Australian reality television host Osher Günsberg showed off his Phonak hearing aids to his social media fans, with an important message about hearing health.

The 42-year-old host of Australia’s “The Bachelor” and “Australian Idol,” shared his slick Phonak receiver-in-canal (RIC) hearing aids with an earfie photo on Instagram.

“Wear earplugs. Turn your earbuds down,” he wrote to fans, alluding that his hearing loss may have been a result of unsafe listening practices.

It is unclear what level of hearing loss Osher may have, however he told one fan on Twitter that his Phonak hearing aids help him “hear lots more” and communication is now “less frustrating for my family that’s for sure.”

About 1.1 billion people around the world are affected by hearing loss, including more young people than ever. There are some easy things you can do to protect your hearing when listening to music, such as keeping the volume under 60 percent of the max volume and wearing well-fitting headphones that block out background noise.
