Hearing protection is a very valuable product that can potentially save your hearing.
Here is a few words we have put together to explain.
The best ways to prevent hearing loss to need protection is avoiding loud noises.
Usually a noise is probably loud enough to damage your hearing if,
Noise levels are measured in decibels- the higher the number, the louder the noise you are hearing . Any sound over 85dB can be harmful, especially if you’re exposed to it for a long time and your ears are not used to the noise.
To get an idea of how loud this is-
Prolonged noise exposure can cause permanent damage hearing loss and maybe tinnitus. As we are specialists we urge the care of your ears and the damage that can build up over time which can go unnoticed . Noise – induced hearing loss is however preventable.
For example those who always listen to personal audio devices at high volume with ear buds , are at risk of developing a temporary or permanent change in hearing thresholds. The impact is cumulative , so if the habit persists for over a few years the chance of a high frequency hearing loss increases.
