Hi Guys, Can someone give me some info on custom ear plugs. I wanna look after my ears, i always get anoying ringing in my right ear which i use for mointoring. I don't wanna end up with tinnitus. Get's worse after long periods of mixing the ringing. Is there any frequencie wave or dB range i have to get? I don't understand the voulme range?

Thanks for any info giving guys :)

Good question, I've been looking too, as after more than an hour of mixing my monitoring ear rings for a couple of hours, and a couple of days after a rave.

Thats incredible baring in mind your 18. Hearing losses that occur during teenage years are almost unheard of.
I seriously recommend ear plugs when raving and turing your speakers at home down extremely quietly. Boring but you may preserve your hearing a little longer.

yeah it only happens when mixing in a live environment, so the headphones are really loud, and the ringing disappears quickly enough, saying that they only stopped ringing today after the LTJ Bukem album launch on friday

I've always been meaning to buy some ear plugs, just never got round to it, but this thread has made me think i'll get right on it
