What? Huh? S’cuse me? Hearing loss among U.S. adolescents has surged and its being blamed on devices such as iPod ear buds for listening to their music.
Researchers surveyed found that 19.5 percent had some hearing loss, compared with 14.9 percent in a study covering the years 1988 to 1994. Authorities at the House Ear Institute say listening to loud sounds through ear buds is probably the main reason that more adolescents are losing some of their hearing.
