Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

Always Protect Your Hearing, Especially at a Music Concert!

Wearing earplugs at a concert?  It almost seems like a joke.
But noise-induced hearing loss is no laughing matter.  Loud concerts can
lead to temporarily reduced hearing ability and other issues including tinnitus,
a ringing or roaring sound in the ears that has no external source.
Exposure to loud noises can lead to permanent damage, too.

Studies have shown that regular exposure of more than one minute at or above 110 decibels can cause gradual, permanent hearing loss.  A typical rock concert rings in at 120 decibels.  The use of appropriate earplus and earmuffs can help you protect your ears while still allowing you to enjoy the sounds of a show.
