Can music damage hearing?

Any sound, if loud enough, can damage your hearing. Whether you are a fan of easy-listening, hard-rock, or classical any music played loud enough can harm your hearing permanently. Other everyday sounds such as noisy toys, lawnmowers, and televisions or those sounds associated with certain workplaces such as factories or construction sites can also contribute to hearing damage. All sounds have the potential to have a permanent effect on hearing if not properly controlled.
