The quick answer is yes. If you have to concentrate very hard on hearing, your body will put its energy into that. If the body gets no help, it will start to wear out. Your ears won’t drop off physically but the level you can hear today will not be as good in 2/5/10 years’ time. It varies.
The main side effect is exhaustion. Besides, to the ladies, wrinkles anyone? We have all seen people who screw up their faces in concentration. It’s because they cannot see or cannot hear. Look at actors. They must forever be concentrating on Directors standing at least 10 metres away, too far to lip-read.
If that’s not an advert for hearing aids, I don’t know what is. Life is hard enough without putting added pressure on yourself. When you have them, the relief is enormous. And for guys, worried about hearing-aids being seen, ninety-nine percent of people speak to your face. There is no way that you can help the other one percent.
Have a great week.
