If you’re like most rock-n-rollers, you like it loud. And who doesn’t? But if you’re serious about making music for a long time, you’ll want to protect your ears from long term damage. Contrary to popular belief, your ears don’t “get used” to being exposed to super loud music over time. Instead, they get damaged, and eventually, that damage can become permanent, leaving you at a disadvantage on stage or in the studio.
To drive it home a little bit more, consider the following numbers. Hearing damage can start to occur with long exposure (over about two hours) at as little as 80-85dB, which is about the level of a noisy restaurant, heavy traffic, or a leaf blower.
A rock concert typically gets to 95, 100, even 115 dB from the audience’s perspective, and it could be quite a bit louder on stage. At this level, hearing damage can start within a few minutes.
So, here are a few ways you can protect yourself on stage.
And of course – keep your head away from the snare and out of your guitar cabinet!
If you’re smart and consistent about protecting your hearing, you should be able to keep your ears healthy for a long time and keep rocking long after some people have called it quits.
