Thanks for printing an article on hearing loss amongst students.

I am seeing the trend of younger people with irreversable loss. An average walkman/MP3 player will be set at 100 dB. This can do as much damage in 2 hours as 16 hours set at 85 dB. If they worked in a factory hearing protection must be worn at 85 dB.
