How Noise Can Damage Your Hearing?

Any repeated exposure to sound over 85 decibels (dB) can damage your hearing. The louder it is, the less exposure time is required for damage to occur. Sounds over 120 decibels (similar to a loud rock concert) can cause immediate damage to your ears.

Exposure to noise can damage the hair cells in the inner ear, which can affect hearing. Once damaged, it cannot be repaired. Sufficient damage will result in permanent hearing loss.

Activities that put you at risk for noise-induced hearing loss.

Many common activities can put you at risk for noise-induced hearing loss.

The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) recommends hearing protection for the following settings and activities:

Car race

Sports event

Fireworks display


When riding motorcycles, dirt bikes, and snowmobiles, and when operating ATVs or tractors

Band or Orchestra rehearsals and performances

Industrial, warehouse, farm, landscape, and other loud (or potentially loud) workplace environments

Shooting sports

Choosing the Right Hearing Protection

There are different types of hearing protection. They include:

Hi-Fi Earplugs: Reduce overall sound but maintain sound quality

Filtering Earplugs: Reduce loud sounds while letting you hear other noises

Electronic Earplugs: Can be customized according to the environment, but are more expensive than ordinary earplugs

Earmuffs: For extreme noise protection and to cancel out all sound

When deciding which hearing protection is right for you, you need to:

Figure out How Much Noise Reduction You Need: For example, if your job exposes you to noise between 85-90 decibels, you may only need hearing protection that reduces the sound by 10 decibels. In some work environments, it can be dangerous to reduce the sound too much and affect your hearing.

Consider Your Environment: Are you exposed to loud noise intermittently or continuously throughout the day? Do you have to wear other gear like a helmet or protective glasses? Do you need to interact with other people and hear what they are saying while you work? Your choices for hearing protection may depend on these answers.

Find What's Comfortable: Sometimes hearing protection comes down to basic personal preference. For some people, earplugs are more comfortable and convenient than earmuffs. While others may not like or have difficulty getting things into their ears, they prefer earmuffs. Whatever you insist on wearing is your best protection.

Choosing the right earplugs can significantly improve your quality of life by providing comfort, protection, and tranquility in noisy or dangerous environments. Consider earplug type, fit, and purpose to make the best decision for your unique needs.
