Listening Too Loud

 

According to James C. Denneny III, M.D., CEO of the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery,  it has become common for people to listen to music through headphones and earbuds at around 100 decibels (dB). Rock concerts may hit 120 dB.

Frequent exposure to sounds over 85 decibels (dB) over time can impair your hearing, he explains. The louder the sound, the less time it takes. Just 14 minutes of exposure to sound at 100 dB can begin to damage sensitive structures in the inner ear.

And teens and young adults may be especially likely to expose themselves to earsplitting noise. According to a 2016 report from the World Health Organization (WHO), 1.1 billion young people worldwide face an increased likelihood of hearing loss from risky listening practices.

Nearly 50 percent of people between 12 and 35 listen to unsafe levels of sound on personal audio devices such as smartphones and other personal music players, says the WHO.

 

Protect Those Ears

 

Take steps to curtail habits that may harm your hearing (or that of teens and younger children) over time. Our experts advise the following:

  • Be especially careful about exposing yourself to loud environments if you’ve already had tinnitus.
  • Wear earplugs at loud events. Inexpensive foam drugstore products will do. Or, wear earmuffs.
  • Keep the volume on headphones and earbuds at 60 percent or less of maximum volume. Researchers at the Boston Children’s Hospital recently determined that listening to music on headphones or earbuds at this volume for an hour a day should be relatively safe.
  • If you’re unsure what a safe volume is, Denneny says you should still be able to hear outside conversation when listening. “If the person next to you can hear what you’re listening to on your earphones, that’s over 100 dB and that’s too loud,” he says.
  • Opt for over-the-ear headphones instead of earbuds; this may help safeguard your ears.
  • Consider buying a portable decibel meter from an electronics store, or downloading a decibel meter app on your cell phone. This can give you an idea when you might need earplugs.
  • If you (or your youngster) experience tinnitus or suspect hearing loss, talk to your doctor. He or she can help determine whether a medical issue such as impacted earwax is getting in the way of proper hearing or whether a true hearing problem is the cause.
