Since 1997, House Ear Institute (HEI) has provided free hearing screenings to well over 5,000 music and sound industry professionals at industry trade events around the country. HEI offers this outreach service for industry professionals through its Sound Partners hearing conservation program. In addition to hearing screenings, industry pros also receive literature on the scientific facts that matter most surrounding the causes and prevention of noise-induced hearing loss as well as free consultations with our non-profit research audiologists. HEI is proud to share its world-renowned scientific research and decades of knowledge with the audio and music pros who depend on sound advice when it comes to their hearing health.

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