Hearing damage

Hearing damage occurs because the cilia in the inner ear are damaged by too much exposure to loud noises. Sound is already harmful from 75 decibels (health standard). The cilia can become overloaded if the sound is very loud, but can also happen if you are exposed to loud noise too often or for a long time. This can result in noise hearing impairment.

In addition to hearing damage, exposure to loud noise can also lead to stress, reduced concentration or increased blood pressure. In addition, tinnitus can occur due to high noise levels. People with tinnitus hear beeps and whistles or slogging, banging and humming. Since 2016, harmful noise has been officially recognized as an irreversible health hazard. You can prevent this by wearing our hearing protection.
