Will the iPod Generation Soon Be Deaf?

The iPod has become a cultural icon, and an estimated 11 million were purchased during the first quarter of 2009 alone. Lawsuits, rumors, and accusations are flying about the role of iPods in the current epidemic of noise-induced hearing losses, especially among young people. Sure, loud sound must be able to damage ears, but how much sound is required? Can iPods or other personal stereo systems cause deafness? What can you do to save your ears?


Dr. Billy Martin, director of the Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) Tinnitus Clinic, is a world-renowned hearing scientist who deals with all kinds of noise that affect our community. He leads a team of Portland area scientists, educators, clinicians, public health experts, and others in the study of noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus prevention. Billy will talk about the dangerous noises in our every day life—what they are, what damage they cause, and how to protect yourself...even from iPods.
