“As a musician, the lot of those suffering from tinnitus is particularly close to my heart. It’s hard to imagine what living with a constant, unwanted and tiring noise means. The disease permanently changes the lives of those affected and its consequences are often underestimated.

It leads to isolation and despair. Educating people about tinnitus and educating young people about “safe hearing” are indispensable tasks, especially today when we listen to music through headphones – without a thought to the stress we’re putting our sensitive ears through.”
