Wear ear defenders - DJ

Monday February 3rd, 2014

A top DJ has urged music lovers to wear ear defenders to concerts amid concern about the growing risk of damage.

DJ Paul Oakenfold spoke out today in support of Tinnitus Awareness Week.

Campaigners are using the week to try to alert the public to the risk from ever-increasing volume of music.

As many as one in three people may override safety warnings on mobile phones and music players to listen to loud music through ear-phones, according to an opinion poll commissioned for the week.

The charity Action on Hearing Loss warned that 10% of people are already affected by tinnitus daily.

Its poll found that nearly 50% of people are listening to music for at least a third of their working day.

Mr Oakenfold said: "I feel passionately about listening to music safely, and urge music lovers to wear ear defenders to gigs and avoid dangerously high volumes on personal music players.

"Getting decent noise-cancelling headphones also cuts down the risk of damaging your ears and suffering tinnitus caused by over exposure to loud music. No one wants that. So protect your ears whilst loving your tunes!"

The charity's chief executive Paul Breckell added: "Most people have experienced tinnitus, but those who are severely affected can experience fear, anxiety and feelings of helplessness that affect their quality of life."
