      One of the most famous DJs once posted in his twitter that he has Tinnitus... and you can still watch him playing very loud music... does not seems to bother him that much.

      I saw that tweet too but I don't know if he really does because he doesn't wear ear protection when he performs

      I'm sure he has does have tinnitus. He use to never wear ear pro and also consumes alcohol so I'm sure his T could be moderately severe. Not sure how much his hearing has suffered though. He seems fine.

      That tweet is from 2012. Has he done anything to raise awareness after that?

      Stress.
      DJ Adaro had bad tinnitus and hyperacusis. It took him 6 months until it subsided and he could resume sound work. 8 months until he had his first show again.



      Recently got in contact with DJ Adaro. He said all was well.

      In the EDM scene few DJs and Producers what i've seen and heard, actively promote to wear ear protection at their shows or them self being role models and use some. Approx. 1 year since i was at a EDM show last but i really hope it has change some way.

      I know in Sweden anyway a large amount of musicians, producers went out in a joint debate article in newspapers for few years back telling about their way in a down spiral to being T sufferers but still working with music and wanted visitors to their shows using protective ear plugs.
