    Not to sound like a lecturing old geezer, but I'm living proof that unprotected loudness (coupled with boozing) at rock shows leads to hearing loss. If your ears are still ringing the next day after a show, you are succeptible to hearing damage and need to change the way you see (or perform, if you are a musician) live shows.

    I'm sorry, could you say that again? Having trouble hearing you.

    Clubbing where there's ear pounding tunes that have heavy basslines leads to hearing loss as well.

    Or you can get the really good kind. I got a pair of these about a year ago, and they are like magic.

    My audiologist took a mold of my ear so that they fit perfectly, and then you can replace that little "button" on the outside with filters that cancel increasing or decreasing amounts of noise (you can cancel 10db, 15db, 25db, and so on). Also, you can barely see them

    The beauty is that these don't change the quality of the sound. So you don't lose all the high frequency sounds you lose when you jam styrofoam in your ears.

    Ths downside is that they cost about $200. But if you go to enough shows, like I do, they're well worth it.

    It sounds to me like you might be doing some damage. Go to an audiologist, and for God's sake, plug your ears at shows before everything starts to sound like you've got earplugs in.

    ear ringing that lasts longer than 10 minutes is a sign of significant hearing loss. if you that enough times it piles up.

    Stop standing in front of the stage. :p

    But seriously, I've experienced that sensation too many times to tell. My hearing's pretty much fine, but I've been told that I'm going to go deaf in one ear and the other will likely follow because of a strange syndrome I've developed. I've stayed away from shows except acoustic since this diagnosis because I don't really want to hasten the inevitable.

    I've had it last as long as five days after some of the hardcore shows I used to go to, scared the hell out of me at the time.
    I recently had a hearing test done and despite two and a half decades of live shows and nite-clubbing the doctor told me my hearing was within normal range, funny that, I could have sworn I was half deaf.

    Days for sure. Now, one ear rings constantly, but that's not because it sneaked out and went to a show while the other one stayed home. Anyway, that's pretty annoying to have in one ear and would be awful to have constantly in both ears.

    I read somewhere your average rock club today uses a more powerful system than the Beatles did at Candlestick Park.

    Tinnitus: tin-night’-is or tin’-it-is (either pronunciation is correct)\ n. [L., tinnire to ring]: the perception of ringing, hissing, or other sound in the ears or head when no external sound is present. Tinnitus is a persistent, chronic noise in the ears. Having tinitus can be annoying, frightening, depressing, and debilitating. For some people, tinnitus is just a nuisance. For others, tinitus is a life-altering condition. In the United States, an estimated 17 million people have tinnitus to one degree or another.

    Tinnitus is a symptom not a disease. The tinitus sounds perceived by the sufferer include ringing in the ear, blowing, hissing, whistling, pulsating or high and low pitched sounds. The mechanism that causes these sounds to be heard where there is no outside source for these noises is unknown. Tinnitus, also referred to as ringing in the ear, is common. Almost everyone experiences a mild form of Tinnitus where one hears noises for several minutes. Persistent tinnitus can interfere with the ability to concentrate, sleep and may cause psychological problems. Historically, people with tinnitus were told they must learn to live with the tinitus condition; until recently, no treatment was available for tinnitus sufferers. The prospect of a life with tinnitus is frequently unbearable. As William Shatner, a longtime tinnitus sufferer, described in People Magazine, "...my terror came from two things: one is the sound itself. The other is that you're (tinnitus) is going to get worse, and you're never going to be able to sleep or concentrate again."

    Fortunately, effective tinnitus treatments now exist. Our mission at the Tinnitus Ear Ringing Center is to ease tinnitus sufferers symptoms through research to keep up with the newest, most cutting edge tinnitus remedies, and techniques for providing relief for tinnitus sufferers. And by using all means possible including alternative remedies, herbal, mineral, biofeedback, sound therapy, and other techniques to alleviate tinnitus symptoms.

    The worst is when I went to 5 hour George Clinton non-stop jam session and my ears rang for a couple of days.

    almost everyone i know has tinnitus. of course most of them wear aluminum foil hats, but that could be a coincidence.

    by the way, they really work

    Standing in front of the stage doesn't make my ears hurt. It really makes me feel sick though b/c it's so loud.
