‘Acoustic shock’ is a term used for individuals who have incidents involving exposure to short duration, high frequency, high intensity sounds through a telephone headset. Some sources suggest that these incidents are associated with a range of symptoms that have been reported amongst headset wearers. There is no clear single cause of these incidents, but one cause may be interference on the telephone line.
If you have experienced acoustic shock as a result of your working environment you could be entitled to compensation.
