How Loud Is Loud

How loud is loud? Or, how loud is enough?

Just asking this because I was wondering how sensitive the human ears are.

There's a group of youngsters whose hangout is just below the building unit where I currently live. We are at the third floor of the building and they are just twenty meters away from the perimeter fence.

Every night these young boys and girls gather together to talk anything under the sun that they had been through. Sometimes they practice dance, or jam together with a guitar and in some occasions, a drinking session.

At first, I was glad to hear them happily bonding together. It is better than going out and engage in drugs and/or some undesirable vices. The only thing that is annoying and irritating is their very loud conversation and the noise they were making. There is nothing wrong with being happy, right? But, we must take cautions and be sensitive enough with the people around us.

Their voices is far louder than the shouting conversation inside our unit. I am not used to live in a closed unit as I feel suffocated . My room has always double panel windows and so with the other adjoining room. But even if my windows were closed, still I can hear their loud voices loud and clear.

I am wondering why their parents or guardians have not noticed this nor scolded them. Were they also immune to loud sounds and noise?

Just two things to ponder, "I am too sensitive" or "they were too insensitive".

It sounds like they may have been pretty inconsiderate to the surrounding neighbors.....

I think young people have no idea that they have an effect on those around them, they are enjoying themselves and nothing else matters. As a young person, I used to like playing the radio but my parents taught me to think of others who might not want to listen to "pop" music. I think at that age, I did not really care that others might not like it! Young people's ears are much more sensitive than older people's ears, yet they seem to be able to tolerate VERY loud music, although the younger generation have far more hearing problems than their parents' or grandparents' generations, because of this loud music and in ear headphones. yes, their parents should teach them to consider others more.
