The MRC is inviting everyone with ears to take a survey on loud music and hearing loss. More at National survey looks at link between loud music and hearing loss

Hearing damage is irreversible
We [Action on Hearing Loss: RNID] have long campaigned on the dangers of loud music, and the importance of protecting and, in turn, prolonging your hearing. Our Chief Executive, Paul Breckell, said, “Damage to your hearing is irreversible – and, contrary to popular opinion, hearing loss is not a condition that only older people need to concern themselves with. With many nightclubs and concerts measuring 20 or 30 decibels above the safe noise level, more and more young people are likely to start feeling the effects of their music-loving, gig-going habits. The MRC’s public experiment is such a vital piece of work to offer a robust understanding of and insight into how people stave off early loss of their hearing.

Take the survey!

Researchers are calling on as many people as possible to get involved by completing the short survey about their listening habits and completing a quick hearing check. To get involved, please visit www.100yearsofamplifiedmusic.org
