Tinnitus Week 2018: Alpine Hearing Protection teams up with Action on Hearing Loss to raise awareness about hearing damage

Tinnitus Week kicked off on the 5th of February, aimed at drawing attention to the risks of hearing damage.

The condition affects approximately 1 in 10 of the population, and musicians and music fans can suffer permanent hearing damage after just five minutes at the average concert, festival or club. By the time you’ve notice, it’s already too late.

“Globally, 1 trillion people between the ages of 12 and 35 are at risk of permanent hearing loss due to exposure to loud recreational noise,” said the World Health Organization.

A number of MI and hearing protection companies are doing their part to raise awareness about the condition, including Alpine Hearing Protection, which has teamed up with Action on Hearing Loss.

During the national campaign, Action on Hearing Loss will be informing people of the importance of high quality hearing protection and will be recommending Alpine earplugs through its website, social media and magazine articles.

Action on Hearing Loss is the largest UK charity, working with over 11 million people who are confronting hearing problems in the United Kingdom.

Tinnitus can occur at any age; even young children can suffer from permanent ringing in their ear. This is why Alpine offers a wide range of product for adults, children, and infants.

Earlier this week, Alpine commented on the recent study that found that some parts of the London Underground could be damaging peoples’ hearing. Decibel levels higher than 105 have been recorded, with some sections of the tube louder than a rock concert.

Distributed by Active Music, Alpine is the only brand with CE certification across all ranges.
