What happens to the body when it's exposed to loud music for a long time? I know it can damage the hearing, but what about the other parts of the body when it is subjected to too much sound vibration?

Hi, A funny question. Rolling Eyes I suppose if it is intense enough you could cause local heating. However, I doubt seriously that anyone has ever been so exposed. The sound level would have to be huge. Confused

Good Listening

Indeed, it is funny. However, it can be a serious matter as well. People in the old days find it funny when some will say that smoking can kill you. I think nobody has studied the effect of too much vibration for internal organs.

An interesting article on NASA's approach to minimize launch noise from destroying their new spacecraft.

This principle of converting sound energy into heat energy is simply amazing. There is always something we can learn every day. The article mentioned that the bubbles absorbed the energy. Is that the reason for the white cloud of smoke when the space shuttle lifts off?

This is amazing because I never thought about the sound energy more powerful than the heat energy produced by the engines. The explanation in the article was clear that the white smoke produced during liftoff is the steam from the water.

One treatment for kidney stones is extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL). ESWL uses sound waves to create strong vibrations (shock waves) that break the stones into tiny pieces that can be passed in the patient's urine. The procedure lasts about 45 to 60 minutes and can cause moderate pain, so sedation is often used.

Some kidney stone patients who couldn't afford ESWL exposed themselves to rap music at extremely high sound pressure levels instead. This had no effect on their kidney stones, but it destroyed their brains, so they no longer felt pain, or anything else. Laughing

I wasn't going to chime-in on this thread, but now I feel we've reached my level and so I can be comfortable with my comment:

Loud bass might make a brown note.

Wayne Parham's pro subwoofers do that all the time, but only when they're driven by a Schiit amplifier. http://www.schiit.com/products/ragnarok
