Some noises are just too loud for your ears, like a lawn mower or jet engine. If a noise makes you feel uncomfortable, it is probably too loud and could result in noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). Although research is ongoing, currently NIHL is permanent and irreversible- but it is preventable.
SAFEEars! strives to motivate individuals of all ages to take action against noise-induced hearing loss by understanding the cause and the solutions, because damage incurred today can last a lifetime. By clicking on the link, you can discover how sensorineural hearing loss (hearing loss due to excessive exposure to noise) can affect your hearing, through a Hearing Loss Simulator, courtesy of the Better Hearing Institute.
