  • You frequently ask people to repeat themselves, and notice you can better understand when looking at the person speaking to you in the face.
  • You often think people sound like they are mumbling.
  • You often don't catch parts of conversation or you misunderstand conversation.
  • The people that you spend the most time with comment that you cannot hear well.
  • You don't hear alarms, doorbells, or the phone ringing sometimes.
  • You think your hearing in one ear is better than the other's.
  • There is occasionally a ringing or buzzing noise in your ear.

Signs a Child has Hearing Loss

  • When you call after your child, he or she fails to respond unless you raise your voice or call out a few more times. Your child may also indicate he or she did not hear what you said.
