The AESTC on Hearing and Hearing Loss Prevention was established in 2005 with five initial goals focused on informing the membership as to important aspects of the hearing process and issues related to hearing loss, so as to promote engineering based solutions to improve hearing and reduce hearing loss. Its aims include the following: raising AES member awareness of the normal and abnormal functions of the hearing process; raising AES member awareness of the risk and consequences of hearing loss resulting from excessive sound exposure; coordinating and providing technical guidance for the AES-supported hearing testing and consultation programs at U.S. and European conventions; facilitating the maintenance and refinement of a database of audiometric test results and exposure information on AES members; forging a cooperative union between AES members, audio equipment manufacturers, hearing instrument manufacturers, and the hearing conservation community for purposes of developing strategies, technologies, and tools to reduce and prevent hearing loss.
