New York City mayor targets headphones in new campaign

NEW YORK (CNN) - Listen up! The mayor of New York is targeting headphones.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has launched a campaign to warn people about the risks of losing their hearing from blasting music on their headphones. The particular target -- teens and earbuds. Some audiologists say the campaign is a good idea -- as they've seen more teens coming in with noise-induced hearing loss. But many New Yorkers had a different reaction -- telling Bloomberg to stay out of their ears.

The initiative is being financed with a grant through the city health department's fundraising arm, Fund for Public Health.
