UPDATED: "How Loud Is Too Loud?" Bookmark
Did you know that prolonged exposure to any noise above 85 decibels can cause gradual hearing loss? Our colorful "How Loud Is Too Loud?" bookmark—updated with some of the more common sounds we hear—is a fun and useful way to become more aware of the noise levels that put our hearing at risk, and the things we can do to protect our hearing.
Order online or call the NIDCD Information Clearinghouse toll-free at (800) 241-1044 or (800) 241-1055 (TTY), or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
