-If you're like most people, the only hearing loss you've experienced is a conductive loss; one found when catching a cold. Hearing Aids are good solutions for conductive ​losss, but they do little to correct a sensorineural loss, especially for a child, or anyone adapting to a recent decline in hearing.+If you're like most people, the only hearing loss you've experienced is a conductive loss; one found when catching a cold.

 Hearing aids increase the volume of sound, but can do little to improve clarity. Hearing through a hearing aid is best-described as tuning a radio slightly off-station,​ allowing static, and then increasing the volume. Just as with a hearing aid, as the radio plays louder, the static and noise worsen. Hearing aids increase the volume of sound, but can do little to improve clarity.

 You should have been able to easily read the word in the center. This is how a hearing aid works for a conductive hearing loss: once sound is loud enough (bigger) it can be understood. You should have been able to easily read the word in the center.

 Could you read the word? This second image is an illustration of a sensorineural loss. Even though the hearing aid amplifies sound, it cannot not fill or correct the missing or distorted parts. How much of the word is missing is be affected by the condition of the inner ear, auditory fatigue, listening experiences,​ prior exposure to the word, condition of the earmold, condition of the hearing aid, and general background noise. Could you read the word?
