What Did Going to Rock Concerts Do to Your Hearing?

Nothing good.

See, while you were happy rocking out to everything from AC/DC to ZZ Top, your ears would’ve been a lot happier with the sound of silence.

What’s that you say, Mrs. Robinson? …No really, can you repeat that? [1]
And no, not of the Simon and Garfunkel variety.

Hearing Loss: A Sign of a Life Well-Lived

While we know you wouldn’t trade those concert memories for anything, the fact is…those were some loud shows. We’re talking 130 decibels loud. And considering anything over 85 decibels is considered harmful…yeah. Your ears went through the ringer.

And now, here you are. You’ve got some crazy concert stories and tons of band swag, but you’ve also got some hearing loss. And that’s okay! We happen to think hearing loss is a sign of a life well lived, so…congratulations!

Obviously, you’re keeping the band swag, and you’ll be telling that story about the time you made meaningful eye contact with Keith Richards until people stop inviting you to things because they’ve heard the “meaningful eye contact with Keith Richards” story one too many times.

But do you have to keep the hearing loss?

Can we get a big “highway to hell no”!

…Okay, so it’s not a perfect reference. Points for trying?

But there is an easy solution for your hearing loss, and it’ll make listening to your well-loved LPs feel like the first time.

It feels like the first time, it feels like the very first time
