Understanding hearing loss is more complex than you might imagine. Hearing loss is rarely just the loss of amplification (volume). It more commonly affects intelligibility and clarity. Hearing loss normally affects high frequencies (females or children) more drastically. You cannot simply recreate hearing loss by blocking-up your ears.
In order to simulate the different levels of hearing loss (mild, moderate, severe, profound), we have produced a video to demonstrate what a simple restaurant conversation could sound like to a hearing impaired individual.
