BHI: Press – Rock concerts may put teens’ hearing at risk

We have known about this for years, but this study used distortion product otoacoustic emissions testing to confirm a change in cochlear function.  Most people who attend a loud concert experience a shift in hearing with increased tinnitus just like a typical factory worker.  The shift in hearing is usually temporary, but over time the inner ear damage can become permanent.  Use protection at loud concerts!
