BRUSSELS – European scientists warned that many teenagers across Europe could suffer permanent hearing loss after five years if they listen to MP3 players at too high a volume for more than five hours a week.
The risk for hearing damage depends on sound level and exposure time.
If they listened for only five hours a week at more than 89 decibels, they would already exceed EU limits for noise allowed in the workplace.
