Maybe you should think about taking a step away from the PA speaker next time you’re rocking out to your favourite band. The World Health Organization is saying that 1.1 billion people are at risk of damaging their hearing because of their listening habits…that’s one seventh of the world’s population!! According to WHO, just 28 seconds at a loud show could do your hearing some serious harm. They’ve also got some interesting stuff to say about people listening to their ipods every day. Take a look here.
After reading about both of those scenarios, it appears that I’m pretty much f***ed. If you’re in the same boat, might as well crank the band that holds the record for being the loudest of all time.
