Our scientific adviser, Richard Salvi, is quoted in this Washington Post story about earplugs. He remarks on the hidden nature of hearing problems: “People can’t comprehend your normal-looking outward appearance with the unseen disturbance going on inside your head.”
The article also describes hyperacusis and mentions Hyperacusis Research. It is encouraging to see this challenging condition getting more media attention.
Reminder: Earplugs must be worn properly to be effective. Experiment and practice! In the photo, Justin Bieber is receiving very little protection from this earplug.
