Safe and Sound: How loud is too loud?
How are we able to hear and enjoy the sounds at bluedot? At the “Safe and Sound” stand, you will be able to explore the science of sound, examine sound levels around the festival site, and discover how our ears make it possible for us to hear. However, too much noise can damage our hearing, so we also have activities to help you understand how loud is “too loud” and how you can protect your delicate ears. After all, hearing is the best of the five senses, or so we at the Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness (ManCAD) think.
