Consider wearing hearing protection such as disposable earplugs, and take regular breaks from loud environments. Also, remember to wipe down your ear plugs after each use to prevent infections caused by outside germs.
A good song or a loud environment can tempt us to turn up the volume on our music players. Unfortunately, listening to music too loudly through our earphones can cause permanent damage to our hearing. In fact, hearing loss is on the rise in teens and young adults. Keep your volume at no more than 60% of the maximum. Some music players can physically apply this setting too and warn you if you try to exceed unsafe listening levels.
