Hearing aid users’ music survey

Musician playing electric guitarThe School of Music at the University of Leeds is conducting research into hearing aid users’ enjoyment and use of music.

Researchers would like to find out about the listening behaviours of people who use a hearing for a minimum of one hour a day.

Participants will be asked about:
• experiences of music in everyday life,
• musical preferences
• hearing
• hearing aids

The survey should take about 30 minutes to complete and all responses will be treated anonymously.

If participants supply their contact details, they will be entered into a prize draw to win one of three £75 cash prizes. Winners will be selected at random and notified in JANUARY 2017.

To participate in the survey you will:

• have a confirmed hearing loss (e.g. mild, moderate, severe or profound),
• use hearing aid(s) (but NOT a cochlear implant),
• are between 18-90 years old

A BSL version of all the information and questions is available in the questionnaire.

The project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
