Exposure to excessive noise—not age—is the leading cause of hearing loss, and continued exposure can worsen preexisting hearing problems.
Even more troubling is the fact that noise-induced hearing loss, once acquired, is both permanent and irreversible.
The good news, however, is that noise-induced hearing loss is 100% preventable by turning down the volume or by wearing ear protection. Learn more about noise-induced hearing loss here. Or better still, make an appointment with us to learn how our comfortable, effective hearing protection can not only help safeguard your hearing, but can also enhance your auditory experience.
Hearing damage occurs due to prolonged exposure to loud noise. At 85 decibels (dB) you can safely listen for 8 hours without hearing protection, but every 3dB increase in dB will halve the safe exposure time. So 88dB is 4 hours, 91dB is 2 hours and so forth. Average concerts are at around 100dB which means you have only 15 minutes safe listening time.
