H.E.A.R.® and NAMM ® Are Teaming up to Provide Free Ear Plugs and More for Attendees
San Francisco, CA (H.E.A.R.) January 19-22, 2012---
The 2012 Winter NAMM® Conference in Anaheim, California will be highlighted by collaborative hearing conservation efforts between NAMM® and H.E.A.R.® by providing Mack’s Earplugs in the NAMM Bins around the NAMM Convention showroom and lobby.
H.E.A.R. has been working together for some time with NAMM in these efforts and is very pleased to be able to provide a hearing conservation platform for what we expect will be an outstanding NAMM show this year," reports Peck. In addition to free earplugs, visitors to the H.E.A.R.® booth #2005 Lobby -Hall D will be able to receive free ear impressions for custom fit items like musicians' ear plugs and personal monitors.
H.E.A.R. will also be showcasing its Listen Smart: Safely Handling the Power of Sound DVD, the Cine Golden Eagle award-winning “rockmentary” produced by Dan Beck (HAMF) featuring Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica and others designed to create awareness about noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), and encourage safer practices in consuming high decibel sound.
Peck continues, "we are seeing a wonderful change in the way musicians, sound engineers, music industry professionals and music students care for their hearing, but more needs to be done. It is our pleasure to work with NAMM® to further help people protect themselves from hearing damage as well as to save the hearing they still have - if any loss has already occurred. "
