Use of and Attitudes Towards Hearing Protection in the Sound and Music Industries: Results of a Pilot Survey

Document Thumbnail

Music-induced hearing loss (MIHL) is increasingly well-recognised as a problem, not just for audiences and musicians but also, though less well-reported, for sound engineers and other production professionals. Whilst hearing protection technology is becoming increasingly effective, there remain concerns amongst professionals that their ability to perform their job will inevitably be affected by any form of protection. This paper reports the results of a pilot survey of 230 workers and students in the sound and music industries, examining attitudes towards hearing risk and protection and patterns of HP use.
