i can safely say that they DO reduce a lot of frequencies more so than
others, esp. those squishy yellow kind. the frequencies that get knocked
off are the upper register sounds (cymbals, giutar solos, metal-boy
vocals), which is also the area that hearing damage occurs most easily.
the fact that you don't notice the difference between earplugs and no
earplugs in terms of registering frequencies, would suggest that you have
experienced damage to that range already.
