10   NORMAL HEARING


110 dB     Regular exposure of more than 1 minute risks permanent hearing loss.

100 dB     No more than 15 minutes unprotected exposure is recommended.

  90 dB     Any prolonged exposure above 90 dB may cause gradual hearing loss.


When people have their hearing examined by an audiologist, pitch sounds between 250-8,000 Hz are routinely measured. These are tested because they are the most important for understanding speech.


More recently, some researchers have begun to look at how noise may affect hearing for the very high pitch sounds- those between 9,000 & 18,000 Hz, known as the extended high frequencies.


Research has found that some people who are exposed to loud noise have reduced hearing in the extended high frequencies, but not in the more conventional (250-8,000 Hz) frequency range. Based on these findings, it has been suggested that a noise induced hearing loss may be detectable at an earlier stage by testing hearing in the extended high frequencies.
