There are many different factors that can lead to hearing loss in teens and young adults. Age, head trauma, genetics or a disease have always been among the leading reasons. However, today, the leading cause of hearing loss is noise.
According to an article by the Chicago Tribune and research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 40 million Americans ages 20 to 69 have hearing loss and damage from everyday loud noise, including heavy traffic, noisy restaurants, rock concerts, sporting events and loud music via earbuds. Also, about 17 percent of teens between the ages of 12 to 19 suffer from noise-induced hearing loss in one or both ears. The research shows that this generation will have long-lasting consequences from noise exposure that damaged their hearing.
Many teens and young adults don’t know that they could be causing harm to their hearing and that they could already be suffering from noise-induced hearing loss. They are also unaware that hearing loss is permanent. Once hearing is lost there’s no way to get it back.
To avoid long-term hearing loss symptoms, it’s important for teens and young adults to take protective measures. Our Audiologists recommend investing in hearing protection products and equipment to avoid the consequences of hearing loss.
