Did you know that the most common cause of deafness is noise-induced hearing loss? This means the less you protect your ears from harmful noise volumes, the less you’ll be able to hear your favorite band for years to come. The amount of hearing damage will depend on how loud the noise is, as well as how close you are to it and how long you are exposed to it. A normal conversation is around 65 decibels (db), the unit used to measure sound levels. A typical rock concert can generate anywhere from 100db -120db, which can be extremely harmful to your ears. If you’ve ever left a concert with ringing ears, it could be time to contact an ear specialist to have your ears examined for tinnitus.

What Kind Of Earplugs Should I Use?

With such a large variety of earplugs available on the market, it can be difficult to navigate to the safest and most affordable solution.
