The University of Leeds is conducting a national survey into the music listening behaviour of deaf people aged 18 and over who wear hearing aids for at least one hour a day.
There is an online survey and to take part you have to fit the following criteria:
- have a confirmed hearing loss (e.g. mild, moderate, severe or profound),
- wear 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.
A BSL video can also be seen here:
They will ask you about your:
- experiences of music in everyday life,
- musical preferences
- hearing aids
It should take about 30 minutes to complete and you will remain anonymous. If you leave your contact details, you 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.
All the information they collect about you will be kept confidential and you will not be identifiable in any reports or publications.
