5 Ways To Protect Your Ears At Concerts
Concerts and festivals are great fun, but when the music is too loud, you are at risk of damaging your hearing. Here are a 5 ways to protect your ears at concerts and still enjoy the music.
1. Step away from the speakers!
Standing right next to the speakers might seem like a great idea at the time but it could do a lifetime of damage to your hearing. Try to stay as far away from the speakers as you can, the further away you are the quieter the sound.

4. Head to Outdoor Festivals
Going to outdoor festivals is much better for your ears than indoor festivals. Indoor concerts mean that the sound is contained within that room and there is no room for it to disperse. Try to stick to outdoor festivals.
5. Have a hearing detox
Give yourself a day of silence and rest your eardrums. You should allow 16 hours of rest for every two hours you are exposed to excessively loud noise.
