get ready for Keep the Sound!

The Keep the Sound Campaign aims to raise awareness of the dangers to our hearing of exposure to loud music and environmental noise, and to encourage safer music listening habits. It is aimed primarily at young people aged 15-35, but everyone needs to take care of their hearing! Our unique soundheads give every participant a decibel reading of their normal music listening habits.

The World Health Organisation has also warned of the dangers to hearing and general health of exposure to loud music and sounds. Half of all hearing loss is preventable, while hearing loss has been associated with an increased risk of dementia and cognitive decline.

Sally Harvest, the coordinator of the Keep the Sound campaign says ‘We continue to find a high number of young people listening at dangerous sound levels, and an even higher number who report temporary ringing or tinnitus in their ears. This is a clear sign that some damage to hearing is being caused.’

Our Keep the Sound Campaign does not aim to stop young people enjoying music: on the contrary, we want people to continue to enjoy listening to music safely! To learn more about safe listening and ways to protect your hearing, why not check out the Keep the Sound website www.keepthesound.ie and to keep up with the news, like our Facebook page facebook.com/keepthesound
