Will earbuds ruin my child’s hearing?
Researchers say that 20% of children have permanent hearing loss because they were exposed to loud noise.
The Hearing Health Foundation reported that.
Still, according to Dr. Robert Dobie, “Many children lose hearing ability simply because they always hear loud noise even during recreational time.”
Earpuds are not always safe–especially when they play music loudly, especially to block out background noise, long loud noise can cause hearing loss.
But if buds stay a reasonable volume, there is not much evidence that they offer any unique risks.
