HEAR THE MUSIC - MARSHALL CHASIN, EDITOR

Marshall Chasin, Hearing Health Matters "This is the best of blogs; this is the worst of blogs'. To paraphrase Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities, it is the two-headed nature of music and hearing aids that a hearing aid can be great for speech yet useless for music, and, conversely, great for music yet less than optimal for speech. What are some tricks that can be used to improve a hearing aid for music? How can we prevent hearing loss from loud music? This blog asks these questions, and with your input, even more.
