As you get older, usually by the time you’re fifty, the tiny hair cells in the cochlea part of the inner ear are damaged and this causes a permanent hearing loss, particularly in the high frequencies. This is called Presbycusis.

Do you think you might have a hearing loss? Read on to see if you can relate to any of the common signs people face with age related hearing loss.

Characteristics of age related hearing loss:

Difficulty on the phone

With a hearing loss you will rely on facial expressions and some lip-reading, this may cause a problem on the phone.

Difficulty with the TV

With the addition of accents and background music, watching the TV can be difficult, especially if you have a sight problem too.

Difficulty understanding speech

It is quite common to miss the beginnings and ends of sentences and words and find it particularly difficult in background noise.

Difficulty hearing birds

Hearing loss with age usually affects the high frequencies making it difficult to hear bird song.

Difficulty hearing alarms

With a high frequency hearing loss, you may struggle to hear your alarm ringing.

TESTIMONIALS

Here are some of our customer testimonials...

My consultation and resulting micro suction procedure in both ears was both a revelation and a huge relief! I had a camera in each ear which meant I was able to see (via laptop) the inside of my ears and where the wax build up was, so by the time the procedure began I knew exactly what was about to happen. In my case it wasn’t just a question of wax in my ears but the shape of my ear canals and the discrepancy between thickness of my ear drums! Most enlightening and professional.. I will certainly be keeping on top of my ear health now! Thank you Hafiza!

Y. Ellis

Music producer and audio engineer

I was reviewed by Hafiza from Pinnaclear in a thorough, excellent and professional manner. The procedure I needed was microsuctioning which wax explained to me in a detailed and reassuring way and the action itself felt gentle and tolerable. Not used to being in the 'patient role' the experience overall was positive and I would be happy to return and recommend Pinnaclear to others-thank you Hafiza!
