For those of us who are more prone to tinnitus, hyperacusis and hearing loss:
How do all of you protect your ears without killing your social ?
How do all these expats, many of who are decades older than me, sit in loud bars all day without destroying their hearing ?
I used ER25s and 37 db ear plugs
I used pink and white noise to mask and treat tinnitus
i take N Carnetine and anti oxidants and biofllavanoids
Found any good ENT drs, audiiologists or hearing aid dispensers
I used to work with an ear doctor who treated US presidents and celebs
Thanks ! Dave
Surely the idea is to just not spent much time in such places. There are quieter bars. I don't understand why you would spend time in a bar so loud your hearing would likely be damaged (and presumably couldn't therefore hold a conversation) and then wear hearing protection.
Sorry but kind of along the lines Cornfed suggested... sit in quieter places, like coffeehouses... and wear those earphones millennials seem addicted to.. earphones make you look cool
And yeah, get outdoors, join a hiking group
"Well actually, she's not REALLY my daughter. But she does like to call me Daddy... at certain moments..."
Sir I avoid such places..It is noise exposure from my younger days plus aging plus genetics
