#HearingFactFriday: Noise is the antithesis of the best sounds ever

All month long, we asked people across the globe to help decide the #BestSoundEver. We started with 24 amazing sounds, and today, the two that have been voted through — waves lapping and rain pitter-pattering — fight for the title!

The best sounds ever relax us, entice us, evoke fond memories, and force smiles on our faces. They are the opposite of noise.

Noise — according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — can cause bad things, like stress or anxiety or depression or high blood pressure. Especially if you are regularly exposed to it without hearing protection.

Noise is something to avoid. Best sounds ever are something to seek out.

So the no-brainer conclusion is to protect your hearing from noise, while ensuring you can hear the sounds that really matter.
