Age related hearing problem is the most common cause of hearing loss in older people,medically it is known as presbyacusis(that is sensorineural hearing loss).And the other type of hearing loss is called conductive hearing loss.
The main cause of  presbyacusis is ageing and some other factors such as diabetes and osteoporosis.It can be caused by the damage to the inner ear nerves responsible for brain and hearing.It is not curable but it can be treated well.This is what your grandma is suffering from.

Using headphones or ear buds can cause temporary or permanent hearing changes. The louder the volume and the longer listening time,
 the greater your risks may be. For safer listening, lower the volume and limit listening time.!
