Dutch medical experts have warned that modern young people are used to listening to excessively loud music for a long time, and hearing impairment is becoming more common. Experts call for people to attach great importance to this issue.
According to the Dutch “People’s Daily” report, the Dutch Leiden University Medical Center hearing expert Yang · Dratt said that in recent years, due to the love of listening to high-volume music, the number of people with hearing loss has increased year by year, the Netherlands “ld” The hearing problem generation is being formed. According to statistics, about 120,000 Dutch people are currently suffering from hearing loss due to the stimulation of high-volume music. This figure is still increasing at a rate of 20,000 per year.
Dratt pointed out that once hearing is impaired, it cannot be recovered, and young people must attach great importance to protecting their hearing. He said that because the quality of electronic products such as Walkman is constantly improving, playing music at high volume will not affect the sound quality, which makes some consumers more obsessed with high-volume music. Some people even enjoy the music with 130 decibels, and they feel uncomfortable.
In order to attract the attention of the society, the Dutch Hearing Foundation conducted a survey and invited six music column hosts from a well-known domestic radio station to test their hearing. The results were surprising: the hearing of the six people was damaged to varying degrees. One of them is only 29 years old, but his hearing is equivalent to 75 years old.
