With so many portable audio devices available these days, an increasing number of us have begun using earphones on a daily basis.
However, an indirect effect of this habit is the possibility of damaging your ears, lessening your ability to hear. To understand how loud sounds damage your ability to hear, we must first understand how our ears function.
Noise-Induced Hearing Loss occurs when loud sounds cause molecules to form in the ear which damage the small sensory cells. Solution:The best way to avoid Noise-Induced Hearing Loss is to keep your audio below 85dB and avoid prolonged use. A good set of high quality, well designed earphones can have a great impact on minimizing the risk of NIHL.
There are many things that can cause damage to the auditory system, but the most common is noise damage.
Please visit the NIH’s Interactive sound ruler for examples of various types of sounds and their hazard levels.
Musicians work in a high decibel environment in which hearing loss, tinnitus, hyper-sensitivity to sound and sound distortion can result.  Traditional earplugs are not a good choice for the professional musician, as they reduce sound by muffling low-to-mid-range frequencies, which change the frequency spectrum of what they are hearing. Hunting requires the ability to hear very soft sounds, while still having a need for protecting the ear from the peak noise levels of a gun blast.
Regular or continuous exposure to loud sounds (such as music system, factory noise, traffic sounds) can led to hearing loss. A person with hearing impairment has difficulty in communicating his feelings and interacting with his friends.

Hearing loss from loud sounds - including rock concerts and iPods - usually begins with injury to hair cells at the base of the cochlea (l., blue) because it is most susceptible to vibratory damage. Earphones, or earbuds, offer many desirable benefits ranging from convenient portability, to greater external noise isolation. Brief exposure to a 90dB sound may not damage your hearing, but if your ears are exposed for extended durations, there is a definite risk.
The sound causes the eardrum to vibrate, which in turn causes the malleus (mallet), incus (anvil), and stapes (stirrup) to also vibrate. When the destruction of the sensory cells reaches a certain point, the damage can be irreversible, and the hearing loss may be permanent! By following a few precautionary guidelines, and using a high quality set of earbuds, you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite audio for years to come. Custom musicians earplugs are available that can protect the musician’s ears from loud sounds without distorting what they hear. Loud, sudden noises (gunfire, industrial noises, woodworking, motorcycles, loud music, motorized lawn equipment, noisy hobbies and other noises louder than 90 db) are more damaging to hearing than regular and extended exposure to loud sounds over a period of time. Pulsating concerts and constant iPod listening have transformed music into an ear-damaging nuisance for all ages.
Everywhere, people can be seen walking around with those tell-tale cords dangling from their ears; this is a true testament to our love of music and audio.
Since we need our ears to continue enjoying audio, it is crucial to follow safety precautions when using earphones. In fact, if you were to listen to the 90dB sound for three hours, you could cause the same damage as a 150dB, 30 second sound blast. Vacuum cleaners, noisy restaurants, and New York City traffic have all been rated right around 85dB and are great examples. There are also a variety of in ear monitors that will enhance the music experience whether you are a serious musician or just a music aficionado.
Not only can they choose from custom or over-the-counter earplugs or earmuffs, they can also choose protection devices that provide amplification while reducing the sounds of gunfire down to a safe level. Young, developing children are at especially high risk, so special attention should be given to developing and encouraging precautionary behavior in kids. Hearing protectors not properly fitted to the wearer’s ears do not effectively prevent damaging noises from penetrating the ear canal. This close proximity reduces the amount of sound that escapes, thus increasing the loudness. So if a person is already using their earbuds at a level greater than 85dB and they are doing so for extended periods of time, there is a very high risk of permanent noise-induced hearing loss.
Both can register a blistering 120 to 130 decibels.Decibel units are the measurements used to express differences in power or intensity between acoustic or electric signals. Unfortunately, many people make the common mistake of increasing their earphone volume in an attempt to get better sound, or to block out external noise. Small sensory “hair” cells located on a membrane of the cochlea move with the motion of the traveling waves. Sounds that register above 85 decibels are considered a dangerous exposure to the human ear, and can lead to permanent hearing loss over time. If your ears are routinely subjected to loud noise for extended periods of time, they begin to adapt.
