When I was a child, I often went to my grandparents’ house to play video games because my parents did not allow me. My grandparents used to leave the TV on even if there was no show on it, and sometimes, I could hear a very annoying, high-pitched sound from the TV. So, I asked my grandma, “How can you bear the TV’s noise?” She asked me back, looking puzzled, “What noise? I don’t hear a thing.”
That is the first time I realize what I and others hear may not be the same, and I believe similar things have also happened to you.
The human hearing range is 20~20000 Hz, but it deteriorates as people age. The degeneration often starts with high frequencies, meaning you lose the ability to hear high-pitched sounds gradually when you get old.

Causes for Hearing Loss
Apart from aging factors, hearing loss can occur due to many reasons, such as:
Some genes are related to deafness and the tendency to hearing loss.
Many diseases and infections can lead to hearing loss, especially those that damage the ears and hearing-related nerves.
If your ears, especially the inside structure, get hurt, you may suffer from hearing loss or deafness.
Explosions and noises
Constant exposure to noises or loud sounds can significantly impair your hearing, but people often ignore it because the harm may take a long time to manifest.
4 Ways to Protect Your Hearing
Don’t dig out your earwax.
Never dig out the earwax with a paper clip, hairpin, or other “handy” tool. You may push the wax further into your ear and cause serious damage to the lining of your ear canal or eardrum. You may clean your outer ear gently with a cotton swab or curet. If earwax gets built up in your ear, ask a doctor to help you remove it.
Do not wear headphones for a long time.
Don’t wear your headphones for more than 2 hours a day. When answering the phone, keep a certain distance between the ear and the phone, and the volume should be moderate. You should also alternate between your ears if the call takes a long time.
Prevent water from entering the ear.
When water gets trapped in the ear, it can induce acute otitis externa and may result in hearing loss if not treated in time. Once water enters the external canal, you can tilt your head to one side to let the water flow out and gently wipe it with a cotton swab.
Massage your earlobe regularly.
Massage the earlobes and the surrounding area can increase the blood circulation of the inner ear and protect your hearing. It is recommended to massage your ears once in the morning and evening for 5-10 minutes each time.
