Ear AgeAugust 14, 2013 at 12:11 pm | Posted in Health, Media, Science | Leave a comment
As you may know, our ears loose their sensitivity to the outer ends of the audible spectrum with age. This can be exacerbated by noise extremes and loud music, such as I enjoyed in my youth playing drums in an acid rock band. As the principle goes, if your ears are ringing afterwards, you’ve done some damage. The longer the ringing, the more hearing you’ve blown off.
Here’s a little test for your ears, best done with headphones. Although they didn’t help in my case. 😉
