Common Causes of Hearing Loss

Common Causes of Hearing Loss | Moor Hearing

Our hearing health is delicate and sensitive. There are many parts of our world that we interact with which can cause damage to our hearing. At Moor Hearing we help our patients to deal with the impact of hearing loss, but what are some of its common causes? In this blog our hearing experts will be sharing some of the most common causes of hearing loss.


Excessive Noise Exposure

This is one of the most common causes of hearing loss that almost all of us experience. Excessive noise exposure takes many forms, most frequently it is by working in loud environments, attending noisy venues like music festivals and constant use of headphones and earphones. These different activities can damage the cells and membranes in the cochlea and overwork the hair cells in the ear, causing them to die. The longer and more frequently you experience excessive noise the bigger the impact will be on your hearing health. Do you think you may be suffering hearing loss from excessive noise exposure? Find out how you can get a free hearing test with Moor Hearing here.



This is one that none of us can avoid, but we are all impacted differently. As we age, the tiny hair cells in our ears are damaged and begin to die. Unfortunately, hair cells do not regrow, which means as they begin to deteriorate it will be permanent. Although there is no single cause of hearing loss in old age, it is a certainty that as you age you will begin to experience hearing loss. Concerned about your hearing?
