Loud music on headphones has the same effect on nerves as multiple sclerosis and causes hearing loss.
Loud music damages the nerves in the brain
Loud music played on earphones causes hearing loss by having a similar effect on nerves as multiple sclerosis, research finds. The research shows that noise levels above 110 decibels strip insulation from nerve fibers carrying signals from the ear to the brain. Loss of the protective coating, called myelin, disrupts electrical nerve signals.
