The music and entertainment industry is unique in that high noise levels are often regarded as an essential element for the enjoyment of people attending concerts and live music events.
However, there is a risk of hearing damage for people working in the music and entertainment industry, including musicians. Most musicians and people are aware of the danger they are exposed to, but there is a lot of misunderstanding about hearing protection and how to protect your hearing in the best possible way. It will also depend on what kind of instrument you are playing, or what your work environment looks like.

In 2008 a study was conducted by the Health and Safety Labatory in the UK about the usage of hearing protection with musicians. Quite an interesting read if you are a musician yourself or want to get a better understanding of what musicians do to protect their hearing.
