While the world around us is getting noisier and noisier, our hearing is always present, and we can’t turn it off. Research shows that noise exposure leads to hearing loss and has significant impact on our stress level and everyday well-being.

Tim Textd After Tim has briefly introduced the CreativeMornings Berlin audience to the world of everyday sounds, he subjects the 90 visitors to a hearing test: Tim plays a tone whose frequency rises from 200 Hz to 20,000 Hz. Everyone has to rise a hand, and those who cannot hear the high tones at some point lower their hands. Then Tim talks about the role of our hearing, why we should protect our hearing from loud noises in our youth and what we can do in old age not to end up in eternal silence.
