      Hi, further to my guitar post, I have always been very interested in DJing/mixing vinyl (70s, 80s, 90s soul, funk, hip-hop, r&b).

      I am not talking about doing crazy club gigs but just an at-home setup.

      Anyone out there who mixes music or spins vinyl with tinnitus? If so, what ear plugs do you use? What headphones do you use?

      I have been researching and the best, so it seems, is to go to an audiologist and inquire about professional musician earplugs. These are apparently moulds they create for your ear, custom and high fidelity so you can still hear the music via filters.

      Any insight, comments, opinions, experiences are welcomed and appreciated!

      Time to stop giving up on my musical dreams and perhaps just pursue them safely and cautiously. Acoustic guitar and mixing vinyl are two things I have always wanted to do long before I developed tinnitus 2 years ago. I would say my tinnitus is mild and main triggers are stress and caffeine.
