Being exposed to noise is harmful to your hearing. One in three Americas who have hearing loss have developed their loss as a result of damaging noises. The best ways, other than hearing protection, to protect your hearing from damaging noises are to turn down the volume or stay away from the noise source. If these are not options, hearing protection should be worn. How do you know if a noise is too loud? If you find yourself having to shout to hold a conversation from 3 feet away, the noise is too loud. If the noise is so loud that it is causing your ears to ring or your hearing to seem muffled, the noise is too loud. If the noise causes pain to your ears, the noise is too loud.
