Hearing Health Tip of the Day - Be Ready for Crowd Noise

Whether it’s the NHL playoffs, the hottest concert in town or opening weekend of a Hollywood blockbuster, big events often mean big noise. Be prepared for loud environments that could hinder your hearing in the future.

Decibels (dB) measure the intensity of sound. The range starts at the faintest sounds a human ear can detect (0 dB) to more than 180 dB, the noise at a rocket pad during launch. Continual exposure to more than 85 db without protection can be dangerous. An average rock concert can average 110-120 dB when at the back and close to 140 dB if you are in front of the speakers. Proper ear protection, or even wearing a hooded shirt, will ensure you stay connected.

Do you know where the loudest crowd noise ever recorded was? See the video below, recorded March 18, 2011 at 131.76 dB in Turkey and still holds a Guinness World Record.
