Please don’t stop the music! Just turn it down a bit

Repeated exposure to loud music can cause permanent hearing loss and ringing in the ears, or tinnitus. Here are a few things you can do to prevent hearing loss.Music has always been a passion of mine.  I started singing ever since I was 3 years old.  Hearing the different instruments blend together to make beautiful harmonies never gets old.  I can’t imagine life without being able to hear a single note played.  My heart goes out to those who are deaf and hearing impaired.  According to recent studies, people such as servers, bartenders, and DJ’s among others exposed to loud music, are beginning to lose their sense of hearing.  Exposing yourself to really loud music can permanently affect your hearing; music will never sound the same again.

Repeated exposure to loud music can cause permanent hearing loss and ringing in the ears, or tinnitus. Here are a few things you can do to prevent hearing loss.There are many precautions we can take to avoid early hearing loss and tinnitus.  For example, while listening to your iPod, turn down the volume to a reasonable level and set a maximum volume limit.  It’s not necessary to blast music if the headphones are already in your ears.  If you like to attend concerts, wearing ear plugs can help.  It’s only for your own benefit.  It is better to turn down the music than to damage your ears constantly by listening to it too loudly.  At times, we don’t take into consideration how delicate our ears are and how important it is to preserve our sense of hearing, so we must take better care of our ears.
