Some work: Some of them work depending on the amount of wax you have. If wax clears up it will certainly help hearing.

Yes +: Once the wax resolves, if you are still noticing a hearing loss, see an ENT for examination and hearing test.

Depends : The particular ear wax removal methods vary in effectiveness and safety. Check with with your doctor before doing treatments for this condition. Your doctor can define the problem and prescribe the proper treatemnt.
