    Plan B and Chris Martin Back Noise Induced Hearing Loss Campaign

     

    Tinnitus and Noise Induced Hearing Loss have been in the news as rapper and actor Plan B and Coldplay singer Chris Martin are backing an Action On Hearing Loss campaign for concert and club goers to wear earplugs. Many people are unaware than loud music in clubs is enough to permanently damage hearing and that wearing earplugs is enough to prevent this happening.

     

     

    Tinnitus is associated with noise-induced hearing loss and is often described as a high pitched ringing, buzzing, whistle or hum; some affected musicians are able to describe the note of their tinnitus. Treatments are available, including masking the sound with white noise and counseling to deal with stress and depression associated with the condition.

     

     

     

    Plan B and Chris Martin are both tinnitus sufferers as a result of exposure to loud music and they recommend wearing ear plugs to prevent noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus.
