Anyone can suffer from hearing loss but people that are exposed to loud environments daily, such as musicians, are at a higher risk. This is why, when listening to music, it is recommended that the volume be turned down a little or a volume limiter should be used.
Musicians like the German composer and pianist, Ludwig van Beethoven, started losing his hearing when he was in his early 20s. He created most of his work long after he had become completely deaf. Other artists including Neil Young and will.i.am suffer from tinnitus and say that music helps them deal with the ringing in their ears. Chris Martin from Coldplay also has tinnitus and wears earplugs to keep it from worsening. Danny Elfman stopped performing on stage because of his hearing loss and tinnitus and became a composer. You might know him for composing The Simpsons’ theme song!
These are just a few examples of how loud music and not using the right hearing protection equipment can affect healthy hearing. Listen to what your ears are telling you before it is too late. Protect your hearing from loud decibel levels!
