In "Let's Get Loud," Jennifer Lopez sings "If you wanna live your life, live it all the way and don't you waste it."
 
Protecting your hearing can help you live life all the way... so that you can enjoy the craziness -- and the quiet sounds, too!
 
To that end, we've assembled a few quick hearing protection tips for those who will be lucky enough to visit the World Cup... but of course, even if you're viewing the matches in your neighborhood pub, these tips could come in just as handy.
  1. Leave your caxirola home. It's in fact banned from all World Cup stadiums.
  2. If you must shout to be heard by two seats over all those fanatics (yes, that is what fan means), use earplugs.
  3. If you must shout to be heard by the person sitting next to you, learn some signs to communicate, use your hearing protection, and/or run for cover!
Seriously, if you will be attending the World Cup -- or any other loud public event (matches, games, rallies, concerts, etc.) -- do bring and use good quality earplugs: 
  • Find a pair that are designed for comfort -- a bell-shaped foam is great.
  • Select a corded style -- to keep from getting lost in the shuffle & excitement.
  • Read the label. Pick a pair that provides a high NRR rating for ample protection.
  • Follow the instructions to achieve the proper fit. Practice!
  •   Consider Howard Leight's Super Leight (http://www.howardleight.com/earplugs/super-leight). They're widely available. Click here to see where (http://www.howardleight.com/consumer/store
Let's get loud -- while protecting your hearing -- and enjoy the matches!
