    Typical hearing loss. You lose the ability to hear higher tones. If he wants to pass and hear, something will be in his ear, one way or the other. A simple audiometric booth test will show the exact problem. Some places have used aids as people upgrade.

    It may be quite simply ears plugged by wax and skin. Get them checked and cleaned by a doctor. You might be amazed by what they pull out.
    My wife uses hearing aids but every few months the Dr has to clean her ears, I always know when it’s time.
    Start with a good exam, then make a plan.

    You can clean your own ears. Mix hydrogen peroxide with water and let it sit about 30 seconds then rinse.

    If you use the peroxide it won't become impacted. There is no way in a few months it can get this way. Ever heard of Q-tips? I wash mine in the shower regularly. If it appears there is a buildup I would go to the doctor. Only had to one time when I was lax in keeping them clean.

    I yield to the truck driving doctor. The TA’s have been closed so I can’t get help from the counter of knowledge

    It's your body, but just saying I would at least make an effort. Suit yourself.
