I dont, but I'm considering it. At shows though, I dont stand near the speakers if I can help it. The worst thing would be rehersal every week, and I cant wear them then. Anyone tried to sing while wearing plugs? As your jaw moves they just fall out rendering the whole excercise useless.

Yeah, it's hard to sing with earplugs in... but you definately get used to it. I use earplugs for percussionists - and they don't fall out.

Something like this works fucking well:


Oh, and I made the stupid choice to not wear earplugs when I went to see Judas Priest with Voivod last August. I have been having a huge ringing in my ears since. It's a huge reality check! I will never be able to have pure silence again.

I am using tissue since nearly 15 years (back then there was a wall of noise concert that was unbearable in the room without any protection and there I said "never again without").

Tissue has the advantage that it attenuates a nice frequency spectrum which makes the music more listenable compared to earplugs.
(that is only valid for my own musical/frequency hearing curve and ear geometry. The lowpass curve ends later than with earplugs, which is more enjoyable for my ears).

Kerry kings horrible bumblebee solos will tear your ears apart. So for the love of God Pazuzu, Cthulu or whoever, wear earplugs when seeing Slayer. It's not worth losing your hearing over weeedleeedeeeeellleedddeeeweedlooo!
Better yet unless you have a time machine, please don't go see Slayer.

Jamming and gigs for 20 years, never worn the plugs. Tried a few times, don't like how they feel or how they sound.

No ringing in the ears, nothing.

Lucky? Yes.
Smart? Probably not.
About to change? Nope.

I don't have that problem. are you inserting them correctly? I just use the ordinary factory-worker foam type and they are fine. took me a while to get used to the different pressure within my head so I started with half a plug in each ear and worked my way up to full plugs. I do sing slightly better without them, but the difference isn't worth it live.

you do have to get used to them, that's for sure. it's worth it. I was on a long hike last week and the wind was intense and LOUD in my ears... but since I have earplugs with me all the time, problem solved

@angel16: 3 dB correspond to a doubling of the volume intensity, so 10 dB steps in this scale are little more than 3 times the volume between the points (in order to understand the monstrous magnitude of the dB-scale).


However the chart is slightly incorrect. The values are absolute values, so they are in dB-A i(not only dB) ndicating acoustic volume (dBm/dBuV in electronics) and therefore referencing to a certain base-value. Correctly spoken: between 57dB-A and 60dB-A is 3 dB difference...ok, now I run as fast as I can...)

A friend of me went to My Bloody Valentine yesterday (not my thingy)
At the end they went up to 130 dB. Shocked
People without earplugs were running out fo the hall.

I do just fine with the regular ones. They fit, guess it depends on ear, eh.

I work around some pretty loud shit at my job so I'm accustomed to wearing earplugs often. Occasionally I wear both earplugs and ear defenders in instances of louder noise made by one of the few things consistently louder then any Motorhead or Manowar show, large jet engines! I still wear earplugs at every show I go to and have been doing so for years without giving it much thought but it is likely due to having been used to it from work. I assure you the loudest concert you've ever attended pales in comparison to standing within 100 or so feet of a jet engine running at 80% and higher rpm! Now THAT is just unbelievably loud.

Say what you will about Jucifer, but every time I've seen them they literally
vibrate the liquid in the drinks (Jurassic park) High on fire toured with them and Matt Pike said they were the loudest band he had ever seen.
I decided at one gig to not wear plugs. They cured my constipation. but there was absolutely no ringing in the ears, even the second they stopped playing. I could feel pressure in my ears during the show and my vision was blurry , but could it be that the fact that thier sound is based on low end frequencies have anything to do with this. I made the mistake of not wearing plugs at a slayer gig and the ears rang for three days. Was this due to kerry kings high end bumbblebee solos?

After posting in this a couple day sago, what do I do at a gig Monday? Forget them shits.

Luckily Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation and Withered were not too bad. Volume wise, music wise is another thread.
