Hearing Safety


The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association sponsors the Listen To Your Buds public education campaign which emphasizes using personal audio technology safely. With so many different electronic devices within reach, 84% of all parents polled say that they are concerned about their children’s hearing. ASHA, therefore, educates parents, teachers, and children about the damaging effects that loud noise can cause and, in conjunction with other organizations, takes preventive measures to reduce noise-induced hearing loss.
