If you are exposed to 85dB+ sounds levels for various time periods, you could benefit from using noise protection.
Musicians who play live regularly, or play in high volume surroundings, such as rock or metal music, can benefit from using filtered noise plugs. Not only will they protect your hearing, they will bring the overall sound level down without losing the tone or feel of the on-stage sound.
Even sound engineers, road crews and gig goers can benefit from using noise protection,
as being exposed to 85dB+ sounds often, or for an extended time can result in permanent damage to your hearing.
Even an increase in sound level by 3dB makes the intensity of that sound double (i.e., it is twice as loud). Each time you double the sound intensity, the safe listening time is halved. In fact, listening to 100dB sounds for longer than 15 minutes per day will start to cause damage to your hearing. The louder the sound, the sooner the chance of permanent hearing damage. Symptoms such as continued ringing in the ears, or temporary hearing loss after a show are signs that you should be using noise protection.
