What is Hearing Loss

Loss of hearing or hearing loss happens when any part of our delicate hearing system stops working properly, whether due to damage or deterioration. The most susceptible and common parts to break down are the microscopic stereocilia, the thousands of tiny hair cells that detect and send sound impulses to the brain. When these tiny hair cells become injured, diseased or die naturally, the result is sensory hearing loss. This is by far the most common type of hearing loss.
