Sensorineural hearing loss occurs when individuals experience problems in their inner ear or their auditory nerve that delivers sound to the brain. Sensorineural hearing loss is generally treatable with hearing aids or cochlear implants. Conductive hearing loss implies that sound cannot travel through the outer and middle ear and therefore does not even reach the inner ear, due to an obstruction or damage. Conductive hearing loss is usually treated by surgery depending on the extent of damage or obstruction. With conductive hearing loss individuals may struggle to hear soft sounds and loud noises are muffled.
