Author Kelly Denton looks at the plethora of good ear gear in this issue's "Hearing Is Believing" roundup. Today's top-of-the-line digital circuitry offers even better auditory clarity with less distortion and annoying background clutter. Some are even tunable to the specific frequencies you want to hear. Companies are making strides with new technology as well as the super-competitive pricing. After selecting the model that suites your tastes and wallet, however, you still have to wear the darned things—anytime you're in a noisy environment. Get in the habit now to save what hearing you still have. And you younger folks, pay attention. Don't make the mistakes far too many of us older guys did. Like not understanding back then the benefits of wearing sunscreen or protecting our eyes from UV rays that can bring on macular degeneration and other vision maladies. Everyone these days knows better. That means you.
