Lower Volume Means 'iHear'

American Speech-Language- Hearing Association today renewed its call for the public to follow three simple safety tips to ensure their safety when listening to any personal audio technology.

Over the past year, ASHA has led a national public education campaign, America: Tuned In Today ... But Tuned Out Tomorrow? which encourages safe usage of such technology.

Campaign tips include:

-- keep the volume down

-- avoid prolonged, continuous listening by taking frequent breaks

-- wear headphones that isolate wanted music from background noise
