Review of orchestra musicians' hearing loss riskss

Stuart Eaton, Heather Gillis

The VSO data indicated high-frequency notches suggesting minimal noise damage in some musicians. Results showed asymmetries in hearing for violinists and flutists which could be attributed to asymmetrical sound exposure.
