In order to hear well, your ears need full access to sound across a range of pitches and loudness levels. Think about a stereo and how you might adjust the bass or treble to improve the quality of music. To hear a classical symphony well, you need to be able to hear the softest and the loudest parts of it. When parts of your hearing such as bass, treble, or awareness of soft sounds are compromised, it can prevent you from understanding and enjoying the sounds of life.

Hearing But Not Understanding

Hearing sounds but not always understanding is the most common complaint of people with early hearing loss. Other signs of hearing loss may include ringing or noises in the ears or a sensation that your ears are clogged.

Quality Of Life Impacted By Hearing Loss

Hearing contributes significantly to your overall well-being, and if you have noticed more difficulty recently, you owe it to yourself to have it tested. The earlier you address hearing loss, the better your success will be with treatment. If you would like to schedule a free hearing screening and consultation, schedule an a​ppointment at one of our Washington, DC Metro locations.
