I'm a baby boomer, and I’m saddled with a hereditary hearing loss. Even with my hearing aids I only hear about 50% of what others hear. There are many voices that I can’t hear well. I have no idea what a cricket sounds like. Without a helmet mirror I’d have virtually no idea when a car was approaching from behind. Once my hearing aids are out at night, even a smoke detector alarm will not wake me. In a world where sight and sound are the two most used senses, having a deficit with one is a serious thing. I would strongly urge folks to protect what hearing you do have.
