Protect the sounds you love

Sound is powerful. Just think how it feels when you crank up your favourite song, or the roar of the crowd as your team scores. We want you to keep enjoying that feeling for as long as possible – which means knowing how to enjoy your favourite sounds safely.

You can think of hearing protection a bit like sun protection.

Noise can harm your hearing in the short term – just like you can get sunburnt after being out in the sun for a few hours. Just like your skin recovers from the short term effects of sunburn (redness and soreness), your ears can also recover from the short term effects of noise (ringing and dullness) – but as we know sunburn can cause lasting damage, so too can noise.

How to listen to music safely

Music is a powerful thing. Play a song and suddenly you realise you’re not the only one who’s ever felt that way.
