Can playing drums damage your hearing?

            Drummers are just as susceptible to significant hearing loss by virtue of the typical volume in which most of the music that they are playing at. Along with high volume, the extended length of time that their ears are exposed to high decibel levels puts them at extreme risk for significant hearing loss. 

            If a drummer is wearing some type of hearing protection like earplugs they can reduce the overall likelihood that they could lose hearing. Another option would be to use a device called an ear monitor which allows the music to be heard, but all other sound is reduced.
