In this tutorial we will show you how you can enable Reduce Loud Sounds feature for headphones. This feature is designed to reduce loud sounds when you are listening to audio using headphones.
If you have used iOS 13, you may be aware of a hearing feature Apple had introduced in the Health App. The feature was, in fact, designed to protect users from high levels of sound from their headphones for an extended period of time. Yes, an amazing feature, indeed, and Apple decided to take this feature to a more advanced level in iOS 14. In the new version of iOS, the hearing features have the ability to measure and reduce the volume level of the loud sounds you hear in real-time.
The main reason for introducing the Reduce Loud Sounds feature is the health hazards of users being exposed to loud sounds. According to health experts, listening to high volume at 80 decibels for more than 40 hours a week puts you at a higher risk of hearing loss. The damage starts at 90 decibels for four hours in a week. And over 100 decibels for just a few minutes causes damage.
