Back in 2019, Apple launched the research. The app built around data collected from the iPhone and Apple Watch (naturally) as a recent effort by an organization trying to take a more serious approach to user health. The app debuted through four studies: Heart Health, Women’s Health, Movement and Hearing. Today, the University of Michigan School of Public Health, as well as the University, are releasing the results, conducted a day before World Hearing Day. Hearing loss is something that companies want to tackle, because no small part of it – and growing – is involved in the headphones department.
Headphones have certainly become a common source of hearing loss in the end as technology has lengthened. The company has also created noise level readings on its mobile operating systems to provide higher environmental notifications. This information has also created in the health application, which displays both the headphone level and the environmental noise level – the latter can be a subtle source of hearing loss.
According to a study of “thousands” of participants in the United States, a quarter of those involved were more involved in collisions than the WHO’s daily limit of environmental noise exposure. 50% of those surveyed worked or worked in a higher environment. The numbers have remained reasonably high, even as many or most of them have shifted to home setting during epidemics. “Even during this epidemic, when many people are sitting at home, we still see 25% of our participants exposed to high-environmental noise exposure,” said Rick Neitzel, associate professor at the University of Michigan, in a statement attached to the news. “The results of this study can improve our understanding of potentially harmful exposures and help people identify how they can actively protect their hearing.”
Ten percent of those already surveyed exceeded the recommended limit for weekly headphone exposure, while a quarter reported to be ringing in their ears several times a week.
