A routine brain MRI with attention to the internal auditory meatus should be requested in acute cases where no cause is detected and idiopathic origin is assumed. These individuals are usually started on oral corticosteroids with a prednisone dose of 1 mg/kg/day (max 60 mg/day) for seven days and then decreased during the following week.

Hearing aids, of which there are many sorts, are the basis of treatment in chronic situations. Even in mild or severe cases of presbycusis, hearing aids are beneficial to the majority of patients. [19] There is no way to restore former hearing thresholds, and due to psychosocial comorbidities, audiological rehabilitation support is especially necessary in these patients.

The most prevalent equipment for treating hearing loss are traditional behind-the-ear air conduction hearing aids.

Hearing aids with bilateral microphones and contralateral signal routing (BiCROS) are similar, but a microphone also helps the better hearing ear on the same side.
