Today, NYC Health launched a new ad campaign today warning people that listening to headphones at high volume can cause tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and irreversible hearing loss. The ads encourage people to protect their hearing by turning down the volume when using headphones.
 
To protect your hearing when using headphones, remember to:
Reduce the volume, limit listening time, and take regular breaks.
Never listen at maximum volume and do not turn the volume up to drown out external noise.
Use volume limiting features of personal listening devices.
Know the early signs of hearing loss and ask a doctor for a hearing test if you have trouble hearing conversation, need to turn up the volumes on TV, radio or personal music players or experience ringing in the ear.
