Are portable music players associated with hearing loss in children?

(JAMA Network) The effect of portable music players on the hearing of children is unclear. A new study found that about one in seven children (9-11 years of age) showed signs of noise-induced hearing impairment, prior to exposure to known noise hazards such as club and concert attendance. Portable music players, used by 40 percent of 2,075 children in the study from the Netherlands, were associated with high-frequency hearing loss. Repeated measurements are needed to confirm this association.
