Study on negative effects of headphone use by teens appears in media nationally

MSN Health and Fitness, Businessweek and 20 health publications feature a study on the use of personal music players by teens by Abbey Berg, a professor in the biologyand health sciences department at Pace.  

Personal music players may pose a major risk to hearing if they’re played too loudly or for too long, the study shows.

The 24-year study included 8,710 teenage girls from disadvantaged families. Between 1985 and 2008, high-frequency hearing loss — a common result of excessive noise exposure — among the girls nearly doubled, from 10.1 percent to 19.2 percent. While the findings show an association between personal music players and hearing problems, they do not show cause-and-effect.
