We know our culture LOVES to feel the bass and listen to loud music at shows and festivals. And we LOVE to blast our favorite playlists on full volume in our headphones. What we might not love is the irreversible damage it does to our ears with possible complications of hearling loss or tinnitus that might affect us years down the road. We believe we need to educate our community about the potentials of hearing loss since we are a culture which depends on (oftentimes loud) music. Did you think we could just go clubbing and go to festivals and get off scott free? ;) Hair cells don't grow back, at least not yet.
