Charity issues top tips on MP3 players

20/08/08
 

Deafness Research UK has published its top tips for the safe use of MP3 players, following research by the charity that shows too many people are putting their hearing at risk by listening to MP3 players too loudly for too long.

Vivienne Michael, CEO for Deafness Research UK, said: "Our research shows that too many people are putting their hearing at risk by listening to their MP3 player too loudly and for too long.

"There are simple ways to minimise the likelihood of damage and reduce the risk of hearing problems in later life. Our tips apply to the whole population but we are especially worried about young people, who are generally the heaviest users of MP3s and other mobile music devices - and often the most at risk because they don't understand the dangers."
