The increase in volume above the usual sound levels necessary before the listeners can detect it determines the severity of hearing loss. There are three types of hearing loss: Conductive, Sensorineural and Mixed hearing loss. The hearing losses according to the severity are classified into four types: Mild, Moderate, Severe and Profound hearing loss.
