Musician Hearing Loss
Are you a musician? If so, you run a far higher risk for hearing loss. Four times more likely to suffer noise induced hearing loss.
From 2004 to 2008 German researchers studied the health insurance records of 7 million people to determine that musicians run a higher risk of hearing loss. Given the outcome of this study, it’s more important than ever for musicians to take advantage of today’s technology to protect your hearing.
Additionally 57 percent of professionals in the music industry are more likely to suffer Tinnitus.
