I was recently at a party where the music was ear piercing loud. My brother in law called me a buzz kill as I measured the volume of music with a sound level meter app on my phone.
It's no joke. You can do permanent damage listening to loud music. I only wish I knew that back in the 70s and 80s when I sat at concerts with my ears pinned to the amp.
If you love listening to live music, get yourself a pair of filtered earplugs. You will hear the music with clarity as well as the folks around you. Your ears will thank you.
