Life is filled with so many sounds: restaurants, recreational sports, music, fireworks, crowds, lawnmowers, motorcycles, power tools, shooting ranges, industrial machinery….
Without hearing protection, noise exposure at levels of 85dB and above for an extended period of time may be unsafe and noise-induced hearing loss is possible.
Hear what noise-induced hearing loss sounds like. Watch GENERATION HEAR, produced for music educators to use in the classroom, musicians, parents and anyone committed to preserving musicians’ most precious asset—hearing.
Check out the sound rule by Etymotic for more specific information about your individual noise exposure. Adjust the slider to see how varying decibel levels affect your daily exposure.
Concerned about possible hearing loss? Check out the national hearing test and schedule a hearing evaluation with us. RK Audiology has a high-frequency clinical audiometer, allowing for hearing measurement out to 20,000Hz.
