MP3 Players Cause Hearing Loss?


Posted October 13, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

There's an old saying in rock and roll circles that says: "if it's too loud, you're too old, man!" But maybe that should be changed to: "If it's too loud, you haven't been the victim of hearing loss yet!"

A study from the Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks says that listening to a portable music player too loud could cause hearing loss later in life. In fact, if you turn up your headphones loud, you could be subjecting yourself to louder sounds than would be legal if you worked in a factory.

“Regularly listening to personal music players at high-volume settings when young,” the report said, “often has no immediate effect on hearing but is likely to result in hearing loss later in life.”

So we'd like to change that old saying to: "If it's too loud, turn it down, man!"
