Our first paper for Apple Hearing Study was just published! You can find the paper, Impacts of COVID-19-related social distancing measures on personal environmental sound exposures, for more details.
The Apple Hearing Study is a partnership between the University of Michigan and Apple to study sound exposure and its impact on hearing health. This groundbreaking study will advance our understanding of how hearing could be impacted over time by exposure to sound at certain levels. We will measure headphone and environmental sound exposures over time among our participants, and determine how these exposures impact hearing and stress levels. Our study will provide us with a better understanding of listening behavior and its overall impact on hearing health. You can find more details here.
