Inside the Ear Campaign
The “Inside the Ear” campaign centers around a series of commonly unknown facts about hearing, educating us on the wonders of our ears through compelling visual animations covering:
- How does sound reach our brain?
- What does noise-induced hearing damage look like?
- What does hearing loss look like inside my ear?
- How does earwax work?
- How does tinnitus and hearing loss work together?
“At GN, our mission extends beyond providing innovative hearing technologies. Through campaigns such as “Inside the Ear” we are dedicated to educating and empowering individuals, enabling them to make informed decisions about their hearing health and inspire proactive steps toward achieving better hearing,” explains Mirjam van Oort-Lohuis, Chief Marketing Officer, GN Hearing.
“Hearing wellness has never been more important, yet many people have little understanding of how their hearing works. We hope this visual project will give curious minds a new appreciation for the world inside the ear”
–Soundly CEO, Blake Cadwell
Importance of Hearing Health
Hearing health is not only essential for experiencing the sounds of life, but it also plays a vital role in promoting overall wellness. With the “Inside the Ear” campaign, consumers are equipped with immersive visual tools to enhance their understanding of ear health and function, creating a further appreciation for the profound impact hearing health has on overall well-being such as:
- Cognitive function: Untreated hearing loss has been linked to an increased risk of dementia and cognitive decline. The ACHIEVE study published in The Lancet suggests that using hearing aids may potentially reduce the risk of developing dementia by up to 48% in high-risk individuals. This highlights the importance of maintaining good hearing health for overall brain health.
- Communication: Hearing enables us to understand and interpret spoken language, which is important for social interactions and maintaining emotional well-being.
- Safety and awareness: Good hearing health enhances our situational awareness, allowing us to navigate our surroundings safely and respond appropriately to potential hazards.
