Conductive hearing loss occurs when there is a problem with how sound waves are conducted from the outer ear to the inner ear. This type of hearing loss can be due to several factors, including ear infection, ear wax build-up, and damage to the eardrum or middle ear bones. Symptoms of conductive hearing loss can include difficulty hearing sounds clearly, especially in noisy environments, and muffled sounds.
