(BPT) - Baby boomers grew up listening to The Who’s Live at Leeds and other albums with liner notes that admonished young rockers to “play it loud” or “turn it up.” For the generation that grew up blasting stereos until the bedroom windows rattled and attending rock concerts that left ears ringing for a week or more, it’s little surprise that many are experiencing hearing loss.
Numerous conditions, including illnesses, medications and exposure to loud noise can cause hearing loss in people of any age. But, when it comes to members of the baby boomer generation, there is little doubt that excessive noise exposure is the most common culprit. In fact, an estimated 26 percent of boomers have been diagnosed with hearing loss.
It’s unfortunate that the very thing this generation enjoyed the most has resulted in losing the ability to hear the full range of treble tones, bass notes and subtle virtuosity of the music loved so much. The good news is that with today’s hearing aids, it’s possible to bring music back.
