      Hi everyone.

      Today I was inserting my custom earplugs, they're plastic with foam tips, my finger slipped and my nail bumped into the plastic part.

      It sounded loud in my ear.

      I put my earplug up against my decibel meter and and recreated it.

      It read 104 dB.

      Should I be concerned about a permanent spike?

      there is no way that created a 104db sound. at all. zero. by that logic we'd all be deaf from eating potato chips, which crunch while we eat.
