audi has been in business since 1977 and is a leading independent authority on audio and home audio. Through the company’s research, publications, and consulting services, audi has provided consumers with the most up-to-date information to help them make informed decisions about their audio and home audio needs.
In this week’s audi Q5 Consumer Reports newsletter, a report from the Consumer Federation of America and the National Association of Consumer Product Safety Commissions revealed some disturbing findings on the dangers of listening to and using consumer electronics.
Audio and Home Audio is not your usual consumer electronics report; it’s your personal audio and home audio report. And it should be.
First off, there are so many ways to get your ears hurt. The most common of these are ear infections caused by the constant ringing in your ear is one of them. The second is the constant buzzing in the ear. The third is the constant tinnitus that is heard in the ear, like the one mentioned in the report. The fourth is what audi Q5 calls “sensory deprivation.
The tinnitus in the ear is caused by the constant vibration happening in the nerve cells in the ear, causing the brain to hear something other than what it really wants to hear. And then the sensory deprivation is caused by the constant ringing or buzzing in the ear. This sensory deprivation is a problem, but it is not as bad as the tinnitus.
The audi Q5 report says about this tinnitus: “The tinnitus is a sensation of something unusual happening in the ear, usually a noise that interrupts the normal sound of the ear. A tinnitus can range from the occasional loud noise and a ringing in the ear to a constant ringing or sometimes buzzing in the ear. The sensory deprivation is a condition in which a person has constant sensory deprivation.
The company that developed the device went on to say that it’s not a medical device, but a “consumer device”. This is because it is no longer under active medical testing. The FDA’s current medical device approval process requires that any device that is in the clinical trials of a drug or device for a drug be approved by the FDA. Therefore, the device will only be approved if it is deemed safe and effective.
We’ve mentioned some of the more important issues in the consumer reports, but we’ll try to cover them in a forthcoming release.
