Actually there has been a 30% increase in hearing impairment among kids since 1988, let's not joke about a serious issue here.

I am the coolest person ever with my pirate chalice. Seriously.


I used to play drums and damaged my ears because nobody told me that wearing earplugs is a good plan. I have a fair idea of how loud something has to be to damage your eardrums. Ambulance/fire trucks and the caltrain horn 'I'm about to cross a road! I'm expressing through this station! etc' are loving loud and can damage your hearing. I block my ears when cars with sirens drive past or trains blow their horns. Also yeah, earplugs at concerts. Thankfully the hearing damage occurred when I was a teenager and somehow my hearing recovered a bit so it's still average or above average.

vehicle sirens are routinely 125db, higher in some cases, which means that your threshold for exposure without the possibility of permanent hearing damage is 3 seconds or less, hth

nah, it's more a sign of doing basic dumbass things like routinely exposing yourself to 125-130db without protection.

ive used a fancy set of etymotic ear plugs for the past six months for concerts and now i dont see why other people who enjoy seeing live music dont own a set of these...you can always just not wear them if they are not needed or pull them out when ur favorite song gets played. but why would you sacrifice some of ur ability to hear (especially later in life) for a lovely opening band playing too loud or if you happen to arrive late and ur forced to stand directly in front of the speakers?

I was at a belly dancing show a few weeks back which is 99.9 percent women performing and this fat flamboyantly gay indian guy was last up and decided he wanted tons of attention so he put the music full blast and did like a 30 minute show which is prob 25 mins longer than average

It was a full on gay assault as he basically strip teased down to a thong and did a lot of booty popping and it was funny for a couple minutes but to lose some hearing due to stupid poo poo like that is shameful. as my ears rang later, much like Freddie Mercury i was full of regret. wear protection children

the crazy thing concerts are actually more fun and enjoyable with plugs in. you can hear the instruments and the music better, and after the show you can have a normal conversation not have cloudy ringy ears

i remember when i was younger and dumber i went to an f1 race and we were pretty close to the track right next to a hairpin turn (so the cars would accelerate coming out of the turn and jesus christ the blowoff valves.) i was like ya i dont need hearing protection

after about two laps i went and got ear plugs

The living look upon the corpse with their eyesight,
But without eyesight lingers a different living and looks
curiously on the corpse.

concerts arent more enjoyable with earplugs. anyone who says that is a dweeb. plus arguably there are performances of music where the volume is as important to the experience of the work as any other aspect of the sound.

i have crushing tinnitus.
