UNTREATED HEARING LOSS AND SOUND DEPRIVATION: DON'T RISK IT
Your ears receive sound, but it's your brain that processes the sound and makes sense of it. The auditory part of your brain needs sound stimulation to stay sharp.
Use it or lose it:
If hearing loss is left untreated, auditory pathways can waste away because they're not being used. This can lead to more difficulty for the brain to process and discern words and sounds.
Consequently, the brain works extra hard to piece together what is being said or make sense of sounds its hearing. This often leads to auditory fatigue, stress, frustration, depression, and sometimes self-isolation.
Latest research shows a direct link between hearing loss, memory loss and dementia.
"Having played in a pipe band for the last number of years as a drummer, and realizing the need for ear protection, I made the decision to obtain some musicians ear protection. I am a new user of these earplugs, and have found them to be of benefit while playing with the band. Pipes and drums can be very loud at our practices, but the plugs allow me to hear my fellow bandsmen, and still be able to play to the sounds we need to hear for the unison in the drum corps and with the full band. Thank you Argus Audiology for your suggestion to obtain and wear these protective devices. My career as a drummer can now continue , I hope for many years of listening and playing pleasure. I would strongly recommend these, and I am seeing more and more fellow players wearing ear protection – truly good “sound” advice!"