This adaptation may lead people to further increase the audio of what they are listening to and risk damage to their hearing.
When these sensory “hairs” are agitated in this way, they are able to accept an inrush of chemicals which cause an electric signal to be generated.
For example, if you listen to audio while running for hours, keep your volume down around 30%.


But I know enough about chemistry to know that a chemical by itself may be poisonous but not poisonous when in a compound with other chemicals. If you want to rock out to that really heavy song, feel free to turn it up to 50% volume, just make sure you’re not listening to the super-long, extended version! About 26 million people from ages 20 to 69 have high frequency hearing loss most likely caused by exposure to loud sounds. A normal conversation can register at 60 decibels, while heavy city traffic pushes the safety threshold at 85 decibels. Real danger can come from constant exposure to motorcycles, firecrackers, small firearms and rock concerts that all register at 120 decibels or higher.A  "It would be hard to find any kind of [sound] engineer, especially a rock sound engineer, who had not had some degree of hearing loss," says Howard Rappaport, head sound engineer at Arlenea€™s Grocery on the lower East Side. Sometimes that means turning down the volume on a player whose levels are drowning out the other musicians, and the audiencea€™s hearing.
Generally I have one in my system at Arlenea€™s."When it comes to protection against dangerous noise exposure, Dr. They encourage lower volume levels, because the music doesna€™t compete with outside sounds such as traffic or subway trains. The app works for the iPod touch, but requires an iPhone headset or plug-in microphone.Wearing earplugs at live shows significantly reduces the risk of exposure to dangerous decibel levels.

Colonel Clearwater Dear Colonel Clearwater: What do you think about the Egyptian revolution?
Fundamentalists, in any religion, are usually a reaction to what the followers perceive as injustice. This doesn't mean Egyptian society and culture will necessarily change; it is still their culture and values. But in the long run any thing they make of it will be for their benefit (and not the benefit of the United States). Not by rampeling down the side of the building like Tom Cruise, but by sliding in with a tourist visa when it was not open to tourists. Clearwater: Republicans are betting that your readers don't care - that after all you did to beat them in 2006 and 2008, you're going to sit this one out. So they're whipping up their base by blocking help to unemployed workers, blocking summer jobs for teens, apologizing to the big companies that gave us the spill in the Gulf, and doing anything else they can do to stop progress. Yes, that Rand Paul, who says freedom means a private business can discriminate against African-Americans, and that President Obama holding polluters accountable for the mess in the Gulf is "un-American." And he's not alone. One candidate calls Social Security "horrible policy," while another has said that Americans will turn to "Second Amendment remedies" against Democrats. In New Hampshire, Paul Hodes is running neck-and-neck with his Republican opponent to take this seat for the Democrats. We've just started to turn our country around, passing healthcare reform, working to hold the big banks accountable for the Wall Street meltdown, pushing legislation to address climate change and end our addiction to oil.
The GOP is betting big that saying "no" and blocking progress is a path to success in November.What bet will you make? I think the Republicans should adopt as their emblem the condom because it more clearly reflects the party's political stance. A condom stands for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks, and gives one a sense of security while screwing others.
Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater, Last week, my friend and colleague, Congressman Anthony Weiner, did something very good, and very gutsy. Weiner's report showed that this firm, which sells gold coins, rips off its customers while benefiting directly from Beck's Chicken Little lunacy about the economy.
Every time Beck screams that there is an impending Obama-led government takeover of the economy and your savings aren't safe, he's making a sales pitch for this sleazy advertiser. You see, Beck's ratings have recently crashed, and most of his reputable advertisers have deserted him. Now that he's been exposed, Beck has spent the last week using his big media platform to attack and undermine Weiner - he even set up an attack website designed to damage Weiner's political standing. This collusion between big media, conservative commentators, and quack economics is a scam, but it is powerful if it remains unopposed.
And we need to support people like Weiner, who have the guts to go after right-wing lunacy at the source. Consider his statement: "I beg you, look for the words 'social justice' or 'economic justice' on your church Web site.
