Don’t be a fool, hearing loss ain’t cool…
Ever gotten home from a night out at a club, been to a concert or watched fireworks or a Monster Truck show then layed in bed and found that you can’t get to sleep because your ears are ringing?
The ringing you hear may be constant or sporadic. It may also appear as other sounds such as whistling, buzzing, or roaring.
Why Do My Ears Keep Ringing?
We’ve all been there and experienced this at least once in our lives… For the most part, you find the ringing is temporary and usually goes away overnight or within a couple of days. All is good again now right? Wrong!
This ringing sound is tinnitus.
What is Tinnitus?
Exposure to Loud noise often leads to tinnitus—a ringing, buzzing, or roaring in the ears and or head.
Throughout time, we may continue to experience tinnitus a number of times. It may come and go and then one day it might just stay. Hearing loss and tinnitus can occur in one or both ears.
You’re not alone, sadly approximately 1 in 6 Australians experiencing some form of hearing loss.
How loud is too loud?
Long exposure to sounds over 85 decibels (dB) can cause hearing loss.
Concerts tend to be about 115 dB or more, depending on where you’re standing. The louder the sound, the shorter amount of time it takes for noise-induced hearing loss to occur.
If you have to yell to be heard then it is too loud! Loud noise or noise that you are exposed to for longer periods of time damages your hearing plain and simple!
We have microscopic hair like cells in our ears, Most noise induced hearing loss is caused by the damage and eventual death of these hair cells. Sadly, these hair cells don’t grow back. They are gone for good.
A noise that’s too loud or long-lasting destroys the hair cells, causing hearing loss or partial deafness. But that’s not all. Recent studies show that noise also severs connections between nerves and brain, which makes for the likely cause for the inability to separate the background from foreground sound. You will tend to notice this problem more when trying to talk/hear someone when in a crowded room such a restaurant.
What about the Music
At a concert or festival, it’s all about enjoying the music.
But without hearing protection you can often spend only up to a quarter of an hour in a noisy environment, without risking permanent hearing damage.
However, many music lovers prefer to take this risk than to have a minimal distortion of the music by wearing hearing protection.
With the new Alpine PartyPlug Pro™, you don’t have to make this choice anymore!
