earplugs



for the record, i *was* wearing earplugs \!/ eric's trip,
and i usually do wear earplugs \!/ gigs, it's dangerous
not to.  even with earplugs, the show was *too loud*.
wearing earplugs helped prevent any hearing damage, but
it couldn't do anything about a sound level that was
so high that it made everything muddy.  that's why i'm
complaining about it.  with or without earplugs, i
couldn't hear the *music*!

and catano, are you sure you can judge this frequency
question just by your experience?  the reason for your
perception that high frequencies get cut out more 
might be that certain high frequency noises that you
listen for aren't as *loud* as some of the lower ones.
so it might not be a matter of frequency.  it seems to
me that that would have to be measured experimentally
before you could be sure.  just a thought.
