Hockey game attendance would be exciting enough as this is the Vegas Golden Knights’ inaugural season. Add to the fact that they are currently the top of the Western Conference leaderboard, and you have a recipe for excitement!
As you attend our fabulous Golden Knights’ games, along with bringing your best noisemakers and group cheers, you should also be taking steps to protect your hearing. The T-Mobile Arena is a spectacular site and as it fills with excited event-goers, the noise can quickly add up.
If you aren’t sure what you need, you’re in luck. As your local hearing specialists, we have some advice on how to protect your hearing.
At a recent Vegas Golden Knights game, we wanted to check what the average decibel level was at the game. Some people may be surprised by the fact that the average decibel level was 102 dB, and it wasn’t even taken during a time when everyone was cheering!
Many people believe they will know when situations become dangerously loud but they have underestimated how good our hearing is at adapting to noisy circumstances.
Long-term exposure to noise starting at 85 dB can damage your hearing. At the levels you are going to encounter at a Vegas Golden Knights game and likely at other indoor sporting events, you are in danger of permanently damaging your hearing if you don’t take steps to counter it.
There are a few simple precautions you can take to protect your hearing while enjoying a sporting event.
To ensure that your hearing is in top shape, you should be sure to receive regular comprehensive hearing exams. The sooner any hearing damage is caught, the easier it will be to keep the rest of your remaining hearing intact.
