Research subject

The aim of the research is to investigate children's and adolescents' attitudes toward noise and loud music and their listening habits during concerts, rock-festivals, listening to mp3-players etc. Finding factors which can lead to awareness about the risks associated with exposure to loud sound volumes, and in addition to find factors that might play an important role for the prevention of noise induced hearing problems, are of special interest.
