The World Health Organisation (WHO) is worried that 1.1 billion teenagers and people their twenties and early thirties are damaging their hearing listening loud music. It says nearly half the young people middle- and high-income countries risk hearing loss because the "unsafe use" personal music players, including smartphones. Loud music nightclubs, bars and sporting events also increases the risk. The WHO recommends a safe limit of listening to music just one hour a day. The WHO director injury prevention, Dr Etienne Krug, told the BBC that: "What we're trying to do is raise awareness an issue that is not talked about enough." He said hearing loss is easily preventable.

Dr Krug said keeping the volume and limiting the use personal audio devices to less than one hour a day would save a lot people's hearing. However, he also said that, "even an hour can be too much if the volume is too loud". Ralph Holme, a biomedical researcher, explained how loud noise can damage ears. He said: "Loud sounds damage your hearing killing thousands little hair cells the inner ear. The cells detect different pitches sound through vibration…but they are very fragile and if they vibrate too much due to loud sounds too long, they get damaged and die." He warned that: "The problem is they don’t grow back and the ear can no longer detect sound."
