5 Sounds to Hear
Hearing these 5 sounds can provide a clue about your hearing. Many don’t realize you can begin to lose hearing in early adulthood! There are many reasons and it begins very subtly. It begins with missing soft high-frequency sounds that you don’t really even pay attention to.
Hearing relies upon healthy “hair cells” to send sound energy to the brain. Some of these “hair cells” are damaged even at an early age. They are responsible for the soft, higher frequency sounds we forget about. But – they are important for keeping speech clear!
Here are some of the sounds that people will miss if their hearing range is reduced. Hearing these 5 sounds is an important clue – check it out!
- Rice Krispies: Can you still hear the “Snap, Crackle, Pop”?
- Ticking Clock: How far away can you hear it ?
- Purring Cat: Hear it or feel it?
- Car Turn Signal: Do you mistakenly leave it on?
- Water Dripping: Can you hear it from another room?
Although reduced hearing starts out as a minor annoyance, it can turn into a significant problem over the course of a few years.
