    Can listening to music cause hearing loss?

    When you use earphones?

    Basically,i usually listen to my ipod everyday.For a good amount of hours.

    usually,with earbuds like t his


    However,my mom says that listening too much(esp with ear buds) can lead to eventual hearing loss.Is this true?Or is this just a myth?

    I usually put the volume at a medium setting.To the point where i can barely hear someone while listening,but the music isnt TOO loud.

    Aye if it's loud, you shouldn't have a problem if it's not blaring, dunno if ghose earphones are more harmful than normal ipod style earphones though cos they block out all the background noise

    Yes, they can. At certain volumes, they are considered as bad for you as industrial noise that requires people to wear ear muffs.

    You don't need as much volume as you'd think to get hearing loss. just bear that in mind.
    If you can barely hear someone while listening, I'd guess the volume is up around 85-90dB, which CAN cause hearing damage if you listen to that level at extended periods of time in a day. The average speaking voice is around 60-65dB from memory
    If you turn it down to around the level where it doesn't drown out people's voices so much to be safe.
    That way you'd definitely be below the threshold of volume that can cause hearing loss.

    It's pretty hard to say how loud as there are so many variants.

    As a general rule, if you think it's too loud, then it probably is. People beside you shouldn't be able to tell what you are listening to.

    Wow,you learn something new everyday.

    This is kinda scary,since if i didnt know this,i would continue to listen to music without hearing people+causing eventual health loss.

    all of this. also to compare.... having an ipod on full volume with earbuds is the same as being near a jackhammer w/o protection for your ears... so yes, you are causing damage if you listen for more than 20 mins or so at a time

    Yes brah. It causes sensironeural hearing loss, which is oftentimes due to damage to the cochlea (or more specifically the inner hair cells within them which do not 'vibrate' as well, and thus are not able to propogate action potentials). These action potential ascend to the cochlear nucleus via CN8, superior olive, lateral leminscus, inferior colliculus, medial geniculate body and finally to the auditory cortex. Usually with SNHL you will find that overtime higher pitch sounds will not be able to be heard as well. On an audiogram there will be no air-bone conduction gap. Cheers.
