5.It can leave you vulnerable:
It’s no secret that deaf people are among the list of vulnerable people in society. You don’t want to be the next person on that list do you? If you suffer from severe hearing loss you will be vulnerable in many ways. For example it may leave you oblivious to dangers in the house. You might be sitting in the living room watching T.V with the volume on loud so you can hear it easily. All this time the smoke alarm could be screaming for you to get back in the kitchen as you left the oven on and burnt your dinner. Another example could be that you are lying in bed at night while a burglar is downstairs taking all your valuables. You almost certainly wouldn’t hear a single thing and it could leave you in a life threatening position.
So how exactly does the loss of hearing take place?
Like anything in life, if you use it too much or expose it too often it will ware out. Your ears are simply damaged by loud music as it damages your delicate hair cells in the inner ear. These cells are used to convert any mechanical vibrations to electric signals. After this conversion is completed the brain can then interpret it as sound. If your inner ear hair cells are permanently damaged then they will no longer be able to do their job properly leaving you with no hearing.
These are the reasons you should never listen to music with max volume and hopefully now you will be much more aware of the possible vulnerabilities. You might feel good at the time but you need to look at the bigger picture. There are ways around this problem so stick to the general rule of keeping the sounds at 60%. Along with this buy yourself a decent pair of DJ headphones as they block out all surrounding sounds around you. This means that you won’t need to have your music quite as loud as you can hear it easier anyway. Remember that the loss of hearing isn’t completely curable and you only have one pair of ears. Take care of them as much as possible and don’t let a pair of standard MP3 headphones ruin your life!
