We study the origin of the Noise-Induced Hearing Losses NIHL in relation to the morphology and the physiology of the ear. We describe the mechanical and metabolic effects of the noises on the inner ear and their consequences on hearing. We discuss the importance and the limitations of the protective mechanisms. Finally, we present new possibilities to protect the ear against noise and to treat the acoustic trauma.
