Leading KL Hearing Aid Center Hosting Open House at Sunway Pyramid


Following its recent successful Open House at MidValley Megamall, Malaysia's leading hearing aid center, NewSound Hearing, will continue with an Open House this weekend at Sunway Pyramid.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, May 22, 2015 --(PR.com)-- NewSound Hearing is hosting an open house spotlighting the Siemens Binax hearing aid, Saturday, May 23 and Sunday, May 24 from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. both days at their Sunway Pyramid Branch.

Did you know that you can permanently lose your hearing from exposure to loud noise?

Three million Malaysians have hearing loss. One in three developed their hearing loss as a result of exposure to noise. This May, Better Hearing Month, NewSound Hearing and audiologists across the nation are encouraging Malaysians to protect their hearing by:

· Wearing hearing protection when around sounds louder than 85dB for a long period of time;
· Turning down the volume when listening to the radio, the TV, MP3 player, or anything through ear buds and headphones; and
· Walking away from loud noise.

“Noise-induced hearing loss is caused by damage to the hair cells that are found in our inner ear. Hair cells are small sensory cells that convert the sounds we hear (sound energy) into electrical signals that travel to the brain. Once damaged our hair cells cannot grow back, causing permanent hearing loss,” explains Jenny.

The loudness of sound is measured in units called decibels (dB). Noise-induced hearing loss can be caused by prolonged exposure to any loud noise over 85 (dB), such as concerts, sporting events, lawnmowers, fireworks, gun shots, custom car stereos at full volume, and more. A brief exposure to a very intense sound, such as a gun shot near the ear, can also damage your hearing.

Noise is considered dangerous if you have to shout over background noise to be heard, it is painful to your ears, it makes your ears ring during and after exposure, or if you have decreased or “muffled” hearing for several hours after exposure.

Hearing impairment not only affects your ability to understand speech but it also has a negative impact on your social and emotional well-being. If you suspect you may have hearing loss, make an appointment to see an audiologist. He or she will perform a hearing test to determine the type and severity of hearing loss you may have.
