If hypothesis correct, then we need to prevent noise.
There are three ways to control noise.
From source (reducing volume)
When transmitting (acoustic conditioner)
Protecting the listener (wearing ear caps)
Soundscapes are natural consequences of the environment.
The correct management of the human-generated soundscapes, specially
in urban environments, will lead towards a better care for the hearing
