BBC News Hearing Damage

See Dr Greg Nassar (Clinical Services Manager-North West Hearing) being interviewed on BBC News after the landmark High Court judgement on hearing damage from loud music.

Anyone exposed to significant noise is prone to hearing loss, tinnitus, loudness discomfort or intolerance, and hyperacusis – where sounds that were once tolerable become intolerable.

This judgement will have implications about the risk of hearing damage for musicians and the leisure industry all over the country.

Dr Nassar talks about custom-made ear plugs and demonstrates the damaging levels of noise exposure in the second BBC News interview below.
