Men are nearly three times more likely to develop hearing loss than women. Hearing loss in men is more common because men tend to be the ones who work in noisiest environments. Men tend to have higher rates of hearing loss than women of the same age. However, this has more to do with lifestyle factors than with any biological reasoning.
In general, men tend to work in certain fields and to pursue hobbies that expose them to louder noises, putting them at greater risk of losing their hearing. Historically, these industries have employed far more men than women, and many more men have experienced hearing loss due to exposure to noise at work.
