The purpose of this project was to demonstrate how to use Audioscan Verifit 2 equipment to measure amplification output of specialized Hearing Protection Devices, such as In-Ear Monitors for musicians and other consumer headphone technologies. There is a vast deficit of research in this area and a need for more audiologists and other professionals who are promoting hearing conservation to have easily accessible clinical guidance on use of verification tools to counsel patients regarding safe use of these devices. Dangerous and loud sounds are everywhere and in order to promote hearing conservation it is crucial to inform consumers in order to attempt to protect them. This project was designed to provide clinical audiologists and other hearing instrument specialists with practical suggestions they can take back to their practices.
