NOISE STORY: What is the place of silence in our overloud lives?

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) - The world is encased in buzzes, honks and beeps, but where is the balance between useful and healthy sound, and noise pollution? And, if we're constantly surrounded by white noise, what is the place of silence in our overloud lives?

Hearing really connects people to one another. It's really what connects everyone to the environment...and world. When we use hearing as our primary mode of communication and interacting and socializing with those that we love, it's not until we start to notice hearing loss that we really realize what we're missing.
