Amps up to the max, endless gigging, pyrotechnics and years of being a rock star can put tremendous strain on your ears, so it’s no wonder so many musicians suffer from poor hearing health.

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin knows all too well the toll years of live concerts can take on your hearing, suffering tinnitus for well over a decade now.

In an interview with the Daily Mirror, Martin revealed that, “Looking after your ears is unfortunately something you don’t think about until there’s a problem.”

Not only does he wear protection whilst playing, but he also ensures he and even his children use hearing protection when attending concerts.

Chris Martin isn’t the only one. Eric Clapton, of the Black Eyed Peas, Neil Young, Ozzy Osbourne, Phil Collins and Sting are just a few musicians who also suffer from tinnitus and hearing loss due to their musical lifestyles.

In fact, after developing the persistent ringing condition, Sting actually became a celebrity ambassador for the Hear The World Foundation.

Remember that ringing in your ears you had after leaving your last concert? Imagine what that type of noise exposure can do to a musician after years of gigs.

HearSafe Australia provide industry professionals, musicans, DJ’s, sound engineers and fans the best hearing protection. It’s never been more important to protect your ears against noise if you’re in the music industry.
