SHOTHUNT | Whistling in the ear, annoying buzzing and tinnitus of various types: talk to a middle-aged hunter and you will see that he will know perfectly what you are referring to. Tens of years of experience, and hundreds and hundreds of shots fired can compromise hearing health of hunters.

Indeed, a rifle shot far exceeds the decibels (dB) that our auditory nerve can withstand. We are talking about a sound level of about 160 dB, a good 40 dB more than the maximum that can be reached, and definitely beyond the so-called pain threshold (at 130 dB, beyond which sound can make us feel real physical pain ).
Over time, therefore, the auditory nerve becomes more and more damaged, to the point of considerably lowering our ability to hear or even depriving ourselves of it altogether. But all is not lost. If that's true noise deafness it cannot be cured, it is also true that but it can be prevented and prevent it from degenerating if it is already in progress. How? Using hearing protectors more adequate.
