Hearing Loss - Page 2

post #16 of 18

So how's it going for the OP? Still need help finding out how loud you listen? If so, the math ain't that hard..

post #17 of 18

So I know this is an old thread, but I could also be suffering from hearing loss or something, I sometimes have a hard time picking up what people around me are trying to say, I'm not sure wether they really are speaking quietly, or I'm just not paying attention too much, or I'm suffering from hearing loss. I wield the Razer Kraken and I listen to music quite loudly from time to time, at least 25-30% volume on my laptop, and around 60-90% on my samsung galaxy ace. I was wondering if there is any way I could measure the db output of my cans when I listen in those volumes.

I do hearing testing and fit people with hearing aids for a living. 

 

There are numerous factors involved with hearing on a daily basis:

 

-Whats your age? 

-Do you have trouble hearing female voices, male voices, or both? 

-Do you miss out on conversations often?

-any problems using the telephone?

-do you communicate well in a closed rooms?

-How well do you hear with background noise? 

-Do you feel people mumble or not talk loud enough?

-Do you find the TV volume louder than before?

-Have you felt your hearing change suddenly?

-Have you felt your hearing change over the years?

-Do you have a better ear?

-Do you know anyone in your family with hearing loss?

-Do you hear any buzzing, high pitched, or other noises?

 

(Answer these questions at your discretion)

 

As you can see this is a baseline of the factors involved with hearing. If you feel that you are having hearing problems then you should have your hearing evaluated at your nearest hearing centre. If your hearing loss is untreated over time, it will get worse.

 

The website below is a link to an online hearing test.

Good luck
