Hear­ing pro­tec­tion com­pany spear­heads cam­paign to avoid tin­ni­tus

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

Here at Rhythm, we be­lieve that you sim­ply must pro­tect your hear­ing. That’s why we were de­lighted to see this con­di­tion recog­nised with the re­cent Na­tional Tin­ni­tus Week. We were also pleased to see brands such as Alpine Hear­ing Pro­tec­tion get on board and stress the im­por­tance of mu­si­cians safe­guard­ing their health.

Alpine teamed up with Ac­tion on Hear­ing Loss as part of a na­tional cam­paign to raise aware­ness over tin­ni­tus. Whilst it is eas­ily pre­vented with cor­rect hear­ing pro­tec­tion, tin­ni­tus is in­cur­able and, ac­cord­ing to the World Health Or­gan­i­sa­tion, a whop­ping one tril­lion peo­ple aged be­tween 12 and 35 years old around the globe are at risk of per­ma­nent hear­ing loss due to recre­ational noise, such as mu­sic.

Drum­mers, such as re­cent Rhythm cover star Joey Jordi­son have pre­vi­ously spo­ken out about the im­pact tin­ni­tus can have, and so there re­ally is no ex­cuse for us drum­mers when it comes to know­ing the risks, and en­sur­ing that we are pro­tected.
