Re: Ringing in ears after concert.
I went to a concert several years ago in a small venue. I pretty much sat on the edge of a stage in front of a few stacks of Marshall amps. With that said, I had horrible ringing in my ear for 3 days. It was painful on top of it. In all it took about 2 weeks to get my hearing back to normal.
I have been to hundreds, possible a thousand or so concerts. At 32 I have about a 40% hearing loss. If you are an avid concert goer PLEASE wear earplugs. Yeah, they look stupid, but it beats having to get a hearing aid before you are 50.
