Users listening at high volumes for more than an hour a day each week risk permanent hearing loss after five years. This is equivalent to 5 percent to 10 percent of the listeners, which may be 2.5 million to 10 million people in America. Personal devices with a music-playing facility are considered a particular threat because ear-bud type earphones lead to a greater sound exposure than other types of listening devices. When listening to music, especially at a high volume people don’t think about how it can negatively affect them in the future. These actions can lead to long term hearing loss which could affect your life in different ways. In our video the main character is a student that is not able to hear the conversations between her friends which leads her to missing out on a social interaction in school. The end of the video shows the alternative of listening to music at a high volume constantly, and she is able to be aware of her surroundings. What if you could take it all back?
