Abstract
In the past few years, the number of publications on the risk of acquired hearing loss among children and young adults has increased substantially both in the scientific literature as well as in the popular press. The headlines tend to be fear-provoking: 'TURN IT DOWN! MP3 fans told;' 'Sounding a warning on earbuds!;' 'People risk hearing losses at younger ages, experts warn.' Although sensationalised by the media, scientific evidence of increased risks to hearing faced by youth is not yet available.
