Thats called a Carhart Notch in the aid industry, and its the one defect 
they can't do a lot for.  Its caused by loud noises, like sitting at a 
shooting bench on my place in the black hills in the 60's and wearing 
out the 1st 3 barrels in an Ackley-06 in a P17 action without benefit of 
earmuffs. With one tree about 4 feet and left of the muzzle, and another 
about 7 feet off to the right.  Back blast off those 2 trees was 
substantial.  And the last time they tested me, 20 years back I was 
rated as at least 140db down at 4 kilohertz.  They turned it up and up 
until they thought they'd burn up the phones, but all I could hear was 
the pink noise in the background. But I'm only down 10-15 db at the 
lower freqs and down about 20 from 8 kilo's to around 18 kilo's. So my 
hearing is usable quite a bit of the time yet without aids.
