Today Show Brings Attention to Teens and Hearing Loss

Jun 7 2016

A segment on the Today show points out the dangers teens face when listening to loud music through earbuds. The video and accompanying article references a study published in the journal Scientific Reports. According to the study of 170 students ages 11 to 17, 25% already experience some level of tinnitus, and students also showed a heightened sensitivity to loud sounds, caused by what they refer to as “risky listening habits,” the biggest culprit being listening to loud music either through headphones, loud parties, clubs and concerts.
