The #1 Concert Accessory You're Missing Out On
Nothing quit beats the sound of the thumping bass coming out of a crystal clear sound system at a club on a Saturday night.
Oh wait, yes there is. It’s hearing loss.
In an age where millennials practically came out of the womb wearing ear buds, not enough music fans are properly protecting their ear drums.
A 2010 study published by the Journal of American Medical Association, found that hearing loss among teens increased to 19.5% when conducted in 2005-2006. This was an increase of 4.6% compared to when the study was first conducted between 1988-1994. Although genetic factors may be at play, there is a stronger correlation that increase among teens may be associated with noise-induced hearing loss.
With the increased of accessibility to music, and an estimated 32 million people attending festivals in the United States, the likelihood of noise-induced hearing loss is only going to become more prevalent.
Although you may think that the little ring in your ear is just a nice souvenir from the night before, it may actually be a sign of severe and irreversible damage to your ears.
