Head phones and Loud Music and your ears

Many older children and adolescents enjoy listening to loud music through headphones,Parents should be aware of the potential danger to hearing that these present.

The risks

At normal volumes headphones present no risk.But your child may be tempered to turn the volume up-for example ,to exclude external noise and could permanently damage his or her hearing.The sound need not be painfully loud to damage hearing,so the fact that your child insists that the volume is not uncomfortably high is not a reliable way of judging what level is safe.A useful guideline is that if others in the room can hear the music when your child is wearing headphones.it is likely that the volume is too high.portable cd plyers and ipods,mobiles phone(headphones) may also increase the risk of road accidents if used when walkingor cycling in traffic,because they reduce awareness of what is going on around you.
