      In my personal experience there is a huge mental component to spikes after exposure to a loud noise. Your brain refocuses on the T because you are worried that its gotten worse. In most cases it hasnt actually gottten worse. But if it did, it's likely a temporary increase. I doubt that such a quick exposure would cause a spike, even without plugs.

      Nothing that a good nights rest wont fix. This is exactly the reason I advise not wearing headphones again once you've developed T because accidents do and will happen.

      Hope your T calms down and try to be more careful next time.
