In reality, the term "mixed hearing loss" describes situations in which both conductive hearing loss and sensorineural hearing loss are present.
Conductive hearing loss is brought on by outer or middle ear problems as the middle ear and ear drum do not effectively conduct sound.

Hearing aid batteries typically last between 3 and 22 days, depending on the hearing aid, the capacity of the battery, and the quantity of use.
Rechargeable hearing aids maintain your active lifestyle without worrying about the battery running out since charging is quick and dependable.
