High-Tech Personal Stereos May Be Linked to Teenage Hearing Loss

I loved today's conversation! My mother never liked us using headphones. She would always tell us to use the boom box or stereo (at a reasonable volume) rather than the headphones. She would say that no matter what they said (that headphones did not cause harm), it was only logical they did. Now as an adult I am still reluctant to wear them, unless I am at the gym. I purchased a radio with an iPod docking slot. I guess the point my mother made stuck with me. As a teenager I went to my first concert and could not stand the ringing on my ears afterwards...ever since then I always wear earplugs to concerts. Professor Torre is right you hear the music just fine. Thank you so much for this, now I am going to tell my mother she was right, as usual. :-)
