Musicians’ Hearing Loss and Prevention
Regardless of what type of music they play, musicians are constantly exposed to high-decibel sounds. Because of this high-decibel immersion, it’s crucial for musicians to wear proper ear protection to prevent hearing loss and tinnitus.
Tinnitus is commonly described as a ringing-in-the-ears sensation. This buzzing, whooshing or hissing is generally not caused by an external source and is often caused by hearing loss or other health issues. Seeking treatment from a hearing professional is essential in diagnosing and treating tinnitus.
