Surah Al Baqarah ayat 6-7

6. As to those who reject Faith, it is the same to them whether thou warn them or do not warn them; they will not believe.
7. God hath set a seal on their hearts and on their hearing, and on their eyes is a veil; great is the penalty they (incur).

All those who refuse to accept the faith and believe in the religion of Allah and His prophets, Allah has sealed their hearts and ears and has placed a veil over their eyes. And such people (Kaafir) will face serious consequences.  Surah Nahal ayat 106-108 states that these are the people who:
1. Give priority to this temporary world as opposed to the Hereafter
2. They are oblivious and heedless to the truth.

An important point to be mentioned here is that Allah states that He has sealed the ears and eyes of such disbelievers but their eyes are not YET sealed rather the eyes have been covered by a veil. this implies that the disbelievers still have a chance to repent and seek guidance. Ears and heart perform an involuntary function but eyes, we can control what we want to see and the sights we want to turn away from. It is thus in the hands of such disbelievers to open their eyes to the Truth and accept the Faith before its too late.
