    Hey I've got some hyper-sensitive ears so after loud music, they always ring for like a week, and I've been left with tinnitus, so I've decided to wear ear plugs tonight (Welcome Party at the student union, where there'll be loads of live bands). Anyone else wear ear plugs to loud places or am I just being weird :p:

    Sounds like a good idea if it effects you that much. If you're embarrassed, why not just wait to put them in when everybody is a bit drunk and won't noticw?

    Well it depends on if anyone notices... and if they do you could just explain your tinnitus. I'd doubt anyone would though as it'll probably be quite dark.

    I understand your reasoning though, I wouldn't want to make the ringing any worse.

    I have a friend who wears them. Shes studying music so her hearing has to be as perfect as possible. No one cares. If anyone asks just say you get really bad migraines from loud music as your hearing is really sensitive.
    How often really do you look at someones ears anyway!? If they are small and discreet they will probably go unnoticed by most, especially those that are drunk.

    Whoever said to listen to loud music to get used to it is an idiot. Hearing damage is cumalative, once it's damaged it doesn't heal itself. Personally I wouldn't go to a club or gig without them as without my hearing I'm f**ked... Maybe if you look at the sound engineer during the gig and see that he's wearing them might indicate to you that it's a good idea Heck, I love loud music, but I'm starting to see (hear) the dangers and the damage to my hearing so try and protect it while you've got it

    Don't be a sheep, try and set the trend ehh? :P

    I do all the time, why not tbh
    No-one sees them, the music isn't boomy, and people's voices are actually much clearer. Win-win situation!
