Having a hearing handicap doesn't help
I'm intimately familiar with cocktail party syndrome; to the point I usually avoid bars completely. 38% hearing loss that can't be mechanically augmented is mostly the reason. High noise environments require near total concentration on the speaker's voice and face to capture as much of their message as possible. Which means a single stream, ignoring all other side conversations. No multi-taskign communication for this fellow.
