Die größten Lärmquellen im Alltag: Wie viel dB sind wir im Alltag ausgesetzt?

The biggest sources of noise in everyday life: How much dB are we exposed to in everyday life?

Noise is any unwanted loud sound that causes disturbance, annoyance or damage. However, the perception of noise is subjective and depends on whether a particular sound is perceived as noise in a situation at all.

However, many people do not realize that we are often exposed to much more harmful noise in everyday situations than we think. The following is a list of classic everyday situations and the associated noise:

Our hearing threshold is 0 dB. Noise up to 70 dB is harmless to us, but is still perceived as unpleasant.

A conversation at a normal volume reaches 40-45 dB and is perceived as disturbing if you want to concentrate, for example.
Aircraft noise, which is perceived when planes are about 2000 meters in the air, reaches 50-60 dB and is perceived as noise in the long term.

    A snoring partner who reaches up to 60 dB does not provide sufficient rest, because in principle it should not be louder than 30-35 dB in the bedroom for sleeping.

      In an office with several employees talking at room volume, a telephone ringing and the clattering of keyboards can reach around 60-70 dB and can certainly lead to concentration problems.
      A passing motorcycle reaches approx. 70 dB and is usually perceived as disturbing for a short period of time.

      Fluglärm, den man wahrnimmt, wenn Flugzeuge ca. 2000 Meter in der Luft sind, erreicht 50-60 dB und wird auf Dauer als Lärm empfunden.

      Above 70 dB, however, noise becomes dangerous for us in the long term. This means that even everyday situations become a danger and should therefore not be underestimated.

      A loud radio reaches 70-75 dB, but is regarded as music and therefore not perceived as noise. However, it should not be underestimated, as it is already in the harmful range.
      Street noise, if you are standing on a main road, reaches 70-80 dB and is rather unpleasant for most people and therefore noise.
        A siren, for example an ambulance passing by, reaches 100 dB and is perceived as loud and pleasant.
          In a club or at a concert, the sound reaches 110 dB, but this is often not perceived as noise. It is precisely in these situations that you should not do without hearing protection, as it is all the more important here.
