In-Ear Monitors and Earphones for Musician’s
How Many Decibels Is Too Loud?
Sound is measured in units called decibels (dB). The higher the decibels level, the louder the noise. On the decibel scale, the level increase of 10 means that a sound is actually 10 times more intense. Any sound over 85 decibels can be dangerous to your hearing, and live music typically falls around the 110 to 140 decibel range.
Importance of Hearing Protection
For musician’s and frequent live music listeners, you may often experience a ringing in your ears after a concert. Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) is often a symptom of prolonged noise exposure. The symptoms of tinnitus can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days, depending on the severity. If your ears are ringing after loud noise exposure, you should come in for a hearing evaluation.
Noise-induced hearing loss is becoming more popular in individuals, especially young adults. Prolonged exposure to any noise that exceeds 85 decibels can be detrimental for your hearing. As a musician, it is important to protect your hearing in order to continue to hear your music with optimal clarity. Wearing custom hearing protection such as musician earplugs or in-ear monitors are a great way to ensure you are still hearing your music while protecting your ear health.
You deserve the utmost clarity and protection when it comes to music. At Hearing Clinic of Greater New Orleans, we carry a variety of custom-made hearing protection that will allow you to perform and feel at ease knowing your ears are protected.
