Pardon me? Would you repeat that? Say that again?

Hearing loss varies with age. At least 25 percent of patients older than 50 years (and MORE than 50% of those older than 80 years of age) have hearing loss.
Listen with headphones? We may underestimate the vulnerability of ears to music-induced hearing loss. Occupational exposure can also affect hearing and we may be less aware of this due to its common, frequent nature. Not surprisingly, young adults represent a group in which the prevalence of hearing loss is increasing.
