty following conversations.
  • 41% must concentrate to hear someone talk.
  • 32% get annoyed with themselves.
  • 30% have difficulties understanding television.
  • 23% use extra energy to compensate.
  • 21% are told that they have hearing difficulties.
  • 20% answer incorectly due to misunderstanding.
  • 18% get embarrassed with themselves.

Out of these respondents 70% were concerned that what they are experiencing is a problem.  The questions they most commonly asked were:

  • Is it hearing loss? (30%)
  • Is it permanent? (23%)
  • Will it get worse? (37%)
  • Can something be done? (28%)
  • When should I seek help? (23%)
  • Where can I get more information (15%)
  • Can I afford hearing instruments (25%)
