Today's Personal Safety Tip: Ear Plugs at Concerts
They make good ones now. Gone are the days of listening to music with cigarette filters, wadded kleenex, or fingers in the ears.
Hopefully gone is waking up the next morning with a sound hangover. Lose the high end of your hearing (which is what goes first) and you lose the ability to hear or distinguish the important mid range of music (which is why people buy fancy crossover equipment).
A friend lays it out like this for young musicians asking career advice: "We were the guinea pigs. Wear your ear plugs."
That's it: Wear your ear plugs.
They're becoming fashionable now.
