Hearing is something that many musicians take for granted. We may think that loud is better but over time, we are doing irreversible damage to our biggest asset, our hearing.

Long exposure to high sound pressure levels can result in hearing loss and tinnitus (a constant high pitched ringing in the ear). Tinnitus is a permanent condition and should not be taken lightly. It is the start of a greater hearing loss problem. Many guitar legends including Eric Clapton and The Who’s Pete Townsend are suffering from hearing issues over their long careers of being exposed to loud volumes.

If you come home from a gig or a rehearsal and you have a slight ringing in your ears, this is your ears telling you that potential damage is being caused. Action at this stage is critical as hearing damage is irreversible once it gets to a certain stage.

If you are serious about looking after your hearing, you should consider wearing some form of ear protection when performing, or even attending live music.
