Did you know that many cases of hearing problems are entirely preventable? Exposure to loud noise can result in hearing loss or other hearing problems like tinnitus (a ringing or buzzing in the ear). Over time, any sound that is 85 decibels or higher can have a negative and permanent impact on your hearing. That is why it is so important to take steps to protect your hearing today.
Examples of noise levels considered dangerous by experts are a lawnmower, a rock concert, firearms, firecrackers, headset listening systems, motorcycles, tractors, power tools and industrial machinery. All can deliver sounds in excess of 90 decibels and some up to 140 decibels.
