Protect Your Hearing Every Day

Keep your hearing safe and sound with the latest hearing loss prevention tips.

How to Prevent Hearing Loss

In a buzzing world, your ears are always on duty — even when sleeping — processing and connecting you to the surrounding environment. Unlike your eyes, which can close to shield from bright lights or airborne dust, your ears don't close when things get too loud. This makes us all susceptible to noise-induced hearing loss. With the right guidance and products, you can protect yourself from it.

Noise-Induced Loss

When your hearing is compromised, you miss out on more than just hearing the world around you – your overall health can be compromised. Sudden noise over 120 decibels (dB) can cause immediate damage, while continued exposure to 70 dB or more will cause progressive hearing loss. Exposure to loud noise damages the delicate hair cells in the inner ear, which transmit sound to the brain. These cells don't repair themselves, so any damage is often permanent, causing tinnitus and hearing loss.

For musicians, machinists, factory workers, hunters, and others in high-noise environments, ensuring that your hearing is protected helps protect your future wellbeing. While some age-related loss is inevitable, diminished hearing from loud noise isn’t.

Benefits of Hearing Protection

Protecting against loud noise is one of the most effective steps to prevent hearing loss. Retaining your ability to hear translates into a lifetime of benefits. Loud noises not only put ears at risk, but also cause the body to release stress hormones, raise blood pressure, increase heart rate, and cause rapid breathing. By reducing noise levels, your entire body will appreciate the preventive measure.
