Whether you're watching your favorite team at the stadium or your local hangout, noise levels on and away from the field can sideline your hearing health – and even lead to permanent damage. A colorful series of sports-inspired infographics looks at the impact of game day noise on the hearing health of fans, players and even referees.
Cheering fans can raise noise levels in NFL football stadiums to ear-damaging levels. The average volume is estimated to be in the mid-90 decibel range, about the level of power tools.
Noise levels during NFL playoffs at popular sports bars can average in the 80 decibel range, about the noise level of an alarm clock.
How to tackle the noise? Invest in inexpensive ear plugs to protect hearing from game noise. At just under $3.50 for a package of ten pairs, it's about the best bargain fans are likely to see this season.
