What is high-frequency hearing loss? How do I know if I have it?

High-frequency hearing loss means you have difficulty hearing high-pitched sounds such as birds chirping and children’s voices. Some important parts of speech are high-pitched, so it becomes more difficult to understand speech when you have high-frequency hearing loss. This is the most common type of hearing loss. An audiologist can help you know if you have high-frequency hearing loss, and you can test yourself with a hearing test app such as Hearing Test and Mimi Hearing Test
