Health Tip: Headphones and Hearing Loss

(HealthDay News) -- About 1 in 5 teens has some degree of hearing loss, says the American Osteopathic Association.

Experts think many instances could be linked to headphone use.

To avoid headphone-induced hearing loss, the association suggests:

  • Listen to music at less than 60 percent of maximum volume.
  • Listen to music for less than 60 minutes.
  • Choose over-the-ear headphones over earbuds.

If you have ringing, hissing or buzzing in the ear, visit a doctor immediately, the association says.
