Going to the show would mean he'd have to come out of the anechoic chamber. There's no fun in that!

Matt, I don't know what you do for a career but I can tell you that pulling wrench's and loud music/concerts takes a real toll on the ears. It is so gradual ,and hearing protection was not really encouraged when I got into the game. Its worse some days than others but it is never gone. I can ignore it for the most part but once you notice it , it takes a while to ignore again and it really is frustrating. I can still hear pretty good for the most part but certain frequencies are better than others and for the past 10 yrs I religiously use hearing protection. Don't take your hearing for granted.

Thank you !

I know where you are coming from. I do woodworking now and dealing with machines of all sorts of loudness each day. I too lost too much from my younger days where I took up trap shooting and didn't think that it would be that loud. Along with too many loud concerts and I have that perpetual humm in my ears.

My wife looked at me funny the last concert i went to when i pulled out a set of bright yellow foam earplugs and put them in before the concert started. I enjoyed it. I have heard that there are some specialized electronic earplugs that reduce the sound impact without effecting the frequency range that you hear.

For me, I have to watch TV & movies with the remote in hand to turn up and down the volume as some parts i can't hear what is being said, but turn down for the big explosions and over powering background music parts. I was hoping that DTS-X would fix it for me to be able to turn up the voice object, and turn down the background music object.

True Dat... too bad I punished my ears the way I did, wish someone had warned me . When my kids work at the shop I stay on them about ear protection. No excuse these days .

M80s well received, but we ended up mostly listening to music from the reel-to-reel in a tube system driving a pair of Michaura M66s (twin Axiom 6.5" drivers and the Axiom 0.75" titanium tweeter) and an EP500 subwoofer.

I love the sound quality of reel-to-reel. It is pure and looks extremely cool. Fiddly though.
