About Listen To Your Buds

To raise awareness about hearing health, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) developed the award-winning "Listen To Your Buds" campaign. The campaign educates the very young about practicing safe listening habits such as turning down the volume and taking listening breaks when they use personal audio technology so they can avoid the devastating, lifelong effects that can accompany hearing loss.

Recent research both in the United States and abroad indicates that misuse of the technology has the potential to cause noise-induced hearing loss.

How to Get Help
