Didn't see it and haven't heard anything about hearing loss, at least not permanent loss, due to lifting...look at it this way, Arnie would be stone deaf etc, if that were the case.
You may get temporary deafness, literally momentary, from holding the breath when lifting but that also occurs when holding the breath (for time) and not lifting; but it dissipates immediately.
