Above 85db is Keep the Sound’s Danger Zone

Our campaign aims to raise awareness about the risks of listening to music at damaging sound levels.

Our Soundheads give a personal reading of the sound level YOU listen at, so YOU can use the Scorecard to learn about how safe or unsafe YOUR listening habits are!

How does it work?

Our Soundheads measure the sound level you listen at. Sound is measured in decibels(dB).
A decibel is the unit used to measure the intensity or power of sound waves.

 

 

Green Zone:

It's fine –
enjoy the music!

Orange Zone:

Could be a little too loud –
reduce the volume to be on the safe side.

 

Red Zone:

Definitely too loud –
you are damaging your ears.
Danger Zone: Warning –
Turn down now!


Why 20 seconds?

How many times have you listened to a piece of music that starts off quietly but ends with a loud crescendo? The volume levels on a typical music track vary considerably. So that a short burst of loud music doesn't give a false result, the head takes an average measurement over 20 seconds.
