A WARNING ABOUT LOUD MUSIC AND OTHER LOUD NOISE.
Tinnitus is the term for hearing sounds that come from inside the body, rather than from an outside source.
It is often described as 'ringing in the ears', although several sounds can be heard, including buzzing, whistling, grinding and humming.
Some people may hear sounds similar to music or singing, and others hear noises that beat in time with their pulse.
Some notice their hearing is not as good as it used to be, and they are more sensitive to everyday sounds.
More than half of all troops returning from combat zones with some sort of damage to their hearing.
But now 20,000 members of the military are using smart earbuds that reduce the high-level impulse noises, all while heightening very low signature types sounds for 'super hearing' abilities.
Called Tactical Communication and Protective System, this military device is also set to be used in headsets for everyone from construction workers to music fans.

My Tinnitus was caused by jet engine noise, especially from B-52s back in the late 50s and early 60s. Unfortunately, back then, we had no idea the extent of the damage caused by exposure to loud noises. It isn’t just the tinnitus, as if that isn’t bad enough, it’s also the non-reversible loss of hearing which gets worse with each passing year as you grow older.
Young people today are unnecessarily exposing themselves to damaging noise levels on a daily basis with loud music. If you or your children listen to loud music, please read the article from the above link.
