At some point, we are all exposed to loud noises. Exposure to these loud noises can’t always be avoided, but we can do things to prevent damage to our ears. Recently, there has been an increase in hearing loss among musicians and among those who listen to their mp3 players at high volumes. Did you know you can pick up a FREE pair of earplugs at The Well?
