Abstract

   The objective of the study was to determine the listening habits, listening attitudes, safety issues, and information dissemination preferences towards personal listening devices across demographic factors of CDU students for Academic Year 2017-2018. The study was conducted at Cebu Doctors' University (CDU) in 1 Dr. P. V. Larrazabal Jr. Avenue, North Reclamation Area, Mandaue City, Cebu. Respondents include 384 randomly selected CDU undergraduate students using a twostage sampling technique. The research tool utilized was "A Survey on the Use of Personal Listening Devices" (SUPLD) adapted and modified from Hoover and Krishnamurti (2010) and Serpanos, Berg, and Renne (2016).


   The study revealed that most CDU students came from the College of Rehabilitative Sciences (32%) and from the third-year level (32.6%). Majority of CDU students used smartphones (97.7%) with earbuds (81.8%) everyday for one (1) to two (2) hours in a single session. Most CDU students listened to PLD for one (1) to two (2) hours in a day. Most CDU students used a volume of 50% to 75% of the maximum volume. Additionally, majority of CDU students listened to pop music (75.8%) while relaxing (80.5%). Most CDU students (49.5%) had fair listening habits. Majority of CDU students (54.4%) had neutral listening attitude towards PLD use. They showed moderate (86.7%) safety issues while using PLDs. Most CDU students would heed advice against wearing earphones with PLD depending on who is  advising (33.9%). Majority of CDU students (57.8%) preferred to include all the topics proposed disseminated in the internet (80.7%). Majority of CDU students preferred Information set B (62.8%). Results showed slight differences in proportions across colleges and year levels in CDU students' duration of PLD use in a single listening session and in a day, in music genres listened, in overall listening habits, in advice against PLD use, and across colleges in volume level used, and in motivators for safe PLD listening.


   Students across colleges and year levels used earbuds with smartphones--with a preferred volume level of 50%-75%-- everyday while relaxing. The students showed moderate safety issue. In terms of information dissemination preference, they preferred Information set B. Though, most colleges and year levels listened to PLD in a single session for one (1) to two (2) and for less than one (1) hour respectively. Most colleges and year levels used PLD in a day for one (1) to two (2) hours, listened to pop music, and had fair listening habits. Most colleges and year levels would heed advice depending on who is advising and were indifferent to advice correspondingly. Most colleges used a volume of 50% to 75% and preferred Information set B. The study recommends including audiometric testing and using the study as basis for hearing health education.
