The Voice Contestants, Judges, Loud Music, No Hearing Protection? Is This a Complete Brain Problem?

      As I sit here and watch The Voice, not one of the contestants have ear protection while up on stage with the instruments blasting!

      Makes me wonder does this crap have anything at all to do with the ears, or just a complete brain problem.

      I know it comes from the brain but wonder if ears play zero in tinnitus?

      Seems like these people would be getting ringing after this...

      Judges sit there all year and no protection....just a thought....could this have absolutely nothing to do with auditory at all?

      I've also wondered the same thing. Why do so many of us get this and others don't? I went to a lot of concerts and listened to loud music all my life, but so did all my friends and not one of them have this, just lucky me

      being on a show like that as a one time deal probably exposes you to 100-110 db for ~20 minutes. That's no problem for 99% of the population, it's like being stuck outside in a thunderstorm or something.

      Tinnitus Since:
      In reference to The Voice, I often crank it way up on the sound system. Seems to have absolutely no effect on my Tinnitus later that evening or the following day(s). But then again, when you were a kid, did you ever experience prolonged ringing in the ears after a real loud or extended noise, where other kids with you were seemingly unaffected? 'Tis a mystery!

      Louis Walsh has come out and admitted he's losing his hearing and said being a judge on the X Factor contributed to his hearing loss.That dude Zayn Malik I think his name is?Anyway he's admitted that he left one direction because he has Tinnitus from all the screaming fans.Brian Johnson has hearing loss,Tinnitus and Hyperacusis.

      It's not that it's a brain thing it's just ignorance on their part.Louis doesn't have T,Zayn does and also Brian.Simple answer is Louis just got far.
