Mobile and phones and players with high volume through headphones will make you quiet down
Good news for parents whose kids don't take their headphones out of their ears. Now all players, like the already mentioned iPod, will be released with special built-in decibel limiters. From now on, their level will not exceed the safe 80-85. Now, some players are capable of playing music at the level of 120 decibels, which is equivalent to the noise of a plane taking off. This noise damages your hearing.
According to the latest polls, more than two-thirds of teenagers continue to listen to music at the ultimate level. It is not common for young people to think about their own he alth at all, so what can we say about a technique that can easily plant hearing?
According to the European Union's Scientific Committee on Emerging Human He alth Risks, one in 10 music player owners is at risk of permanent hearing loss. There are already more than 10 million people across Europe.
True, it has not yet been established when the new rules to limit the volume in the players will come into force. This is because setting new technological standards always takes a long time. It is only known that the built-in limiters can only be removed by adult gadget owners. They will be warned about the possible he alth hazards of this decision.
