AC/DC Frontman Brian Johnson Has “Amazing” Experience With New Hearing Technology


AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson may be able to take the stage once again, thanks to new developments in hearing technology. After accepting a public invitation to try out the Active ADEL hearing technology, Johnson has come back with positive results, commenting:

“It WORKS. It just totally works and you can’t argue with that. I was really moved and amazed to be able to hear music again like I haven’t heard for several years now. I can’t wait for it to be miniturized so I can use it in every situation from normal communication, going out to noisy restaurants, to performing live music on stage.”

Sadly, as Johnson suggests above, it would appear the technology is not yet viable for day-to-day use, but progress is being made towards that. The official press statement on the matter can be found below. Johnson had to step down from the band earlier this year at the risk of permanent hearing loss. The band have since resumed touring with Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose filling in for their previously booked touring commitments.
