T3 - Hearing and Hearing Loss Prevention

Benj Kanters, Columbia College - Chicago, IL, USA

The Hearing Conservation Seminar and HearTomorrow.Org are dedicated 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 engineers and musicians easily understand 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 tutorial is a 2-hour presentation in three sections: first, an introduction to hearing physiology; the second, noise-induced loss; and third, practicing effective and sensible hearing conservation.
