NAMM and H.E.A.R. are promoting hearing conservation by providing Mack’s Earplugs in bins around the NAMM 2012 trade show floor and lobby areas.
H.E.A.R. continues working together with the NAMM organization, as they have for many years, to help promote the importance of hearing health issues.
“We are noticing a real improvement in awareness through these efforts and I am very pleased to be able to contribute, in support of both the organizers and the attendees, for what we expect will be an outstanding NAMM show again this year,” reports Kathy Peck, co-founder and director of H.E.A.R.
In addition to free earplugs, visitors to the H.E.A.R. booth #2005 in the outer lobby outside of Hall D will be able to receive free ear impressions for custom fit items like musicians’ ear plugs and custom-fit personal monitors.
H.E.A.R. will also be showcasing its DVD, “Listen Smart: Safely Handling the Power of Sound,” the Cine Golden Eagle award-winning “rockmentary” produced by Dan Beck (HAMF) that features Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica and others designed to create awareness about noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), and encourage safer practices when consuming high decibel sound.
Peck continues, “there truly is a wonderful change in the way musicians, sound engineers, music industry professionals and music students care for their hearing, but more needs to be done. It is our pleasure to continue our great relationship with NAMM to further help people protect themselves from hearing damage as well as to save whatever amount hearing they may have – even if any loss has already occurred.”
