Use earphones to avoid deafness

As per new study, you could be damaging your hearing ability by listening to iPod while gyming.

According to University of Alberta researcher Bill Hodgetts, people should consider the volume levels in their earphones while working up a sweat. Hodgetts, assistant professor in the Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology at the Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine, says his research has found that exercising in a gym often prompts people to turn up the volume to potentially unsafe levels for the ear. And in order to solve the problem, Hodgetts says, get better earphones, those that ‘seal’ the ear canal, acting as an earplug and thus reducing background noise.
