About H.E.A.R. and The National Campaign for Hearing Health

Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers and Ravers

(H.E.A.R.) is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of the real dangers of repeated exposure to excessive noise levels, which can lead to permanent, and sometimes debilitating, hearing loss and tinnitus. Damage from dangerous decibel levels can occur from playing music, attending concerts, dance clubs, raves, unsafe use of stereo earphones, playing amplified systems too loudly, or other noisy activities. H.E.A.R. is here for musicians, DJs, sound engineers, music fans (especially teens) and anyone needing help with their hearing. Sign Up! for the H.E.A.R. Street Team and download our Free H.E.A.R. FAQs flyer.

Founded in 1958, DRF's mission is to make a lifetime of hearing possible through quality research, education and advocacy.
