Katie Couric Gets a Hearing Test

On July 10, 2012, Katie Couric reported on a personal story during which she obtained a hearing test.

In a modern society like the United States, there are many sources for hearing loss with our alarms, lawn-mowers, and loud music.

As the article correctly pointed out, damage due to loud noises is due to two factors: loudness and duration.

The louder something is, the shorter time of exposure before hearing damage can occur. The quieter something is, the longer a person can listen before suffering noise-induced hearing loss.

Otherwise, hearing aids may be in your future... even if you are in your 20s or 30s!
