A 'sound' investment opportunity

Sorry for the pun in the title, but a colleague of mine with a background in audio and video (!) often tells people that a good place to put one's money in the coming years is in hearing aid companies. The reason, he says, is that with the explosive growth of the personal music player market and how young people constantly turn the volume up past the point of hearing damage (or as he puts it, "where their ear drums are meeting in the middle of their heads"), today's youth are going to be needing hearing aids very early in their lives.

On that note (no pun intended this time), I am posting a link to the following news story about Apple putting a max volume limiter on some iPods.
