Sensitive to noise induced hearing damage

Post by newarrior »

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

Sir I avoid such places..It is noise exposure from my younger days plus aging plus genetics

I know what hearing loss is, and it is awful. I've been wearing a hearing aid for about a year. Thank God there exist several types of these devices, and some of them are 100% invisible. As for the loud bars, I don't go there, I used to when I was younger, but now I prefer quieter places. Anyway, if you feel that your hearing becomes worse, visit a doctor immediately. I was lucky to find a good hearing aid audiologist who examined me, suggested treatment, and helped me to choose a proper hearing device.
