Did you know your favorite recreational sports and activities could potentially be dangerous for your hearing? Although fun, certain activities can have an impact on your hearing ability, especially if you don’t wear the proper protection.
Motorcycling, dirt biking, ATV riding, motorboating, and hunting are some examples of activities that can negatively impact your hearing if you’re not careful.
How Can These Sports Affect My Hearing?
What these activities have in common is that they all require your ears to be exposed to a high level of sound. Any sound over 85 decibels can be dangerous for your hearing when exposed to on a regular basis. For motor activities, such as dirt biking, motorcycling, or motorboating, the constant roar of an engine in your ears can over time negatively affect your hearing. This can eventually lead to noise-induced hearing loss.
Hunting and rifle sports will expose your ears to high impact sounds of 130 decibels, which after one time can cause permanent hearing loss.
