    I’m not saying you are at the extreme end of the spectrum, but for most people it starts with mild avoidance and fear towards safe sounds, and...

    Come on @Jazzer you know that we are not advocating for people to harm themselves with damaging sound levels.

    The mind can create all sorts of problems if the belief is strong enough and this is well documented. The nocebo effect is one such example and...

    Almost. But I think what made it worse was that the music in the store was coming out of a not very good, tinny speaker system maxed out. This was...

    Would you say the music in the store was louder than the music of the live band? I'm glad we don't have many of stores like that here..

    I prefer to stay in the hills, so to speak. I choose nature. It's quieter and healthier. Too many noisy morons around for my liking in urban areas...

    75 dB environment with ear plugs can not cause a spike! There must be something else going on here that you don’t realize. If you had plugs that...

    There is NO WAY cinemas are hitting 130 dB. That's essentially the record for loudest concert ever. I was at a bar yesterday for St. Pats that...
