My post didn't show that's why I just commented on it.

I also have some triple flange ones from Etymotic that reduce all the frequencies about 10-15 dBs and they are very reasonably priced.

After going to 100's of concerts over the last 50 years and I have plans for many many more, I need to preserve what hearing I've still got. It's still great !!! What ?

The reviews are mixed at the Amazon link here. All I can say is that they've worked for me, front row at a number of shows.

I wear earplugs to concerts all the time. I would hate to imagine what my hearing would be like if I didn't. Don't have any specific suggestions but get ones that reduce the volume but let all of the frequencies through.

You clearly haven't read this thread. There are a few varieties of plugs that allow all the frequencies through, just at a reduced decibel level. Also, hearing loss is cumulative and once it's gone, you ain't getting it back, music lover.

You’re too macho!
You’ll be the deafest macho man on your block in 40 years!

We all need these when we get mature and know the consequences.

All because i didn't think about my hearing when I was in my teens to early 20's. I wish I had earplugs for shows, and I wish I hadn't cranked up those Sony Walkmans.
Hate to sound like the old deaf guy. In MY DAY, you could hear someone carrying on a conversation a block away.... and when I was a kid, pre-music I remember being able to hear people talking a block away.
I could be a lot worse off, I suppose. I'd say I have 80% of my hearing. Don't have to really crank the TV to hear dialog...jjust a little, and can enjoy music at a low volume. The thing that I definitely notice is like I wrote above - conversations in a crowded room, or lots of ambient noise. I'm no fun at parties. Or conferences.

$25 per set, and they have 3 levels of sound attenuation. Unlike foam ear plugs, which just reduce the decibel levels across the board, these plugs retain the high fidelity sound while dropping the decibel level so you don't do permanent damage.
I love 'em! And I don't even get a commission when I recommend them!
