Hearing Loss in Youth

Today’s Youth are at Risk of Significant Hearing Loss –At 85dB, you can listen to music for eight hours with no damage. But for every 3dB increase, cut that time in half. Four hours for 88dB, 2 hours for 91 dB (subway, lawnmower), half hour 97dB (motorcycle), 3fi minutes at 100dB (school dance), and for a concert which can be 110 dB and above… less than a minute!
