Why shouldn’t you listen to very loud music? Loud sounds and constant noise damage the sensitive hair cells inside the ear, so they cease to distinguish sounds. The most vulnerable are those that react to high-frequency sounds — for example, whistling — which are important for understanding speech. Damage to these hairs accelerates with age, which is why elderly folk often have to ask people to repeat themselves. But among those who work in noisy conditions, or listen to loud music with earbuds or in-ear monitors, there are many people whose hearing has deteriorated much earlier. In a noisy place? Use earplugs. Like listening to music, audiobooks, and podcasts? Choose over-ear headphones, whose source of sound is located outside the ear canal. Take care of your ears starting while you are young.
