Hearing Protection

Exposure to noise levels of 85 decibels or higher for a continuous 8-hour duration necessitates the use of hearing protection. It may not seem remarkably loud upon consideration, but common examples like the idle noise of a bulldozer during a single day of construction work, or even lawn mowers, can reach approximately 90 decibels and pose a risk to your hearing. Taking proactive measures to safeguard your hearing health is crucial in these circumstances.

Hearing loss is increasing across all demographics, driven by factors such as rising noise pollution and changing consumer habits like prolonged use of earbuds.

¬†Regardless of the underlying cause, untreated hearing loss can have significant implications for overall health. That’s why Allen Audiology advocates for improved hearing protection.

Fortunately, there have been significant advancements in hearing protection in recent years. Not only are there excellent and affordable options available to safeguard your hearing, but there are also specialized types of protection tailored to specific needs. Whether you’re a musician, construction worker, or first-responder, you can now find hearing protection that won’t compromise your ability to perform your tasks effectively.
