Around the World in Sound

Travel around the world in sound. Sound helps us to make sense of the world around us, and certain sounds can trigger memories. A recent survey by Amplifon, the worldwide dedicated hearing specialist found that two thirds of Brits say sounds evoke memories of places they have visited.

Ear Care Day - Tuesday March 3rd

This year, Tuesday March 3rd is International Ear Care Day. The focus of 2015's awareness day will be on making the act of listening safe, specifically targeting preventable sound damage. 

The event will target young adults and teenagers in the hope to create awareness of how using MP3 players and other music devices can be potentially dangerous to their hearing.

The day encourages people to turn down the volume of their devices, making them aware of the everyday activities that could actually be damaging their hearing. With the rise in popularity of nightclubs, portable music devices and smartphones, recent statistics show that one in five teenagers now experience some level of hearing loss.

According to the World Health Organization, noisy entertainment is responsible for putting the hearing of over one billion teens and young adults around the world in danger of being damaged. In the UK, hearing loss affects around 10 million people, and it can be a life-changing problem. Hearing damage can also lead to other concerns, including anxiety, loneliness and sometimes depression.                        

That's why this Tuesday March 3rd, we're encouraging people to take better care of their hearing, and make note of how loud is too loud. You can take a look at our sound damage guide here, and find out how you can protect your ears from noise-induced hearing loss.´╗┐
