Ear plugs are considered among the greatest inventions in history. People from all walks of life can appreciate a good pair of ear plugs. College students love them for their ability to block out the distracting sounds of a roommate’s loud music while cramming for finals week. Travelers love how ear plugs will tune out the distraught two year old screaming two rows behind them on the airplane because he can’t understand why his ears are hurting. There are so many circumstances in life that warrant the use of a good pair of ear plugs. You never know when you might want them, so it is a good idea to have a pair handy at all times.
Sometimes ear plugs are used for convenience, but more often than not they are used out of necessity for hearing protection
. Hunters use ear plugs to protect their ears from the damaging effects of gun fire. If you’ve ever spent much time with any old time hunters, it doesn’t take long to realize that many of them don’t hear very well. Most old time hunters never did much back in their day to protect their hearing, except maybe for stuffing a little cotton in each ear. They simply didn’t realize that the report from even one shot can do long-term damage to the ears. Even relatively mild rounds such as a .22 long rifle, while not painful, can do serious damage to one’s hearing.
Gun fire is particularly dangerous to your hearing because you are holding the source of this particularly loud sound in extremely close proximity to your ear. As a general rule, noise may damage your hearing if you are at arm’s length and have to shout to make yourself heard. When noise is too loud, it begins to kill the nerve endings in the inner ear
. Prolonged exposure to loud noise destroys nerve endings. As the number of nerve endings decreases, so does your hearing. There is no way to restore life to dead nerve endings; the damage is permanent. The longer you are exposed to a loud noise, the more damaging it may be. Also, the closer you are to the source of intense noise, the more damaging it is.
