Being able to hear well is an important part of living an active and full life. It allows us to connect with the world around us, interact with our loved ones, enjoy the sounds of TV, movies and music, and stay aware of any warning sounds to keep us safe, such as fire alarms or approaching traffic.
1.1 billion people are estimated to be at risk of noise induced hearing loss around the world1 and 70% of people exposed to loud noise never or seldomly wear hearing protection.
Using hearing protection is crucial for preventing hearing loss, and also protecting us from noise that can lead to stress and poor concentration and more serious health issues such as cardiovascular disease and tinnitus.
