So how are the ears?

Post by Krul » Tue Apr 22, 2008 10:58 pm

As most of you guys are dj's yourself, I'm pretty sure everyone here knows about the downsides of the hobby/profession. (pretty ironic if you think about it eh?
we love loud music, but our ears sure don't :P)
So how do you deal with this?
Do you have a check-up from time to time? earplugs? anything?

sometimes earplugs, sometimes i just take care of not staying near to the loudspeakers and sometimes i go home :wink:
and if i have to play i turn the volume of the monitors down a little...
very simple and effective...

Suprisingly, my ears have survived quite well over the years. I wised up & started plugging them during my mid clubbing days. So, not as much damage as I could have endured. I wouldn't mind getting a pair of custom plugs, though, sometime in the near future.
