10 Common noises that can cause permanant hearing loss

What Counts as Excessive Noise?

Frightening fact: Hearing loss can occur after a one-time noise exposure at 120 decibels, such as gunfire, or continuous noise exposure to dangerous levels of 85 decibels or above over a prolonged period of time. It's important to know what levels are safe in order to protect your hearing:

110-140 decibels:
Rock concert or jet engine
Nail gun
Ambulance siren
Home stereo speakers at maximum volume

* Just 1 minute of exposure to noises at this level can result in permanent hearing loss, according to the National Institutes of Health.

85-100 decibels:
Garbage truck
Power mower

* Continual exposure to noises in this range can cause permanent hearing loss.
