The ear is one of the most important human senses, not much
different from the eyes and other senses. If the ear is not
working properly, a person would have a hearing loss or even
deafness. Therefore, it is no wonder if maintaining healthy
ears is what needs to be done around the world every day.
One of the things that can damage the hearing is to hear the
sounds that are too strong, including music. Much research
has revealed that listening to music too often, especially
directly through earphones or headphones can damage hearing.
Recently, researchers also analyzed the relationship damaged
ears with music.
Health experts recommend that world we just listen to music
only an hour a day. Just listen to music one hour a day to
maintain the health of our ears and hearing. WHO has revealed
that millions of young people at high risk of hearing loss as
a result of listening to loud music.
Research in the United States found that 40 percent of teens
and young adults at risk of hearing loss due to loud noise at
a nightclub, bar or elsewhere.
Who said that listening to sounds above 85 decibels for eight
hours or 100 decibels for 15 minutes is not very safe.
Headsets often have a volume of between 75 136 decibels, and
most people fix their average volume of between 75,105
decibels. In a place with loud music, usually the average
sound level of 104-112 decibels. Meanwhile, overall, the
average sounds above it.
The sound is too loud can cause damage to the sensory cells
of the ear. While in the short term can cause temporary
hearing loss and tinnitus, in the long run, this can cause
permanent hearing loss. In addition to listening to loud
noises, several other factors such as smoking and diabetes
can also affect a person’s risk for experiencing hearing loss
