Risks of Listening Always Music at High Decibels 69
Yes. Well ... you heard! With recent findings by the EU Scientific Committee shows that 5-10% of people who listen to personal music players (mp3 players) risk permanent hearing loss if you use this device for more than one hour per day each week at high volume settings for at least 5 years. Koufathikate?
Already there is a E UROPEAN safety standard, which reduces the noise level of mp3 players to 100 dB (decibels), but there is increased concern over hearing damage from excessive exposure to such sources. The damage can be prevented to a large extent by measures such as reducing the level and duration of exposure to noise.
According to the Scientific Committee, users of personal music players - if they listen for only 5 hours per week at high volume settings (exceeding 89 decibels) - exceed the limits for noise allowed in the workplace. People who listen to music under such conditions for longer periods risk permanent hearing loss after 5 years!
What can we do to prevent koufathoume? The obvious. To turn down the volume of the unit. Also, do not use the device for extended periods, in this case protecting the health of our ears.
