Today, a staggering amount of teenagers have some form of hearing loss. It is reported that one in five teens suffers from hearing loss – which is about 30% more than they did in 1980’s and 1990’s. Many experts believe that this is due in part to increased use of headphones. Though teenagers are often a group targeted for always being “plugged in”, the lessons that can be learned about smart headphone use are important for everyone to know.
Most people don’t notice hearing loss from headphones right away because it is gradual, cumulative and doesn’t often come with obvious warning signs. Hearing tests and medical examinations are the only way to truly determine if someone suffers from hearing loss.
