For my final post I wanted to discuss what tinnitus is. I decided to talk about this because I'm in the sound group for our final project. This condition usually occurs after a concert experience. After being exposed to the loud music for hours, you experience muffled ringing after its called tinnitus. This ringing being heard following a concert happens when loud noise damages the very fine hair cells that line your ear. Loud exposure to sounds over 85 decibels can cause hearing loss and concerts tend to be around 115 decibels or more depending on the spot you're in. The louder the sound is, the shorter amount of time it takes to lose hearing. The ringing following a concert is constant and sounds like buzzing or roaring, but tinnitus usually resolves a few hours or days after being exposed to loud music. It's important to watch out where you're standing at concerts or any place with live bands. Standing close to a speaker can damage your hearing indefinitely if it's loud enough.
