To mark Tinnitus Awareness Week (3-9 February) charity Action on Hearing Loss has conducted a new survey.
The findings of the poll reveal that almost 70% of people have been left with ringing in their ears or dulled hearing after a night out.
Forty eight percent listen to music for up to a third of their waking day and worryingly 33% would override the safe level warning on their personal music player to listen to loud music.
“Listening to loud music for a long time can trigger tinnitus and is an indication of damaged hearing,” says Paul Breckell, Chief Executive of Action on Hearing Loss.
Paul Oakenfold, DJ and producer, who is helping to publicise Tinnitus Awareness Week commented: “I feel passionately about listening to music safely and urge music lovers to wear ear defenders to gigs and avoid dangerously high volumes on personal music players. Getting decent noise-cancelling headphones also cuts down the risk of damaging your ears and suffering tinnitus caused by over exposure to loud music. No one wants that! So protect your ears whilst loving your tunes!”

The January lull has ended and there is some fantastic new music around.
