Bizarre Ear Condition Makes Woman Unable to Hear Men's Voices

Bizarre Ear Condition Makes Woman Unable to Hear Men's Voices

Imagine the opposite scenario to What Women Want.

This isn't a selective hearing joke - Chen, from Xiamen in China, woke up one day and she was unable to hear her boyfriend when he spoke - or any men, as it turned out.

A rare ear condition has left a woman only able to hear women's voices.

According to Choudhary, any enquiry that be conducted would need to be done as per the BCCI constitution. However, Rai told PTI that he was not convinced with Pandya's explanation.

The next morning, an ear, nose and throat specialist at Qianpu Hospital told Ms. Chen that she had a form of low-frequency hearing loss known as reverse-slope hearing loss.

Reverse-slope hearing loss caused a Chinese woman to only hear female voices. The patient was a man.

Loss of hearing of lower-pitched sounds (which is what Chen experienced) is also less common because the bass-processing portion of the cochlea - a snail-shaped structure deep in the inner ear - is very well protected, said Jackie Clark, a clinical professor with the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas, who also wasn't involved with Chen's case.

Dramatic rescue of injured skier in French Alps
Tauziet dislocated his knee at high elevation, with some 1,200 feet of icy terrain between his ski crew and any level ground. A rope is dropped down from the helicopter to bring two rescue workers, who had been tending to Bruno's leg, back up.

Those with the condition typically have trouble hearing low-frequency sounds. According to Thigpen Hearing Center, many people with this condition don't even realize they have it.

What do you think about this odd form of hearing loss? It affects an estimated 3,000 people in the US and Canada - for every 12,000 people with hearing loss, only one individual has RSHL, the audiology clinic reported. "Doctors will call it hearing loss, I call it evolution", wrote one person on Twitter. Aka a difficulty in identifying high frequency. She expects Chen to experience a full recovery. Because of the way it is shaped on an audiogram - a diagonal slope from the top left-hand corner to the bottom right-hand corner - it gets its name, ski-slope.

This kind of low frequency hearing loss is said to be caused by a number of different things such as Wolfram Syndrome 1, Meniere's disease, Mondini dysplasi and sudden hearing loss. The night before she was unable to hear her boyfriend's voice, Chen also said she felt nauseous and had ringing in her ears.
