As someone who is suffering from a hearing loss caused by industrial noise, I am really worried that the generations behind me are walking into a life of isolation, continuous tinnitus, and embarrassment because they can no longer take part in social situations, because they are ignorant of the damage they have caused within their ears by listening to music too loud on their devices, or at Gigs Your ears are very fragile, they can take a little noise, however if they are subject to excessive noise, they WILL fail you, and once they do, you will not hear properly again.

When you see me wearing hearing aids, they DO NOT replace the hearing I have lost, only improve the hearing I have left, (Which isn’t much ,that’s why I have a Hearing Dog). I have been wearing Hearing Aids for 17 years, as I approach my 60th birthday, age could make my hearing deteriorate, and they may not help me in social situations, all because of noise I was subject to 40 years ago Below is taken from the NHS choice website, I suggest all parents read this, being deaf is not fun, its very distressing and it can be avoided.

2. Turn down the music Don't listen to your personal music player at very high volumes and never to drown out background noise. If the music is uncomfortable for you to listen to, or you can’t hear external sounds when you’ve got your headphones on, then it's too loud. It's also too loud if the person next to you can hear the music from your headphones

3. Use the 60:60 rule To enjoy music from your MP3 player safely, listen to your music at 60% of the maximum volume for no more than 60 minutes a day. All MP3 players bought within the EU have a 'smart volume' feature, so use it if you have one. It will help you regulate the volume.
