Yeah i've fucked my ears, happened 3 weeks ago and because i havent had the chance to get round to gettin ear plugs and ive been gigging and raving, they havent stopped ringing the whole time. I can't notice until I get into bed but its always there.
Fucking annoying but there is nothing you can do once they're gone, plus it makes it harder to hear higher frequences. Get some plugs sorted NOW before you next go out, learn from my mistake!
defo, and someone who plays often, ie more than twice a month should well invest in some moulded er25's.
as said in the past, the NHS is the best option for those plugs. Find your local audiology department and ask for an appointment to check your hearing, and also to make the moulds from which your plugs will be made. expect to pay around £140, but its well worth it. dont mess with your hearing, just aint worth it.
