Loudness discomfort, or hypersensitive hearing, is most common in individuals who have hearing loss. They are sensitive to loud noises and sometimes can barely tolerate what we would consider ordinary levels of sound. Hearing aids can help this condition because their processing is set up to not overload the ear with sound amplification. If you are overly sensitive to noise, or haven’t had a hearing evaluation it’s time to call Worth Hearing and get one scheduled at one of our locations. An evaluation and a treatment plan will help you to continue to enjoy your life to the fullest.
