A highly alarming survey from New York reveals the prevalence of hearing damage from headphone users:

More people in the US are facing hearing problems due to blaring music from headphones of their mobile phones and MP3 players, a new study has warned.

Prolonged exposure to loud sounds can cause irreversible damage to the inner ear, resulting in tinnitus, hearing loss, or both, researchers said.

A New York City Health Department survey has found that nearly one out of four 18 to 44 year olds who frequently listen to loud headphones report hearing problems.

Preventing headphone induced hearing damage is fairly simple and basic. Use common sense!

To protect hearing when using headphones, one should reduce the volume, limit listening time, take regular breaks and never listen at maximum volume.
