Nowadays a lot of people are working remotely, and they are attending meetings, seminars, webinars, and a few summits and while attending these most of the people are using headphones. Even when it was free time we often use headphones for listening to music that we love without disturbing nearby people.
The increased use of headphones is a factor leading to hearing loss, an expert warns. Leading health organizations estimated that more than 375 million+ people are severely disabled by the condition. With our world becoming more and more noisy thanks to everything from mobile phones to traffic, it's essential that we do everything we can to protect our hearing.
Be aware of the noise around you and protect your ears:
In high noise environments like the gym, consider using foam ear protectors or noise-canceling headphones.
Beware of wind noise:
This can give you tinnitus, a condition that leaves sufferers with a permanent ringing, humming, or buzzing in the ears. Motorcyclists, however, are at risk the most. They should use specialist motorcyclist earplugs to reduce wind noise down to a less harmful level.
Don't use cotton buds:
Don't push anything in your ear. The wax there is part of a natural cleaning process. If there is a significant buildup of wax that affects your hearing, consult a doctor about having it syringed out.
Get a good night's sleep:
Sound is very bad for your shut-eye. Make your environment as quiet as possible.
