PostSubject: Do you use ear plugs at shows?   Mon Nov 09, 2015 10:15 am

Hi everyone,

Everytime I leave some show, I hear whistling in my ears, sometimes it takes days before I can hear properly. Last time it took almost a week to get my hearing back (it was AC/DC show in Austria this May and it was really loud Twisted Evil ). I guess Im not only one with this problem. Do you use ear plugs and if yes, what are your experiences with different brands? Im thinking about buying Alpine Music Safe ear plugs. I dont want to use industrial ear plugs or cotton stuffed inside my ears because it ruins the sound.

Well jesus dude, of course. Gotta wear earplugs, that's like music 101. Ears are sensitive. I just wear whatever I can get a hold of, really. I'm not very responsible with my belongings so if I had proper ear plugs I'd just lose them anyway.

I wouldn't recommend the foam ones that you use to sleep in, they completely ruin the sound. But you can get some with a fairly flat frequency response for about 15 that don't ruin it too badly. I only use them myself if my ears are causing me a problem (I seem to get pain at the time rather than tinnitus later) but I have a lot of friends, especially musicians, who swear by them.

Tinnitus will only get worse as you get older, and prevention is much better than cure.

Thanks for responses, I ordered Alpine MusicSafe Pro ear plugs which have quite good reviews. Its set with 3 different exchangable filters for different levels of protection. I should recieve it tomorrow and I will try them during weekend. I will write my review then. Laughing

I've never used earplugs before, but sometimes I wish I did. A couple of months ago at a U2 concert there was some kind of simulated car bomb during the show and it was loud. Hurt my ears and after that I had this beep for like a whole week. That was the only time it lasted longer than 1-2 days.

I don't know how so many people can go to shows without ear plugs of some kind. I can MAYBE get away with it at an out door show, but most of the time it's just unpleasant. Plus I want to still be able to hear when I'm 50.

Like Harbortown though I would either lose them or forget to bring them to shows so I just use tissue/paper towels whatever and it works perfectly. I've never tried cotton. Wouldn't that come apart too easily?
