Sound impressions of hearing loss and tinnitus

On 04, Feb 2015 | No Comments | In Tinnitus | By Sam

Here are a number of sound files which you can play to get an impression of what it is like to suffer from hearing loss and tinnitus.

By clicking on the sound files, people with normal hearing can get an impression of how music sounds for a hearing-impaired person. The first sound is at ‘normal level’ and the following sounds have been reduced in relation to the ‘normal level’.

The examples show how sound may be experienced by a person who suffers from conductive and sensorineural hearing. But it may sound differently. The way it sounds to a hearing-impaired person always depends on the type and degree of the hearing loss.

You can also hear some examples of what tinnitus can sound like. However tinnitus can sound in many different ways, and can be more or less intense. So please remember that these sounds are just some examples of what tinnitus can sound like.

The sounds you hear will always depend on the quality of your computer equipment.

You cannot use these sound files to test your own hearing. And you cannot test your own hearing on the Internet.

To test your hearing, you have to visit your family doctor or a hearing health care professional.
