Sensorineural hearing loss
The inside ear is made up of the cochlea and its nerve which transmits sounds to the brain. Inside the cochlea are tiny hair cells which can get damaged. This damage can be caused by noise, disease, aging, etc., and can result in sensorineural hearing loss. It is a common issue among seniors and nearly everyone will experience to some degree.
