Investigation of the Loud Music Exposure Hearing Loss

Document Thumbnail

Until now, exposures to loud music are not regarded as occupational hazards. However, investigations indicate severe hearing loss resulting from long-term listening to loud music.

A hypothesis is presented explaining why loud music causes PTS increase among some listeners, while exposures to similar sounds may be harmless to other people.
