St. Johns Hearing Care Company Can Help You Prevent Hearing Damage at Concerts

ST JOHNS, Mich. - Michimich -- Are any of your favorite musicians performing in your area?

Whether it's a concert, music festival, or small local show, music events are fun for everyone.

They can get quite loud too! Have you ever had ringing in your ears the day after a concert?

Tinnitus can be a sign that your hearing has been damaged. According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), concerts can be between 94-110 decibels in volume. Hearing loss can occur at over 85 decibels, especially if prolonged over time. The majority of concerts last 1-2 hours, so the risk of damaging your ears is high. People of all ages can develop noise induced hearing loss, so it's important to protect yourself!

Wear earplugs – Once your hearing is damaged, it can't be reversed. It's better to protect your hearing from the start by wearing earplugs. Cheap foam earplugs will work, but if you really want to protect your ears, musician's earplugs are the way to go. Musician's earplugs block out background noise and deliver precise, safe sound. You can get them from us! See here.

Choose Your Seat Wisely – While sitting or standing by the stage could be a dream come true, it can also be damaging, especially if you already have some degree of hearing loss, which 23% of Americans do. When picking your seat, choose a seat towards the middle or back of the room.

Take Breaks – Leaving the venue for a few minutes to go for a bathroom break or grab something from the concession stand can give your ears a needed break. Remember, noise induced hearing loss occurs over a prolonged time. If you remove yourself from the loud area periodically, the chances of harming your ears will decrease.
