Risks of prolonged noise exposure

The silent epidemic of permanent hearing loss

We evolved as humans around five million years ago with hearing to enable us to communicate and keep us safe, it hasn’t evolved much since.

We use headphones more and more in our daily lives, but our hearing is not designed to be exposed to these large sound doses according to the World Health Organisation. As a result more than 1.1 billion of us are at risk of permanent, avoidable noise induced hearing loss.

The biggest source of large sound doses for most of us is from headphones so new safety standards are being introduced to provide us with information about our sound exposure so we can manage it ourselves.

What would it be like if you had hearing damage?

Why HearAngel®?

Until now there has been no way to calculate your sound dose outside of a laboratory.

HearAngel® is built into your wireless headphones to calculate the effect of what you listen to and give you accurate information about your listening habits, notifying you if you are at risk; think of it like a Fitbit for your ears. If you want, you can choose to enable HearAngel’s protection feature, which will manage your exposure automatically, making sure that you don’t exceed your Daily Sound Allowance® and preventing you from being exposed to harmful sound doses.
