  Neurological: Hearing damage caused by lesions in the auditory nerve or brain auditory center, including congenital, senile, and drug-induced deafness.

  Mixed: both, such as chronic suppurative otitis media, otosclerosis.

  Mild26-40dB), hearing is a little difficult, usually without wearing a hearing aid;

  Moderate41-55dB), hearing impairment is obvious, should be aided;

  Moderate to severe (56-70), moderately difficult to listen to, should be heard;
