Because hearing loss usually occurs gradually over time, those who have it are often unaware and may be resistant to testing and diagnosis. There is no cure for hearing loss, but technology has improved even over the past five years, and new digital devices offer those with hearing loss the chance to go on with active, engaged lives.

With our Hearing Loss Simulator, you can hear as they hear. If you believe someone in your life is challenged by hearing loss, Henry Ford Audiologists are standing by to perform a comprehensive hearing exam, often the same day you call, at five convenient Metro Detroit locations.

The following group of audio files simulate what someone with permanent hearing loss is able to hear in several contexts. For each sound clip, you can listen to what it sounds like with "normal" hearing, as well as with mild and moderate hearing loss.
