Hearing (Loss): Index


“The biggest problem is that the best way to carry out true clinical trials is to expose people to noise until they go deaf.”

—“A Noise Annoys”, by A.D. Wallis (Managing Director, Custom Electronis Associates Ltd., Castle Associates Division), in Melody Maker (October 5th, 1974).
