The severity of a hearing impairment is ranked according to the loudness (measured in decibels (dB)) a sound must be before being detected by an individual and the number of hours a person is exposed.
* for adults: between 25 and 40 dB
* for children: between 20 and 40 dB
A flute has 92 -103dB
Regular exposure to noise that exceeds 85 decibels â€œis considered to be dangerous. Consult your Doctor if your experiencing any hearing loss.
sorry you were saying?
no you really can't damage your ears but if it gets loud enough you can but if you have really sensitive ears then my advice is to wear ear plugs
I am def because of it
Flute is known to produce severe hearing damage, as of violin and piano. But i have been playing piano for awhile and im not too worried about it. Just make sure to measure the sound level. I wouldnt worry much. Hope that helps!
nope... i've been playing mine for 8 years... what can damage your hearing is the louder instruments in the band but i haven't had any issue with them,
It's surely possible. Wear ear plugs.
What the hell of course not lol....
I'm not an ear specialist or anything, but I think it's possible. I have sensitive ears, and playing flute usually doesn't bother me too much, but flutes usually sit in front of the saxophones and they do bother my ears. My ears are also bother me when I play piccolo.
If your ears hurt or ring while your playing, I would suggest that you use earplugs.
Long term, playing the flute could theoretically have an impact on your hearing, but playing or sitting next to a piccolo is much more likely to cause damage! I would doubt that 2 years of even intensive playing could cause damage, but if your are concerned about it it you could consider wearing earplugs, especially if you're playing high notes of are in an orchestra next to a piccolo! I'm no hearing expert, but I have been playing flute for 6 years and picc for a few less and I have really excellent hearing! I would think that going to gigs regularily or listening to your iPod too loudly is more likely to cause hearing damage than the flute!
Happy Flute Playing :)
The million flute players in the world are just fine.
Your MP3 player is much more likely to make you deaf.
I played a saxophone and piano for 10 years and am fine.
