We are constantly bombarded with sound, from the quietest to the loudest, it all has an affect on our hearin. Simply put, sound levels that you have to raise your voice above are likely to be damaging your hearing.
the lounder the noise or the longer the period you are exposed to it, the more damge is caused. A breif exposure to a very loud sound - such as a single gun shot - can cause as much damge as extended exposure to a quieter sound such as a power tool. Loud music at a concert, in the car or through headphones can cuase permanent hearing loss.
Even your household equipement, mixers and vacuum cleaners etc, could cause damage, and most of your DIY or powered gardening equipment almost certainly will....
Unless you protect your hearing.
We offer a full range of passive and active (electronic) hearing protection, sleep moulds, swim plugs and all manner of ear-pieces too numerous to list.
