The Audio Engineering Society (AES) and the House Ear Institute (HEI) will offer hearing screenings and hearing health information for attendees and exhibitors at this year’s AES Convention, booth #102.

The hearing screenings, offered as part of HEI's Sound Partners hearing conservation program, will be available throughout the four-day convention and same-day appointment times can be scheduled at the HEI information booth. A certified OSHA technician will conduct the screenings.

Upon completion, participants receive a computerized printout of their test results. All individual test data is retained in a confidential database at the Institute so that people who have had previous screenings at AES can compare their current test with their prior year's results. A licensed audiologist will be available during the show to counsel participants on their confidential results.

The screenings and hearing health information at AES and other industry shows are a traditional part of the HEI's Sound Partners program, an outreach initiative to raise awareness among audio and music professionals and the listening public about the importance of safe listening practices to prevent permanent hearing loss. The complimentary materials offered provide information on noise-induced hearing loss, hearing protection devices and conservation practices promoting better hearing health.
