The Noise Spectrum: Sounds You Didn’t Know Damage Your Hearing

Hearing is an important part of everyday life, yet most people don’t realize when they are damaging their ears. Causes of hearing loss include infections, aging, and brain injury, but one of the most common is noise exposure. Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) can develop after one occurrence of extreme noise exposure or after listening to very loud sounds over time. Everyone has tiny hair cells in their inner ear (cochlea) that vibrate and send an electric signal to the auditory nerve, allowing you to hear. Different groups of hair cells interpret different sound frequencies. Over time, if enough of these hair cells are damaged or broken, hearing loss results.

Tips on living with tinnitus

Tinnitus is described as a phantom auditory perception – perception of a sound in the absence of an external sound signal. This may affect one or both ears. A tinnitus diagnosis is often a surprise. Unfortunately, some patients often learn from their doctors that their “ringing-in-the-ears” is untreatable. This kind of information makes patients feel isolated and convinced that no one can understand what they are going through. Because tinnitus has many causes, there is no specific medication or general cure. Despite this, even for chronic tinnitus, there are ways to find relief and take control.
