More Noise, More Hearing Loss – NYTimes.com

I can relate to this given my hearing loss, my experimentation with hearing aids before abandoning them before starting my last series of treatment. Group settings and background noise are particularly problematic, so choice of venue becomes more important. Quote:

We need to quiet things down a bit for everyone, but especially for those who are already deafened. Webster’s defines noise as sound “that lacks agreeable musical quality or is noticeably unpleasant.” That’s a subjective definition. What’s music to your ears is almost always noise to mine.
