Human beings are born and grow up with different physical conditions and development. One can be born with the five senses which work perfectly well, but others may be born with one or more of the five senses impaired. Hearing organ is one of human senses which functions to receive information in the form of vibration like a radio or television antenna. The sounds and voices that a human hear will develop his/her verbal communication while the sound of the environment will help identify his/her existence. The hearing organ also allows human to hear natural sounds such as the singing birds, whirl of wind, sea waves and sounds produced by human cultural activities.
