Top 5 Earplug-Worthy Gifts: #5 Movie Passes

This week, Connect Hearing has been naming the top five holiday gifts that should come with a set of earplugs. The final gift idea on our list is one that many Canadians can expect to find under the tree. Movie gift certificates, they pack a lot of joy — and noise.

"The sound levels inside theatres — especially during the blockbuster action films — can often exceed 100 decibels for some scenes. Wearing earplugs will reduce the chance of hearing damage and also the discomfort of listening to those loud action sequences," says MJ DeSousa, our Director of Professional Practice.

A study conducted by the Ear, Nose and Throat Journal in 2010 recorded the highest decibel levels that summer during the following movies: Transformers (133.9), License to Wed (129.1) and The Simpsons Movie (128.6). Among the loudest movies this year have been "The Avengers" and "The Dark Knight Rises."

“An even greater concern is that noise levels are not predetermined by movie genre. PG-rated movies are frequently at a dangerously high decibel levels,” MJ says, noting that more and more Canadians below age 40 are suffering from hearing-related health issues.

And don't forget - another great gift idea is an appointment for a complimentary hearing screening. Contact the Connect Hearing clinic closest to you for more information.
