High Frequency Hearing Test
You’ve likely experienced older adults with hearing aids struggling to hear what you’re saying to them before. So you probably feel like hearing loss might have something to do with age, right?
But have you ever considered which types of sounds they find the hardest to hear? Since sounds are made of waves which vibrate at different frequencies, some are higher pitched than others. Consequently, certain types of sounds are harder to hear! Consider dog whistles. People can’t hear them, but dogs can. Why? Because dogs’ ears pick up that higher frequency much better than human ears can.
