    One in six Australians is affected by hearing loss. With an ageing population, this is expected to increase to one in four by 2050.

    There's a high personal and economic cost associated with hearing loss in Australia which is estimated to total $33 billion annually.

    A significant proportion of hearing loss is preventable and experts are warning that we should turn down our devices and reduce the amount of time spent listening with earphones to avoid permanent damage.
