During this year’s National Protect Your Hearing Month—observed each October—learn how to protect yourself and your loved ones from noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), and help Noisy Planet spread the word to others.
Some parents encourage their kids to protect their hearing by using volume-limiting headphones when listening to music or watching videos on smartphones, tablets, and other electronic devices. Do the safety claims for these headphones hold up?
This national public education campaign is designed to increase awareness among parents of children ages 8 to 12 about the causes and prevention of noise-induced hearing loss. With this information, parents and other adults can encourage children to adopt healthy hearing habits before and during the time that they develop listening, leisure, and working habits.
