2/5 classical orchestral musicians are hearing impaired

November 15, 2016 2:30 pm

Two out of five musicians have hearing loss and three out of four suffer from varying degrees of tinnitus, a Norwegian study finds.

A study conducted in one of the largest classical orchestras in Norway found that hearing impairment is a significant problem for 43.6% of the musicians. The study also found that 76.9% of the musicians experience tinnitus of varying frequencies. The results stress the fact that it is not only musicians in the genres of rock and pop who are at risk of damaging their hearing.
