TAKE CARE OF YOUR EARS!
We all love music, but in order to enjoy it without any complications it is of the utmost importance to always keep the decibel levels with which we listen to it in mind; the World Health Organization (WHO) considers prolonged exposure to levels above 75 decibels (db) or short-term sounds that are over 110 db can cause permanent ear damage
