How loud is it? [Hearing Health Infographic]
Dec 05, 2019
Every sound has a decibel measurement that helps determine your hearing ability and health, from a pin dropping to a balloon popping, from a fire cracker to a rocket launch.
While someone who can’t hear sounds on the lower end of the decibel scale may be experiencing hearing loss, someone who has been exposed to sounds on the higher end of this scale may have suffered harmful damage to their ears. Scroll below to see where common sounds fall on the decibel scale and schedule a hearing evaluation with Michigan Avenue to test your hearing health by measuring sensitivity to sounds at these varying decibel levels.
