The aim of this study was to examine the music exposure and hearing of disc jockeys (DJs). We conducted personal noise dosimetry on 30 DJs and interviewed them regarding their hearing and their job. We conducted pure-tone audiometry, and transient and distortion product otoacoustic emissions before their exposure to music during their work. This first test was preceded by a period of at least 12 hours without exposure to music or noise. We repeated the pure-tone audiometry and otoacoustic… 
Modification of otoacoustic emissions following ear-level exposure to MP3 player music
TLDR
Results for the exposure conditions explored indicate that changes in otoacoustic emissions may precede the development of music-induced hearing threshold shifts, and post-exposure shifts in SSOAE frequency and level were highly variable in individuals identified withSSOAEs.
Percepção e o impacto da música na audição de integrantes de banda militar
TLDR
The studied musicians were exposed daily to high sound pressure levels, which might cause health problems, such as tinnitus and hearing loss, although the subjects considered the intensity of music as loud, they did not take prevention measures during rehearsals.
Exposure to excessive sounds during orchestra rehearsals and temporary hearing changes in hearing among musicians.
TLDR
Musicians' hearing threshold levels were higher (worse) than expected for the equivalent non-noise-exposed population, and Orchestral musicians are at risk of hearing loss due to their professional activities, even at exposures to orchestral noise less than the limit values for occupational noise.
Limiares auditivos em músicos militares: convencionais e altas frequências
TLDR
Exposure to music caused permanent hearing impairment, showing differences in relation to the non-exposed group, registered in conventional audiometry and at high-frequency audiometry.
CONCERTS ON AUDITORY FUNCTION
The purpose of this paper is to determine the exact dangers of leisure music to society, as peoples’ hearing can be negatively impacted by excessive exposure to music, in terms of both duration and
[Assessment of temporary hearing changes related to work as a bartender].
TLDR
People working as bartenders represent a professional group with an increased risk of hearing loss and raising awareness of this fact and implementing hearing protection programs in this group of workers is urgently needed.
Screening for Noise Induced Hearing Loss among Professional Disc-Jockeys ( D . J ) Workers in Zagazig City 2013
TLDR
It is concluded from this study that DJ workers are at high risk for developing occupational deafness, measures should be taking as regard protection of their hearing via applying hearing conservation program by health authorities and enforcing application through labor syndicate.
Auditory thresholds among military musicians: conventional and high frequency.
TLDR
Exposure to music caused permanent hearing impairment, showing differences in relation to the non-exposed group, registered in conventional audiometry and at high-frequency audiometry.
Headphone Listening Habits and Hearing Thresholds in Swedish Adolescents
TLDR
The results indicated that longer lifetime exposure in years and increased listening frequency were associated with poorer hearing thresholds and more self-reported hearing problems and there is a subgroup that listens between 90 and 100 dB for longer periods of time, even during sleep, which might be at risk for developing future noise-induced hearing impairments.
Noise-Induced Hearing Loss as a Growing Threat to Society
TLDR
The exact dangers of leisure music to society is determined, as peoples’ hearing can be negatively impacted by excessive exposure to music, in terms of both duration and sound (dB) level.

Noise induced hearing loss in dance music disc jockeys and an examination of sound levels in nightclubs
TLDR
It can be concluded that DJs are at substantial risk of developing noise-induced hearing loss and noise exposure in nightclubs frequently exceeds safe levels.
Hearing in Nonprofessional Pop/Rock Musicians
TLDR
Tinnitus and hypersensitivity to sound were observed in a significant minority within a group of nonprofessional pop/rock musicians who had experienced repeated exposure to intense sound levels over at least 5 yr but with minimal impact on their lives.
Otoacoustic emissions in 28 young adults exposed to amplified music.
TLDR
A hypothesis is proposed that weakness in TEOAEs as a result of exposure to loud music is seen first in the 2 kHz region of the emission spectrum, and later at higher frequencies; and that for a given amount of exposure, TEOae weakness (or OHC damage) is more advanced in left ears than in right.
Temporary threshold shift induced by music.
TLDR
The females had significantly more temporary threshold shift than the males after noise-exposure, and there were no significant differences in listening levels or music-induced threshold shifts between genders, although such differences were found between groups with different listening habits.

TLDR
The study shows that all the employees regardless of occupations are exposed to noise above the permissible level of 85 dBA Leq and a high proportion of them also suffer from early sensorineural hearing loss and tinnitus.
Avaliação da alteração auditiva provocada pelo uso do walkman, por meio da audiometria tonal e das emissões otoacústicas (produtos de distorção): estudo de 40 orelhas
TLDR
The present study confirmed the incidence of Temporary Threshold Shift (TTS) after exposure to loud intensity music, especially in 4 kHz and 6 kHz.
Pup Music and Hearing
TLDR
Temporary threshold shift measurements showed that musicians were more resistant to pop music noise than the audience and that female listenerswere more resistant than male listeners, leaving many interesting questions concerning the relationship between noise and hearing loss.
Transient-evoked otoacoustic emissions and high-frequency acoustic trauma in the guinea pig.
TLDR
Transient-evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOE) disappear when hearing loss exceeds 40 dB in the range 1-4 kHz, due to impairment of cochlear outer hair cells, and a significant linear regression was found between their amplitudes and the percentage of basal cochlea with unaltered CAP thresholds.
Die Erfassung von Lärmschäden bei Besuchern einer Diskothek mit Hilfe der TEOAE und DPOAE
TLDR
TEOAE and DPOAE are not ideal instruments in the detection of temporary threshold shift after noise exposure, and their potential and difference are found to be low.
