  1. I haven't been to too many concerts in my life so maybe I don't know enough to make generalizations but... Why do they always have to rape your ears? Almost every concert I have to deal with obnoxiously loud instruments and the buzzing\drone (? dunno how to translate "ãóäåíèå" properly) is usually insane. Most music is supposed to be pleasant to the ears I think, but how can it be pleasant when you feel like covering your ears half the time? Maybe I should actually wear earplugs next time lol?

      I like the experience of live shows but I can't enjoy anything if I'm not physically comfortable. The last show I went to I was the only guy covering his ears and looking for quieter places to stand, and I'd probably have walked out if I didn't have friends on stage. This wasn't a particularly loud show, so either I'm abnormally sensitive or I've spent enough time with deaf grandparents to make me cautious. I'm thinking about getting musician's ear plugs. I can probably get enough use out of them to justify it over the long-term. I'd rather not have frequency-skewing florescent orange foam sticking out of my ears if I'm the only guy in the audience who needs it.

      I never would have guessed that it's just standard procedure to wear ear plugs to rock and metal concerts. I'm with printz - my first thought is "Can't they just turn that shit down?" but I get it, different strokes and all that.

      Deep Purple was probably the loudest show I've ever attended... That was the show that made my tinnitus bad enough to quit going to concerts.

      And you were wearing -30 dB ear plugs? Jesus.

      It would be kinda ridiculous wearing these at any rock or metal concert.
