Abstract

Exposure to highly amplified music among listeners has not been demonstrated as a serious threat for hearing. However, risk assessment for the professionals involved in the production and reproduction of highly amplified music has, as yet, received little attention. The present investigation aimed at characterizing the sound exposure within different professional categories, to estimate their risk of hearing loss and to explore the possibilities of limiting such a potential risk
