Continue Enjoying Loud Sound Spaces
With sound systems regularly peaking at 100 decibels or louder, it’s time to take the volume into our own hands.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, the average human can safely listen to 100 decibels for 15 minutes without incurring hearing loss.
For every three decibels the volume is lowered, the amount of safe listening time doubles. For example:
100db = 15 minutes of safe listening
97db = 30 minutes of safe listening
94db = 60 minutes of safe listening
91db = 2 hours of safe listening
88db = 4 hours of safe listening
So if the music volume is 100 decibels and you wear your HearDrops – they turn the volume down by 12 decibels.
You are now listening at 88 decibels and can be safely in that sound space for up to 4 hours without damaging your hearing.
No morning ringing or temporary deafness!
