      Hi everyone ,

      I currently suffer from mild Hyperacusis and I did something a little dumb, I plugged my headphones into my phone and a message came on full volume - naturally I tore the damn things off my head straight away, but I got about a second and a half of full dosage but not anymore...

      I'm feeling fine at the moment but am worried about any setbacks , I usually use my headphones as a noise-guard and don't play any sounds through them, the stupid phone still had message notifications that I didn't know about ... Lesson learned!


      Feeling a little nervous after that ...needless to say has this happened to anyone else?

      Setbacks will happen. It's unavoidable. I have recovered from all of them so far :)

      They are not very useful as a noise-guard anyway... They might give you a feeling of protection, but dangerous sounds won't be stopped. Use proper earplugs.
