About H.E.A.R. and The National Campaign for Hearing Health
Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers
(H.E.A.R.) is a non-profit
organization dedicated to raising awareness of the real dangers
of repeated exposure to excessive noise levels, which can
lead to permanent, and sometimes debilitating, hearing loss
and tinnitus. Damage from dangerous decibel levels can occur
from playing music, attending concerts, dance clubs, raves,
unsafe use of stereo earphones, playing amplified systems
too loudly, or other noisy activities. H.E.A.R. is here for
musicians, DJs, sound engineers, music fans (especially teens)
and anyone needing help with their hearing. Sign

by the Deafness Research Foundation (DRF), the largest private
