Hearing Damage from High Pitched Noises

    Does a loud noise that is beyond my range of hearing still do damage to my ears?

    Higher frequencies (3,000 to 6,000 Hz and beyond) at very high volume levels will produce a sensorineural hearing deficit. Its not so much the pitch as it is the loudness.
