Normally, you don’t think or worry about your hearing - until something affects it.
Those who suffer from hearing loss tend to feel isolated from others. This can cause anxiety and depression.
When you first experience hearing loss, it can affect the higher pitched sounds. When you reach middle age, the upper range of your hearing abilities can decline between 12,000 to 14,000 Hz.
A human’s audible range depends on how high, low, and loud the sound is. We use Hertz (Hz) to measure the pitch of sounds, and decibels (dB) to measure how loud the sound can reach.
When it comes to the pitch of sound, a human’s hearing abilities begin at 20Hz and end at 20,0000Hz. Our hearing is the most sensitive between the 2,000 and 5,000Hz range.
The safest levels of sound fall between 0 to 85dB. Over the course of time, any sounds that pass the 85dB threshold can harm your hearing health.
