The ear is basically a three-part sound processor. Sound enters the pinna, or outer ear, is focused into the ear canal and eardrum. This is the first part of the ear structure. Next, the middle ear contains the structures commonly called the hammer, anvil and stapes. The circular structures regulate your balance, but the hearing part of these tiny bones turns sound waves into vibrations that are sent to the inner ear. This turns vibration into electronic signals that are sent through the auditory nerve to the brain for processing.More on Hearing – How the Ear Works

There are many reasons for hearing loss, but they fall into three basic categories, including:
Sensorineural: When sound enters the ear canal and the eardrum, it is converted from vibration to electronic signal by nerves and sensors. When the sensors are not working correctly, the result is sensorineural hearing loss.
Conductive: When sound enters the ear canal and eardrum but cannot be transferred to the middle or inner ear because the vibrating structures are not working correctly, the result in conductive hearing loss.
Mixed: A combination of sensorineural and conductive hearing loss, requiring the treatment of a hearing professional.More on Types of Hearing Loss
