Here are some more tips and information to help protect your hearing... to ensure you keep enjoying the music for many years to come.

Give your ears a rest!

Take a 5 minute break for every hour you are listening to music on your music device or at a night club, to allow your ears to recover.

Use headphones –

not earphones! People who use earphones generally are pummelling their ears with louder sound levels, partly because of the design of earphones, and partly in an effort to drown out background noise.

Don’t stand close to speakers in clubs, pubs or at concerts.

Sound intensity increases greatly close to the sound source.

Use noise-cancelling headphones.

If you tend to up the volume in noisy streets, use noise-cancelling or sound-isolating
headphones that reduce background noise.

Wear ear protection at gigs and concerts.

Sound levels at gigs and concerts can be particularly loud. Wear noise reducing ear plugs
designed for use at concerts and gigs which reduce the volume but not the quality of sound.

Make listening Safe!
