At a children’s disco party, music was played at worryingly high noise levels. Measuring 119db for the duration of each piece of music, the recommended safe exposure time without hearing protection is just 15 seconds; far less than the 2-hour disco duration (it is worth noting that the measurement was taken several meters away from the sound source, so some children would have been exposed to far louder volumes).
