In July, my colleague Dr. Daniel Fink and I had two papers accepted for publication in Proceedings of Meetings on Acoustics.
Both are open access and free to share.
The first paper is on noise risk to auditory health from common everyday sound sources that are too loud. This includes concerts, stadium events, public transit, household appliances, and power tools.
The second paper is on personal audio system or personal listening device risk to auditory health from loud sound output.
We hope these papers will lead to zero noise emissions or noise limit standards for preventable noise sources.
