“I believe education about tinnitus and protecting our hearing is important, after all, we want to protect and preserve our hearing. The condition can strike overnight without warning. You have to listen to your own intuition about unsafe volumes. Research has shown that higher volume levels that make us feel comfortable are less harmful than those that disturb us. The latter should be avoided at all costs and we should be mindful and careful with the pleasant sounds.

People who are exposed to high volumes for numerous hours a day for work-related reasons should make sure they also spend many hours in quiet so their ears can recover.”
