Noise induced hearing loss is permanent damage to the tiny hair cells in the ears, known as stereocilia, due to the loud sounds. It is caused by being around loud noise for long period of time. It can also occur when you are exposed to loud sound but for short period of time like in gun shot.
Noise induced hearing loss is the second most common cause of hearing loss.

Symptoms of Noise Induced Hearing Loss

A person may experience the following symptoms in mild cases or when your noise induced hearing loss starts;

  • Feeling pain in your ears after loud noise exposure.
  • When other people say, you're talking loudly or shouting.
  • Symptoms of tinnitus—ringing, whooshing, roaring or buzzing sounds in your ears.
  • You may experience diplacusis, or "double hearing," though this is rare.

Causes of Noise Induced Hearing Loss

The major cause of noise induced hearing loss is the over exposure to loud noises for long period of time or exposure to very loud noise for a short period of time (gun shot, explosion).
