I had a good retriever, lived to age 14, hunted into his 12th, and lost a lot of his hearing. Think about how often that shot charge is going over their head out in front of the muzzle. Of course he always was a close working dog too- stayed in easy range.
He never lost his sense of smell. I never saw his hearing loss as a big problem.
