Event Description:

The event provides information about how much intensity people listen through hearing devices (allowing them to physically see the damage done to their ears when listening to their headphones or earphones using the decibel meter). The population was also educated about hearing loss due to recreational exposure during the event. All participants were able to gain knowledge on hearing health and experience the appropriate listening situations they should put themselves in.
