We are researching the music listening experiences of people with all levels of hearing loss who use Hearing Aids or Bone Anchored Hearing Aids (BAHA).
This survey will ask you how often you listen to music, why you listen to music and about the music you enjoy. You will also be asked about your hearing loss and the hearing aid(s) that you use.
The survey will take about 30 minutes to complete. If you leave your name and email address you will be entered into a prize draw for a chance to win one of three £75 prizes. If you would like to receive information about the results and/or discuss your responses in more detail, you can leave your contact details at the end.
To take part you must
• wear one or two hearing aids for more than 1 hour a day,
• be 18 years or older
If you have a cochlear implant you will not be able to take part.

Survey data will be used to explore patterns in the listening experiences of people with different levels of hearing and to develop advice for hearing aid users wanting to improve their access music. Data will be collected, stored and managed for a period of 25 years in accordance with the University of Leeds Information Security Policies (compliant with NHS Information Governance Toolkit). [NB: data will be kept for this long because a key research outcome is a website which will provide advice to the general public on issues to do with music listening with a hearing loss that will extend beyond the duration of the research project]. All published research outputs will be anonymised.
