Music and Hearing Aid Research-Survey Launch

October 13, 2016 at 2:04 PM

A recently launched national survey that investigates the impact of hearing loss and the use of hearing aids on people's enjoyment and use of music.

We are conducting research into the music listening behaviour of people (aged 18 and over) with hearing loss and who wear hearing aids for a minimum of one hour a day. We anticipate that BAA members will have valuable links to potential participants and would be very grateful if you could pass this information on to them on our behalf.

Our project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and we are keen to recruit as many participants as possible It incorporates a BSL translation of all the information and questions as well as the opportunity for participants to respond to open questions in BSL

(N.B. We are not looking to recruit cochlear implant users as the technology is fundamentally different and there is a growing body of research investigating the musical experiences of cochlear implant users.)

Details of the project can be found on our website at

A short promotional video is available at

The survey is available at

If you would be willing to follow us on Twitter @musicndeafness and retweet information about the survey that would be greatly appreciated.

The researchers would like audiologists to pass the information on to potential participants.
