Decibel Levels

January 25, 2010 by USA Post 

Decibel Levels:While watching the NFC championship game, the camera showed a decibel meter recording noise on the field at 102dB. Curiosity had me, so I found a chart that gave various decibel levels.

  • Normal conversation (3-5?), 60-70dB
  • Telephone dial tone, 80dB
  • Train whistle at 500?, Truck Traffic, 90dB
  • Level at which sustained exposure may result in hearing loss, 90 – 95dB
  • Power mower at 3?, 107dB
  • Sandblasting, Loud Rock Concert, 115dB
  • Pain begins, 125dB

Maybe they ought to hand out earplugs at the game.
