NY Mayor launches campaign warning of hearing loss from headphones
(CNN) -- The mayor of New York is now targeting headphones.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg has launched a campaign to warn people about the risks of losing their hearing from blasting music on their headphones.
The particular target: teens and earbuds.
Some audiologists say the campaign is a good idea, as they've seen more teens coming in with noise-induced hearing loss.
But many New Yorkers think Bloomberg should stay out of their ears.
The initiative is being financed with a grant through the city health department's fundraising arm, Fund for Public Health.
