(HealthDay News) -- About 1 in 5 teens has some degree of hearing loss, says the American Osteopathic Association.
Experts think many instances could be linked to headphone use.
To avoid headphone-induced hearing loss, the association suggests:
- Listen to music at less than 60 percent of maximum volume.
- Listen to music for less than 60 minutes.
- Choose over-the-ear headphones over earbuds.
If you have ringing, hissing or buzzing in the ear, visit a doctor immediately, the association says.
