Good thread! I too find hi-hats extremely tedious. The worst part of production for me, is definately the hihats, they hit a part of your ear that is beyond any ringing. I've had a few pain spikes. I also find you can strain your ears by listening to hard. If you don't notice the hi-hats they don't seem to bother you, but if you focus on and say picking them out for mixingdown/compression it can realy hurt! I often have to turn the speakers down instantly or take the headphones out immiedietly!

i too have some hearing damage but i'm grateful it's only with in a certain range that i hear muffle speech . 8 years in the military hearing jets take off with in yards of me and bomb blasts do take it's toll, even with hearing protection. but i can still hear mids highs and lows very well i think it's something about speech that i cannot distinguish well.. i'm one of those people that say " what did you just say?" quite often

It is very important to use hearing protection at work if available. I work as a printer and after 15 odd years of running large presses, I have certrainly damaged my hearing. It isn't really just going to a loud rave/gig for a few hours that does the damage, it far more damaging from day in, day out exposure to loud noise.

Yeah, I agree with you. I started wearing plugs even when going to the bus station, as the accelerating and braking of the buses creates immense noise that makes my ears hurt!
Or at least, put my earphones from my phone, which cancels a bit of noise (I assume about 7 - 10 dB).

I also have custom made molded earplugs with linear frequency response, but those are not sufficient in some situations.

I could swear I have bad tinnitus at times due to headphone usage! Sometimes if I take off my head phones, for a few minutes everything sounds like it's been run through a flanger, weird shit. I try and listen low and use spectral analysis to help tweak things instead fo whacking up the volume.

I've scared the shit out of myself a few times wearing phones when accidentally moving the mouse using something like a waveshapper and it kills my ears! Bad stuff.

some time ago, one side of my headphones broke down, so i cut it off, and some time later my other headphone started making these noises..
after I listend to a track, no matter what the volume was, my ear just felt like somebody put a pencil in real deep.
so bought new headphones, and It's over, hope this didnt ruin my ear completely.
I'm very young, so I need to be aware of Db's, for example when making a tune, I like to turn it up a lil, so i can hear everything clear.
but after a while, when i take a break, my hearing is much less for an hour orso.
so I stopped doing that, don't wanna lose my hearing.

no music, no life!

good topic, people need to be aware.

if you live in the uk,
you can get a free hearing test from any Leightons opticians.
well worth it to get things checked out.
especial if your getting a little worried that you cant hear the missuses screaming at you after a good head phone session Smile

LPF: The worst is when you put the waveshaper on bipolar mode and make a straight vertical line...

AgeBreak: Same thing is happening to me with these Skullcandy headphones, i feel like i lose midrange whenever i take them off, even if i listen real quiet the whole time

When messing with waveshaping or boosting stuff it is a good idea to move your headphones partly off your ears.
The worst thing for me are drums that have a hard attack and no tail you can feel a certain "pulsation" on your eardrums, especially with clicky hihats.

When I see all these very young people with their iPods and Big Sennheiser or Skull Candy headphones playing at levels where I can sing along, I get worried about their hearing in 20 years. It will be bad, the questions is HOW bad.

Atleast on here young producers get aware of the damage caused by constant high volumes of sound on their ears. Party people and home listeners usually have no clue of what they are doing.

This was definately a great thread. i have been worried about my hearing for a while as i keep getting colds leading to blocked ears and increased high pitch squealy sounds perminantly.

i remember once my friend was sending my wav samples of a bassline he was working on, they were quite low volume so i turned the volme up, the next one he sent was a pearcing squeal of a distorted bassline and he had doubled the volume, it hurt so much and i didn tlisten to music for about a week.

anyway my main point is, im no longer going to stick my head inside bass speakers and im going to get some earplugs (i have worn them already to the last few gigs)
