Mild Hearing Loss

If you have mild hearing loss, the most difficult sounds of speech – consonant sounds like “f” and “th” or “k” and “p” – can be lost during a conversation. That means it will be difficult for you to clearly distinguish between words. For example, the word “death” may sound like “deaf.” Throw in some poor room acoustics, background noise that is distracting or a soft-spoken conversation partner, and even a mild hearing loss can pose major challenges.
