1. MP3-Related Hearing Loss

We live in a raucous world; restaurant noise can hit 90 decibels and a spin class can top 100Db — guaranteed to damage hearing in 15 minutes. Add in earbuds and crank up the tunes above 85 decibels on your MP3 player—that’s 75% of its max— and you could have permanent hearing loss. 

Today, 5 million young people have hearing loss—and up to a third of older folks do, too. The solution: Make sure you can hear conversations around you when using earphones and wear noise-reducing earplugs at concerts, in noisy clubs and restaurants.

quote I have severe hearing dam...

I have severe hearing damage. It’s manifested itself as… ringing in the ears… It hurts, it’s painful, and it’s frustrating.

— Pete Townshend, lead guitarist in The Who
