Consider a “hearing detox” after prolonged exposure to noise above 100 decibels (e.g. power drill, jackhammer or motorbike) for more than 2 hours.
Your ears need at least 16 hours of “rest” to prevent permanent hearing damage. If it is impossible to avoid excessive sound exposure due to work, always use protective gear.
