Summer Hearing Tips

Outdoor music concerts are one of the joys of summertime but they can also damage hearing. Pack a few earplugs the next time you head out to a concert or show and enjoy the music!

Swimming and outdoor sports are a great way to keep the body in shape but they can sometimes cause problems for the ears. Wearing earplugs can keep water out of the years and prevent possible ear infections from occurring.

Fireworks are almost a certainty for July festivities but they can harm hearing. Explosions from fireworks average 160 dBA and long or repeated exposure to sounds at or above 85 dBA can cause hearing loss. Protect your ears with earplugs or minimize exposure.
