Do you work in a noisy place, use headphones regularly, or visit places with loud music? There are many ways to make listening safe, and with over a billion young people at risk of avoidable hearing loss due to recreational sounds (Airpods, earbuds, concerts, loud music, bars), hearing loss is a real concern for people of all ages. 1 in 2 young people are at risk of hearing loss due to unsafe listening.
The holiday season is officially upon us, and all the joyous festivities and family gatherings that come with it! But if you are suffering from hearing loss, big family get-togethers can present a unique set of obstacles.
