Majority of youngsters, well now-a-days even the adults, enjoy the beats played by their headphones. Headphones are usually looked upon as a source, which will take away all away from stress, bring the mind at ease. However, this loud music played by these headphones can ultimately make you temporarily deaf.
Experts from the University of Leicester have provided with certain proofs, which highlight that high volumes of these headphones can harm and ultimately damage the outer layer of nerve cells.
Researchers suggest that in case the volume of earphones or headphones or music players are increased to a high level, then the noise levels generated is similar to that by a jet.
It has been clear that a noise, which is more than 110 decibels, can cause temporary deafness and tinnitus, is perception of sound within human ear in absence of corresponding external sounds.
This has been the first ever study, which has tried to highlight the adverse effects of noise on the underlying cells. The study has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Dr. Martine Hamann, Lead Author, explained: "Cellular mechanisms underlying are likely to bring a very significant healthcare benefit to a wide population. The work will help prevention as well as progression into finding appropriate cures for hearing loss".
