How can you protect your hearing from loud noise?

Noise-induced hearing loss can be prevented with the use of hearing protection devices (HPDs) and in limiting your exposure to loud sound levels.

HPDs, such as earbuds, earmuffs, and earplugs, help to reduce the sound intensity, though, they do not block out sound completely. 

There are several different types of HPDs available, and they have different noise reduction ratings (NRR). The NRR is the standard rating system for all HPDs, and it is measured in decibels (dB), ranging from 0 dB to 35 dB, indicating the amount of potential protection the device provides. The higher the NRR the better the protection will be.
