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… Expand
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. Expand
The Risks of Amplified Music for Disc-Jockeys Working in Nightclubs
TLDR
This study highlights the risk of amplified music on hearing and tinnitus in disc-jockeys working in nightclubs. Expand
Percepção e o impacto da música na audição de integrantes de banda militar
PURPOSE: To evaluate the exposition to loud music, the perception of its intensity and its impact in the hearing of integrants of a military band. METHODS: Sound pressure levels (SPL) at the placeExpand
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. Expand
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 andExpand
[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. Expand
Queixas auditivas de disc jockeys da cidade de Recife
TLDR
All disc jockeys complained on hearing loss and, among the other auditory complaints, they may emphasize discomfort under intense sound and tinnitus, which may perceive the need for speech therapy concerning the disc jockey for optimizing their professional performance with less risks. Expand

Background: There are approximately 11⁄4 million professional disc jockeys in the world; they are at very high risk for developing occupational deafness. Aim of work: To detect the prevalence ofExpand

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. Expand
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. Expand
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.

Factors affecting the use of hearing protectors among classical music players.
TLDR
The study shows that musicians seldom use hearing protectors before symptoms begin, and motivation and training is needed to improve hearing protector use among musicians. Expand

TLDR
It may be concluded that cochlear dysfunction in noise-induced hearing loss may extend beyond the frequency region suggested by the audiogram, and that DPOAEs is a sensitive test of this damage. Expand
Distortion-product otoacoustic emission spectra and high-resolution audiometry in noise-induced hearing loss
TLDR
It is hypothesized that NIHL in the second subgroup involves inner hair cells or auditory neurons, instead of outer hair cells in the first subgroup, which provides a comparatively accurate predictor of the spectral extent of hearing loss. Expand
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. Expand
