Hearing sounds

It may be possible to hear sounds in the future that are currently inaudible. Recent research found that just vibrating the ear bones could create a type of shortcut for sounds to enter the brain. This could boost hearing power.

Underwater hearing

Divers have enhanced hearing underwater. Scientists aren’t sure why but have speculated that it could be the result of sounds traveling directly through the bones to the brain.

Smartphone Users

High-frequency hearing loss is now more common in smartphone users with their dominant ear typically experiencing a significant loss over the ear they use less.

Babies and hearing

Sound moves at 1,130 feet per second. Newborns’ hearing is not fully developed, but they hear high-pitched voices best. The main reason for hearing loss is exposure to very loud sounds (85 decibels or more).

Smartphone use & tinnitus

Regularly using a mobile phone can also increase the risk for tinnitus. Recent research found tinnitus was 70% more likely in those who used their cell phone for an average of 10 minutes a day. Tinnitus is a constant ringing or buzzing in the ear that is not caused by external noise.

Dogs hearing range

Humans can hear sounds roughly 50-100 feet away. Alternatively, your dog can hear sounds as far as a quarter-mile (.40 km) away (or more).
