Do you go out to clubs or concerts? Then this information is for you: How loud is loud?
Plug ’em is a British Tinnitus Association campaign that “aims to encourage wearing earplugs at gigs, festivals, clubs – basically anywhere you’re exposed to potentially dangerous noise levels.” They simply want to save millions of people from the pain and frustration of tinnitus and other hearing injuries. How? By educating the public about the dangers of loud noise, removing the stigma about wearing ear plugs, and encouraging bars and other venues playing loud music to give patrons free ear plugs.
No one is telling you not to go out to enjoy live music. Protect your ears so you can enjoy live music your entire life.
