Conductive Hearing Loss:  Problems or obstructions in the outer or middle ear that prevent sound from being conducted properly are classified as a conductive hearing loss.  Possible causes of this can include excessive earwax in the ear canal, fluid behind the eardrum, and perforated eardrums.  Conductive hearing losses are usually mild or moderate in degree and can often be treated medically or surgically

 

Sensorineural Hearing Loss:  Problems arising from damage or disease of the inner ear, or the nerve pathways to the brain, are classified as sensorineural hearing loss.  Possible causes of this can include aging, noise exposure, illness and heredity.  Most of the time, sensorineural hearing loss is permanent and cannot be surgically corrected.

 

Mixed Hearing Loss:  In some cases, there may be a conductive hearing loss combined with a sensorineural hearing loss.  This is classifed as a mixed hearing loss combined with a sensorineural hearing loss.  This is classifed as a mixed hearing loss.
