Friends I talk to say what my husband and I say: The music on TV is louder than the people talking. So you turn up the volume, but sometimes you still can’t understand because then the music is even louder.
I realize that, more and more, TV is geared toward the young and they like loud music, but we senior citizens like to watch TV and we can’t enjoy it with the music hurting our eardrums.
And, of course, the commercials are way too loud. But that is a no-brainer: Just hit the mute button.