That oil disaster must be stopped, and a way must be found."I am not the original author of that sensible thought, but it has been my favorite definition of faith for a while.


While we have no way of certainty for moving past them, working to find a pathway that takes us beyond our doubts is the best option in my view. Then how come Congress starts each session with a prayer and the president is sworn in on a Bible?
Wants to KnowDear Wants to Know, As I said in an earlier reply, our countrys laws and structure are not based on the God of the Bible and the Ten Commandments, as Sarah Palin and others claim. So most of us do not work on Sunday and some businesses are not open for business on Sunday. So we have a religious custom of not working on Sunday and a secular custom of watching football on Sunday. The Constitution states that the president must take an oath, but it does not mention anything about a Bible. Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater, I understand you answer, but you say customs and traditions. Wants to Know MoreDear Wants to Know More, It is important to realize the difference between a custom and a tradition. It is a custom at my house that every year we watch football on Thanksgiving Day after we eat.
A tradition is a ceremony invented for the purpose of commemorating some historical event or to develop a sense of binding in a community or religious group.
Thanksgiving Day is a tradition in America that serves the purpose of reminding us of what we have from God for which to be thankful and is loosely based on the first harvest feast of the Pilgrims to celebrate their first year of survival in the New World.
It is a tradition; a ceremony we use to create a common bond among Americans by commemorating our heritage. When Congress meets, the first thing that happens is that the designated speaker calls the group together. Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater, I have just seen a video about an organization called the Council on Foreign Relations. This organization has members who were past Presidents and past Secretary of States of the United States, plus leaders in the fields of finance, industry, and other important positions in society. The spokesman on the video has concluded that this organization must be a part of world conspiracy to take over the world and put the entire world under a one-world socialist government and I agree with him. The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an organization of foreign policy experts, people concerned with international trade, prominent historians and writers, as well as others who are involved with foreign policy and international affairs. The CFR hold speaking events with question-and-answer periods which are usually televised on CSpan or other cable stations.
The speakers are usually world leaders, historians, writers, or others involved in international affairs. Some of the speakers have included such figures as Nelson Mandela, George Soros, Thomas Friedman, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Ronald Reagan. The journal, which I have subscribed to and read for over 25 years (plus you can buy it at the newsstands in Borders or Barnes and Noble) provides a forum for contrasting views and opinions regarding issues affecting foreign policy.
Some people have made a nice living scarring others with conspiracy theories about the CFR. My advice to you is to go to the store, buy and read their journal, watch their events on CSpan, and be wary of people who wish to sell you on the idea that other people are out to get you. Colonel Clearwater________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Dear Colonel Clearwater: Cancel my subscription to your liberal rage. And no matter how great the obstacles may seem, we must never stop our efforts to reduce the weapons of war. We must never stop at all until we see the day when nuclear arms have been banished from the face of this earth." Ronald Wilson Reagan, 1984 Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater: Liberals? I realize that there is collateral damage in war, but this is no less than cold-blooded genocide. They were shooting at insurgents who, upon later investigation, turned out to be civilians.
By saying the soldiers were shooting civilans implies that they knew they were shooting civiliansj. The real guilty party are those who convinced the American public that this war was necessary and just. Can you tell me how the "Smallest of the World's Leading Newspapers" managed to scoop "Florida's Best Newspaper?" Pedro TechadorDear Pedro, Always nice to hear from one of the Techadors.This was a WikiLeak scoop.
Palin:Your statement reminds me of what Republican Congressman, Devin Nunes said during the health care vote. And now you are bringing the ghosts back into this chamber." There is no polite way to get around this. Tea Party Patriots are morons when it comes to history, economics, and how to run a society. Much like the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan after World War I, the Tea Party Patriots are people who believe they have lost their privileged status in American society and wish to thwart others hopes for the American dream. Unfortunately, or fortunately (depending on which editor yells loudest) President Obama considers Wall Street, the banks, the Republicans in congress, and those with tea party policies as necessary players in the solution when they are, in fact, part of the problem. Both the Senior Citizens' Right to Work Act and the Family Medical Leave Act were passed this way.
