Re: Hearing Problems

It is something I have got used to now. I wear Plugs (vented Doc's) and it has not really get any worse, Certain frequencies are a pain but it is something I can live with.

Re: Hearing Problems

Yeah, my ears are constantly cracking and making a gush noise. It's preventing me from playing in bands at the moment. Even if I did I'm going to end up having to use big ear muffs, so I'll look like a complete Gilbert wannabe, I'll just need the spacesuit, lol

I found a great site about hearing problems, I'll post the link here when I find it again.

Re: Hearing Problems

I have a bit of it. It comes and goes this high pitch tone.

Re: Hearing Problems

I have had constant ringing ears for a very long time. Maybe I should check up on it, eh?

DEFINITELY, get them check out or you'll regret it.

It's true what they say, you don't know what you've got until it's gone. I really miss being able to crank my music but that's the price you pay for not looking after them.

Re: Hearing Problems

I had a ringing in my ear after a show where I saw some local bands. It actually lasted for a while and I had partial loss of hearing in the ear but my ear seems to have recovered now. I'm not going to take any chances from now on because I can't afford to lose my hearing. I'm going to look into some sort of small earbuds or something that don't block out all the noise but dampen it enough to where it doesn't hurt the ear.

Re: Hearing Problems

What??

Just kidding. I've got a bit of ringing most times - it's not bad, but it's there. Too many shows with no hearing protection. Once I clued in and started wearing plugs, things actually sounded a lot better.

I used to do a lot of shooting as well, though I usually wore at least one level of plugs then. Now when I shoot, I've always got plugs and muffs. Can't be too careful, folks.

Re: Hearing Problems

I've got it in both ears. I've had it since i was a kid. I don't remember what silence sounds like. Interestingly enough my hearing is "perfect". I just had it tested.

Re: Hearing Problems

Yeah I've got a quiet constant ringing, though I can only hear it right before I go to sleep, very rarely in the daytime. I've got severe ringing still from the Trivium show last night, so it's given me a taste of what's to come if I don't take more care I suppose.

Hopefully it'll be gone in a few days like it usually does. Unfortunately its not the kind of concert you can safely wear earplugs to; they'd just end up getting yanked out by all the people thrashing about. Really need to start wearing them all the time at band practice though.

Re: Hearing Problems

Unfortunately, I am a member in this thread, I have constant problems. When I play in my band now and in the past I wear ear plugs. Most of the damage came from when I would go see local bands play in the Philly area I wouldn't wear plugs because I didn't want to look like dork. But now I look like a dork when I'm in large crowds & I can't understand what some of the people are saying because of the overall back ground noise.
