How Loud Is Too Loud
The risk of hearing damage can be roughly calculated as "how loud" and "how long" you are exposed to a certain level of sound. Experts agree that continuous exposure to noise at or above 85 dB(A) can cause hearing loss. If your experience leaves your ears ringing, or dulls your hearing sense, you've been listening to something that's too loud or for too long without proper hearing protection. If you can't speak to someone who is 2 meters away without shouting, there is a good chance the level of noise is high enough to cause damage. However, you may still be damaging your hearing even without these outward damage warnings.
Example: Listening to headphones turned up loud enough to overcome street noise. Over time, the cumulative effect of symptomless damage can have a serious long-term impact on your ability to hear. When you compound this damage with high-volume sound at concerts or in nightclubs, some level of hearing loss is virtually unavoidable without hearing protection.Turn down the headphones. Protect yourself when you are at a live music venue, large concert, nightclub or even the movies.
EarPeace ear plugs are the best ear plugs for fans at concerts and live events, DJs, musicians, and anyone else that feels their favorite live entertainment is too loud.
