Default Earplugs - Noise cancellation

ok, this saturday i attended a VERY loud disco

i didnt know how loud it was till i got inside

but damn

i think it was over 126dB because i'm suffering from high frequency loss and experiencing a VERY intense tinnitus, can't stand it damnit.

i'm gonna go to the doctors tomorrow to see if i can repair or undergo some treatment because i don't want the tinnitus to affect me my whole life


but

do you know of anywhere i can get GOOD noise cancellation (atennuation) EARPLUGS? (i suffer from high sensitivity to common sounds too, "hyperacusia" we call it here..), i need something to use everyday so i can at least tolerate outdoor sounds...

any help will be appreciated

Permanent hearing damage doesn't occur unless it's long term exposure. Your high frequency hearing will come back in a week or so...

yeah but the tinnitus will not go away.


@iewed: active noise cancelling would mean a big apparatus with a battery, wouldnt it? then no, i'd prefer passive attennuation.

i've been looking for some etymotic er-20's but idk if anybody has them..

I wouldn't consider that much... I've sat in front of a concert speaker for nearly 7 hours once. Freaking thing was probably pumping at least 110db... I got my hearing back a week later...

Default Re: Earplugs - Noise cancellation

http://www.espamerica.com/ if you are looking for active electronic noise cancellation. And no, they don't have to be big, they are basically a big hearing aid-size, and run on a hearing aid battery.

I have a pair of analog ESP electronic noise-canceling earplugs, and they are GREAT. *Very comfortable, you forget you have them in. *I use them with shotgun and other types of shooting, and they give great protection from loud noises, as well as increased perception of quieter noises for me. *Not sure how well they'll work with constant noise over 130dB, because above a certain threshold they can't keep up with canceling the noise and actually shut off to protect from that noise. *Like with a gunshot, they cut off for a very short time, while the noise from the gunshot is present, and then cut back on again. *So I'm not certain how they would function with a constant noise that is too high, but see my last paragraph here for that.

Also, like I mentioned, for me they boost quiet noises. *But with the output volume being adjustable, you can just turn down the volume and it should help with quieter noises as well. *Say for example that I set them to 70dB, they amplify everything below and cut down everything above that volume, and the set level is adjustable. *They can also possibly custom set a pair to give a different volume range, such that maybe it'll always be a lower volume than the standard plugs, but they can give you more answers about your specific needs.

But the company is owned by a good friend of mine named Jack (we became friends only after having business dealings first, in full disclosure), and he's a great guy, and could answer all of your questions about them and see if they are right for you. *He won't lie and try to sell you the things if he doesn't think they'll help you. *I haven't tried in quite a while, but every time I've ever called the company, Jack answers the phone himself. *Hope this helps, good luck with your hearing.

110dB to 130dB isn't just ~20% more noise, it's 100 times more noise. *Literally 100x as loud at 130dB as it is at 110dB. *And 130dB for 3 hours is enough to cause damage, I've seen ~120dB quoted as the level necessary for damage from short-term exposure.

I know, 3dB is almost twice the previous amount of energy/intensity.

Those active earplugs are WAY over my budget, i know they're my ears, but i do not have that kind of money.




@wes: won't even bother answering you.
