It is not uncommon to lose some of the ability to hear, especially high-pitched tones of speech, as a sign of age-related hearing impairment. The official term is presbycusis, and this is one of the most common conditions of older adults. It can have a major effect on quality of life, as it affects social interactions. It affects about 31% of adults over age 65 and 75% over age 85.

The result is social isolation, as people are often unaware of happenings around them or conversations. Certain high-pitched consonants, such as s or f, are more difficult to hear, often causing word confusion.
