High volumes and excessive use of headphones pose a risk to your hearing.
Over time, the excessive stimulation of sound noises can lead to the so-called acquired hearing loss. Unlike congenital hearing loss, which is present from birth, acquired loss occurs in cases where a person is born with hearing within normal limits, but loses hearing capacity throughout life.
The auditory cells, which are irreplaceable, vibrate intensely when receiving a sound stimulus. Excessive vibration can shorten the lifespan of cells. The risk is increased in cases of headphones that emit sound output inside the ear and without acoustic isolation.
The Ministry of Health guides people to reduce the time they are exposed to excessive noise.
