Central Hearing & Ageing

Central Hearing & Ageing

Central Hearing is subject to a natural ageing process which is independent of your actual peripheral hearing ability.

As we age certain parts of our hearing decline gradually and unnoticed. Prolonged reduced input from the ears accelerates the deterioration of central hearing.

Only once we have problems understand speech do most people realize that they have a hearing problem. By that time Central Hearing has been deprived of full input for years if not decades. This is a very gradual process and manifests itself at first in the reduced ability to understand clearly in background noise and needing to concentrate more and more to understand language.
