Hearing Loss Prevention
The Level is Too Loud If:
  • You must raise your voice to be hear
  • You have difficulty understanding someone who's an arm's length away.
  • You have pain, ringing, or buzzing in your ears after exposure to loud sounds.
  • Speech sounds muffled or dull after noise exposure
To Help:
  • Keep the volume down.  A good guide is half the volume.
  • Limit listening time.  Give your hearing "quiet breaks".
  • Model good listening habits for your children.
