'..consequence of..' is idiomatic in this context.

If you like to use 'which' then the sentence could be..

"A common disability in test pilots is hearing impairment, which resulted from sitting too close to large jet engines for long periods of time. "
--'which' is used with non-restrictive modifiers.

because 'a consequence which resulted from' is too wordy comparing to 'a consequence of'.
