General Hearing Loss Information

There are two different types of hearing impairments, conductive hearing loss and sensorineural hearing loss. A third type is a combination of the two, called a mixed hearing loss. Hearing impairments are categorized by their type – conductive, sensorineural or both, by their severity, and by the age of onset. Furthermore, a hearing impairment may exist in only one ear (unilateral) or in both ears (bilateral).
