    Some people are driven half nuts by it.

    I've thought of trying some of the various meds for it.
    But they sound a bit like snake oil.
    I may give one a rip.

    OP here ....... I went to an audiologist yesterday and my hearing was 100% perfect. Eardrum function was also perfect. She doesn't suspect my tinnitus is from loud music but from some other cause. Nevertheless, I'm still going to turn down my headphones.

    Aspirin is a main cause also.

    Since I committed to 'cutting the cord', I have accumulated a tablet and a smartphone. I also have an old mini MP3 player I rarely use since I got my phone. Up until I acquired these gadgets (last year), I only used earbuds when a friend had me listen to their stuff - rarely.

    These days when I'm streaming stuff, I frequently use my earbuds and I'm always cranking the volume past the device's warning level, which usually kicks in around 12 or 13. The trouble is, all the earbuds I've used don't perform well as inserted. Nearly all the low end is lost. Sometimes, especially with music, I'll put a fingertip under my ears at the back of the jaw on either ear and push straight up. This compresses the ear cavity around the earbud and the low end springs to life. It's like turning the bass track in a mix up from -50 to -18. The pressing is uncomfortable after a few seconds, but wow.. sure sounds great, and the volume isn't uncomfortable - I actually turn it down when I kick the bass in like this.

    As an infant, I had problems with one ear which resulted in one of the openings being smaller than the other. I have to use two different sized foam buds to accommodate this, otherwise one would keep falling out. So, I do most of my music listening with over the ear headphones and have been running those at about 2/3 the volume I have in the past. Sometimes I still have to crank it, though - just for one song
    Failure - - the path of least persistence

    Hi mixsit,
    Just saw this.

    I think that alot of one's sensitivities to sound also depend on one's DNA.

    I seem to have a very sensitive body - the tinnitus is getting worse, and after a few weeks of intense guitar practice recently, which I really, really enjoyed, I seem to have worsened some Repetive Strain Injuries, and to have permanently created others. This is really frustrating.

    Sorry to hear that...Thank you for the reminder. I heard in-ear monitors by 64Audio apparently protect against this because there's lesser air pressure or no air pressure I believe but I can't be sure.

    Musician wins landmark ruling over ruined hearing - BBC News

    I've been following this for a long time - and the Opera House lost. Damages to be announced later - but the guy sat in front of a brass section and now ordinary sounds feel like a needle being shoved into his ear, and they are responsible. Hearing is precious.
