Do you know, there are 1.1 billion people estimated to be at risk of noise induced hearing loss around the world. 3.9 million adults have audiograms that are consistent with hearing loss resulting from exposure to loud noise. 50% of young people listen to their music or other devices too loudly and 5.4 million people, about 17% of workers reported exposure to hazardous noise in the workplace.

Loud noise will cause damage to our delicate hearing. They will damage cells and membranes of our hearing organ, which is the cochlea. Listening to loud noise for a long time can overwork hair cells in the ear, which can cause these cells to die. The hearing loss progresses as long as the exposure continues. Harmful effects might continue even after noise exposure has stopped, causing hearing to deteriorate.
