2020-10-23

Damages resulted from repeated exposure to loud sound that crosses the standard limit of 85 decibels (dB) or the results from a single loud sound near to ear like some firecracker can cause severe effects on your ear. It can reach an alarming level of hearing loss as well.


According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), noise exposure is the second most common cause of hearing loss. Apart from hearing loss, the damaging effects of loud sound on ears can't be ignored.


Damage hair cells in your ear:

A person born with 16,000 average hair cells in their cochlea; through these cells, he could detect sound and then perceive it. About 30% to 50% of hair cells are destroyed and damaged before any hearing test. The cells once damaged can’t be restored and could cast irreversible loss to your hearing.


Effect on auditory canal:

Noise can also damage the auditory nerve that carries messages about sounds to your brain. Once this nerve is damaged, there are plenty of chances of your hearing loss.


Following are some noise activities which can damage your ears:

  • Listening to loud music through headphones, at a concert, or while you’re playing an instrument.

  • Going to the movies in theatres or cranking up the volume on the TV at home.

  • Going to sporting events attended by large, noisy crowds.

  • Going to fireworks shows.

  • Working with loud power tools.


To avoid above-mentioned high-pitched sounds, one needed to shun these activities and avoid visiting such places. If it is not possible, like working in a construction site with loud power tools that are unavoidable, Noise cancelling earphones are the best solution for these.
