Hearing Protection – Musicians Listen Up!

We all agree certain things – like rock concerts, jack hammers and motorcycles – are loud and could damage our hearing, but we may not realize that listening to music or podcasts with our earbuds is causing any damage, but it’s very possible that repeated exposure to what we think isn’t very loud, is actually causing damage to our ears.
