Document Thumbnail

Protection against hearing impairment is as well an individual as a general community matter. Regulations for offices and factories exist since longtime. Proposals for similar protective means for the leisure range resulted in extreme contradictory arguments. The contribution is dealing with an European attempt to find a compromise between the natural wish for unlimited individual acoustic fun and fundamental consequences of living within a community offering social health care. Details of EN 50332 and consequences for technical details of portable audio equipment are presented with reference to the product safety directive.
