Bloomberg looks to lower volume on headphones

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Mayor Bloomberg's latest health crusade is turning down the volume on headphones.

A new campaign getting launched is warning about permanent hearing loss from loud music played through earbuds.

The health department program will cost about $250,000, paid for by a grant from the fund for public health.

And will likely add to criticism that the mayor is trying to play nanny to New Yorkers.
