We wear them at concerts and movies. Why do they have to be so loud?

I have always been sensitive to very loud noise. I used to go to concerts as a teen with tissue paper stuffed in my ears. I do worry now about ear phones and hearing loss. I love my MP3 player when I walk my dogs. But I do try to be aware at keeping the volume from being too loud.

Yes, I wear plugs for certain events with loud music. More importantly, I use ear muffs when running outdoor machinery: lawn mower, blower, string trimmer, chain saw..............

Do you use earplugs? Have you?

The more articles on hearing loss, I realize I should be using ear plugs for certain events.  I noticed at a local pub with live music that the staff were wearing ear plugs and thought that was a great idea.  Have you worn them? 

 

With so much hearing loss caused by noise - maybe you should...
