Our ears are very delicate and frequent exposure to loud noises can be
harmful to them. The average decibel level that is considered safe for
our ears is 85. Anything above that can cause hearing damage. During a
concert or live shows, our ears are exposed to an average of 100 to 140
decibel. The longer you are exposed to that level of decibel increases
your risk of hearing loss. So if you love going to concerts and live shows,
make sure that your ears are protected.
Find a Seat Far from the Speakers
Most concert-goers prefer a seat or spot near the stage to be closer to
the band or artist. Concert venues usually have speakers on the sides
of the stage to create a more surround sound. If you want a seat near
the stage, just make sure that you keep a good distance between you and
Invest in Earplugs
It may seem uncool for someone to bring earplugs at concerts, but your
ears will thank you later. There are a variety of ear plugs that you can
buy at a drugstore or online. Some earplugs are even designed to fit in
your ear canal, making it impossible to notice by judging eyes. If you
are a musician, you may want to have a custom-made earplugs for longer wear.
Take a Break
If by some chance you find yourself seated right next to the speakers at
a concert, the best thing to do is take a break. Let your ears rest even
for just a few minutes outside. This may be hard especially if your favorite
artist is playing. So if you don’t want to miss any action, you
can try to step a few distance away from the speakers instead.
Attending a concert or live shows is always a great experience. Keeping
your ears protected and healthy means more concerts for you to go to!
