Conductive
• If your hearing loss is conductive in nature, there is some damage or issue in your outer or middle ear. This means that the issue lies in the visible portion of your ear, outer ear canal, ear drum, the space just behind your ear drum, or a combination of these locations.
• Loudness will be an issue for persons with this kind of loss. Sounds may appear muffled or softer than typical. They may complain that their ears feel stopped up or plugged.
Sensorineural
• If your hearing loss is sensorineural in nature, there is some damage or issue in your inner ear, hearing nerve, or a combination of the two.
• Understanding will be an issue for persons with this kind of loss. They may complain that everyone else mumbles, no one speaks clearly, or that everyone talks too fast. They may note that they "hear", but just don't understand what you said.
Mixed
• Mixed hearing loss implies a combination of both conductive and sensorineural components with damage occurring in both the outer/middle ear and the inner ear/hearing nerve.
• Both loudness and understanding will be an issue for persons with this kind of loss. They may experience a combination of symptoms of the other two previous categories.
