Harmful Side Effects of Loud Music

Though it may be quite stylish to listen to music on a high note and it may even make you feel like dancing, however, researchers have pointed out some of the major side effects of listening to music on a higher note. Take a look:
- High Frequency Vibrations: As soon as the music begins, the outer ear catches the vibrations and then directs those inwards to the auditory canal to the eardrum. When these vibrations meet the eardrums, they vibrate the membrane and produce the sound. However, the louder the sound, the harder the eardrum is going to beat. This may, along the line cause extensive damage to the eardrum.
- Crashing of the Sound Waves: The movement of the ear drum forces the tiny bones found in the middle ear, the ossicles to move. With the oscillation of these ear ossicles, the fluid inside the cochlea moves, this contains more than 10,000 hair cells. However, if the music is loud, the waves tend to hit like a storm.
- Impairing the Brain Activity: The sound waves cause the hair cells to sway inside the ear. This movement of the hair cells causes the release of a neurotransmitter that washes all over the nerve fibres. However, with increased sound, the brain activity tends to be impaired, as it affects the concentration of the brain.
- Ringing Sensation: Listening to high volume music tends to cause the ringing sensation in the ears and sometimes, causes the brain to hallucinate and experience a ringing sensation, even when nothing is audible around.
No matter the high volume of music helps us to sway and dance the worries off, however, it should be ascertained that we are not exposed to high vibrations all the time as the damage caused to the ear can be irreparable.
