messed up going to a loud restaurant (75-85dba). Can barely hear my car stereo over the road noise and ringing. Jun 25, 2022

        I just sat in my car without earplugs and turned up my stereo until it felt what I can remember it felt like at the restaurant. My watch showed ~65dba. It sounded incredibly loud.

        Yeah that’s enough. Someone just has to close the door and place a cup down next to me to set mine off. I guess I’m just used to the constant fluctuations in volume and tones. No day is the same.

        @kingsfan Glad to hear your feeling a bit better. Covid had me bed ridden for like 4 days last summer. It's rough cause anything stacked on top of T and stress seems unsurmountable. I'm glad you've decided to ride with us a bit longer. I sincerely hope you can find the physical and mental healing you are in need of during this stressful time.

        They're not even using it for the usual tinnitus explosion/gunshot effect. It's being used when a character is having a sort of mental-breakdown moment, and there is absolutely no warning when it starts.

        @TheDanishGirl While outside pumping gas yesterday, I counted at least 3 in each eye. I don't know if that is considered a lot. I've had them for a long time now, though I think I do have a couple new ones recently.

        I would consider that in the normal range. But they always suck. I have an uncountable amount myself. Like 50 or more maybe, and some are long strings and quite large. I know I will have a vitrectomy eventually. Mine gets worse over time.

        If your finger slides around on the filter when you put them in they can be noisy. I think I told you that I would get my fingernail stuck to them a lot and it would make a really loud snapping sound. You have to be careful putting them in.

        Yes everything should sound clear but just turned down a bit. I have the 19's and they don't really do much. I don't ever wear them. The 31's are clear enough to have a convo while giving better protection.

        The occlusion isn't great on these but the deeper you can get them in, the less you'll hear it. Perhaps try a smaller size earpiece. The problem with these is they are universal so you may not get a perfect fit. I have problems with my right ear with these, but they got the job done.
