3AW: Using headphones right now? Listen to this

At least 1 in 10 people have their headphones up TOO LOUD. Are you one of them? Bupa audiologist Simon Davis spoke to 3AW what it does to your ears.

“It’s very damaging … because the damage is permanent,” Simon Davis, audiologist manager for Bupa told 3AW.

“It’s one of those things that creeps up on you.”

So how loud is too loud?

“It’s about what we call the “dose”, and the dose is the volume over a time,” Mr Davis told Justin and Kate.
