Hearing loss affects about 10% of the adult population in the UK and many people over the age of 70 years have a hearing loss sufficient for them to require hearing aids. Yet, many people try hearing aids and decide that the benefit is not worth the bother; the hearing aids end up sitting in a drawer. In this talk I will describe what goes wrong when a person has a hearing loss and I will describe what hearing aids can and cannot do to compensate for the perceptual problems caused by hearing loss. Avenues for improvement will also be described.
