Amplified Telephones for Severe Hearing Loss

What Is Severe Hearing Loss?

There are different degrees of hearing loss. Normal hearing is in the range of 0 to 20 decibels, which enables you to make out sounds as faint as human breathing. Mild hearing loss ranges from 21 to 40 decibels, and moderate hearing loss is classified as ranging from 41 to 55 decibels.

Moderately severe to severe hearing loss ranges from 56 to as far as 90 decibels. To compare, 50dB is the volume of a quiet suburb or a conversation at home, while 90dB is as loud as a Boeing 737 at 6000 feet. You are suffering from severe hearing loss if you:

  • Have difficulty keeping up with conversations
  • Can't hear someone behind you speaking
  • Have trouble hearing people on the phone
  • Listen to the television or car radio at a very loud volume
  • Don't hear the alarm clock
