ok, I'm curious who here wears earplugs to concerts, and how frequently. I never wear earplugs, but I sometimes see others wearing them. I don't particularly like the idea, but then again I don't like the idea of going deaf either. with the volume of concerts some of us go to (and mine pales in comparison to some board members) the thought must have crossed most people's minds.
so how often do you wear earplugs at concerts? of those of you who never wear earplugs, don't you worry about damaging your hearing?
and does anyone know anyone that has actually damaged their hearing from a lifetime of concerts without earplugs?
