Are Earphones Causing Hearing Loss in Younger People?

There has been a rise in younger people with hearing loss. The World Health Organisation estimates that one in 5 people aged between 12 and 35 has hearing loss and a further international study highlighted that 5.3 percent of 12-19-year-olds have hearing impairments. Statistics show that almost 4 million young people are at risk of hearing loss caused by over amplified music. The alarming global pattern has been partially attributed to the rising use of earphones with young people.

However, it is not just younger people who are at risk, if you or a loved one uses earphones regularly then read on.

Can you believe these tiny earphones are potentially dangerous?

How Earphones Can Damage your Hearing.

In a busy society, earphones are convenient and a polite way for you to catch up on the latest hits from Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift or your fave but earphones can cause serious damage.

Every time sound waves reach your ears they make your eardrum vibrate. The vibration is sent to the inner ear via several small bones until it reaches the cochlea. The cochlea is a chamber in your ear that is filled with fluid and thousands of tiny hair cells. The hair cells communicate sound messages to your brain.

Damage to the hair cells makes the cochlea less effective at communicating with your brain and the result is hearing loss. You cannot reverse the effects of hearing loss. Earphones sit within your ears and are high risk if used incorrectly.

How Am I Damaging My Hearing?

People often damage their hearing because they listen to their music too loudly. If you are constantly increasing the volume on your earphones this could be a sign that you have damaged your hearing. People also use their earphones for long periods of time which is also detrimental. If you use your earphones all the time then you may be damaging your ears. Hearing loss is often gradual and not always immediately noticeable.

The link to hearing loss and portable hearing devices is now being recognized by large brands and in June 2019 Apple announced the introduction of the ‘Noise’ app which will help listeners to monitor their listening volume. Here at Veritas Hearing, we encourage earphone users to be responsible with their devices.

With Great Earphones Comes Great Responsibility – Be Safe!

Use Your Earphones Responsibly!

Music is not dangerous but you should listen to it at safe levels to prevent noise-induced hearing loss or tinnitus. Safe listening levels are determined by the loudness, frequency, and duration of the exposure. The highest safe level is 85 decibels for no longer than 8 hours.

You should not listen to loud music for prolonged periods of time because you will damage your hearing. Another tip is to avoid wearing earbuds and opting for headphones especially the noise canceling variety because they eliminate background noises.

  1. I have been surfing online more than three hours
    today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
    I couldn’t refrain from commenting. Perfectly written! Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.

    The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon.
    Many thanks http://aoc.com

  2. Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring
    blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any
    tips and hints for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  3. Excellent blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you suggest starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that
    I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!
