The result of Tel Aviv University research holds that, hearing loss is most affected by using walkmans and other peculiar devices. Prof. Chava Muchnik in TAU’S Department of communications undergone with certain studies and results as, the early loss of hearing is mainly affected among the teens with the ratio of 1:4.

This means that the music listening habits must be regulated among the youngsters. The extraordinary harmful effects are more pronounced with the use of iPods and other devices like MP3 players. This outcome is demonstrated and made public through the publication International Journal of Audiology.
