Description: 

Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers (H.E.A.R.) is world-renowned for its efforts to educate the public about the dangers of excessive noise and to provide adequate hearing protection to musicians and music fans. H.E.A.R. promotes awareness about hearing damage by disseminating public service information and announcements to the media, producing hearing conservation “rocumentary” DVDs, and by establishing information and earplug tables at music events in the United States. H.E.A.R. programs include the H.E.A.R. Partner program in cities worldwide, custom musicians’ hearing protection programs, hearing screening clinics, and online hearing health and music resources. The professional/consumer hearing education conservation program "Listen Smart: Safely Handling the Power of Sound" is available as a DVD.
