Tinnitus 911

by Jerome Princy (2020-04-09)

While listening to music is a Tinnitus 911 Revisión big part of most people's lives at some point--usually up through the mid-20s--there are some for whom the crackle of vinyl or the accessibility of mp3 files is just that much more alluring. The ease with which it is now possible to lug around thousands and thousands of songs on a single device is making mobile music listeners out of even lukewarm music fans, while those diehards are practically jumping with joy at being able to digitize entire collections of obscure 78s for sharing with friends. While in the past listening parties were a more popular form of getting together and enjoying music with friends, the approach to hearing new sounds now is more oriented on the dance floor or in one's headphones. And unfortunately, hearing loss is becoming more and more of an issue for younger generations, especially amongst those who are listening to music for hours on end, particularly on headphones. Thankfully, while permanent hearing damage is difficult to reverse, taking a few precautions can seriously halt the destruction. Sometimes, parents get a lot of criticism for telling their children that music sounds louder today than when they were growing up. The fact is, a lot of the times mom and dad are right. Producers mix records louder than in the past, labels are known for turning to the "full volume on the chorus" trick for making lackluster songs sound a lot cooler, and studio tricks for fuller bass and crunchier guitars also add decibels. Add to that the fact that a lot of music lovers are listening to songs through earbud headphones, which put the sound directly into the ear canal with much less of a buffer zone, and it's a disaster waiting to happen for long-term hearing problems.
