Noise Induced Hearing Loss

Protect. Preserve. Pinnaclear

Noise exposure and your hearing.

We live in an increasingly noisy environment but the general hubbub of noise around us isn’t usually damaging to our ears. We rely on little hair cells in the cochlea part of the inner ear to convert sound into electrical impulses and when we are exposed to louder noise than our ears can handle, the hair cells are damaged resulting in a hearing loss and quite often tinnitus, too. Therefore, when sound exceeds normal listening levels for a considerable length of time, it can have irreversible effects on our inner ear.

Decibel (dB) is a measure of sound level and normal conversation is around 60dB. An alarm clock ringing can reach around 80dB and motorcycles can reach around 120dB. Anything above 85dB is classed as harmful. 

How to prevent noise-related hearing loss.

  1. Limit your exposure to loud sounds
  2. Turn down personal listening devices or get some custom made earphones to connect to your existing device for a clearer listening experience.
  3. Wear ear protection
 

If you feel your hearing has deteriorated due to exposure to loud sounds or if you feel that you would like help managing any tinnitus (ringing in your ears). Get in touch for some open and clear advice today.
