Muffled Hearing

What is muffled hearing?

Muffled hearing is when you feel like you have your hands over your ears, but there is no obvious obstruction to your hearing. The onset of muffled hearing can be a gradual process or happen suddenly. There are several conditions that cause muffled hearing from simple build up of ear wax or ear infection.

What treatment is available?

The treatment for muffled hearing will depend on the underlying cause of the hearing loss. If you think you have muffled hearing you should visit your GP or Hearing Aid Audiologist. They can rule out a number of conditions and start you on the journey to better hearing.
