This is an era of headphones everywhere, we are used to wearing headphones high decibel to answer mobile phones and listen to MP3 players. But a survey shows that among the people aged 18 to 44 who often listen to loud music, 1 / 4 of them have hearing problems

according to a media report, the latest survey found that due to the habit of wearing headphones to listen to mobile phones and MP3 players at high decibel, more and more people in the United States lose their hearing

it is reported that a recent survey by the New York City Department of health found that among people aged 18 to 44 who often listen to loud music, 1 / 4 of them have hearing problems. Moreover, people who listen to high decibel headphones are more than twice as likely to have hearing problems as those who listen to low and medium volume headphones, or even don’t use them. 1n addition, people aged 18 to 44 are more than three times more likely to listen to music with headphones than those over 45. About 36% of young people wear headphones every day, and 16% of them listen to music at high decibel volume for 3-4 hours every day. Young people who often wear headphones to listen to high decibel music are at the same risk of hearing problems as those over the age of 45

according to the New York Health Council, long-term high decibel stimulation can cause irreversible damage to the inner ear, leading to inflammation and hearing loss. When using headphones, the audio frequency should not exceed 60% of the maximum volume, and the continuous use time should not exceed one hour. When choosing headphones, try to choose the earmuff type and use less earplug type. 1n addition, do not use headphones in noisy public places, buses and subways
