Single Sided Deafness

What is Single Sided Deafness?

Single sided deafness (SSD) is the loss of hearing in one side. It is a common problem that can often be caused by viral infections, Meniere's disease or head and ear injuries. Fortunately, there are specific products like the CROS (Contralateral Routing of Signals) system that can help reduce SSD's impact on your life.

There are many products available for SSD which allow you to hear from both sides again with clarity. The CROS system picks up sounds and voices from the bad ear and wirelessly sends them over to the good ear. At Bay Audiology we suggest that you book a hearing check to determine the level of loss in either side of your ears. Our expert clinicians can then suggest a solution that will suit your specific needs.
