T2 - The Hearing Conservation Seminar

Benjamin Kanters, Columbia College Chicago - Chicago, IL, USA

The Hearing Conservation seminar is a new approach to promoting awareness of hearing loss and conservation. This program is specifically targeted to students and professionals in the audio and music industries. Experience has shown that this group of practitioners easily understands the concepts of hearing physiology as many of the principles and theories are the same as those governing audio and acoustics. Moreover, these people are quick to understand the importance of developing their own safe listening habits, as well as being concerned for the hearing health of their clients and the music-listening public. The seminar is a 2-hour presentation in three units: first, an introduction to hearing physiology, the second, noise-induced loss, and third, practicing effective and sensible hearing conservation.

Presented on behalf of the AES Technical Committee on Hearing and Hearing Loss Prevention.
