If you're a music lover, it's important to protect your ears. Whether you're a musician, a regular concert-goer, or a working DJ, looking after your hearing is important so you can keep enjoying music for years to come. Exposure to loud music can result in tinnitus, with this physical symptom of ear damage commonly experienced as ringing in the ears.
Tinnitus is a real problem for many musicians and music fans. Ringing in the ears can be highly annoying and has been linked to both anxiety and depression. Tinnitus can be caused by a single loud event or ongoing exposure to multiple loud events over many years. In order to protect your ears, it's important to manage your exposure to loud music and other noises with ear plugs.
Sounds at or below 70 dBA are unlikely to cause any hearing loss or damage, even with long exposure. However, long or repeated exposure to sounds at or above 85 dBA can cause tinnitus and hearing loss. Many music concerts and festivals are louder than this, which is why it's important to protect your ears with high-quality music earplugs from Earjobs.
