    This is a pretty good read. Lots of good advice in there.

    Great advice. One thing I do is keep ear plugs in my wallet. If I find myself in a loud situation I have protection. I wear ear plugs at every concert I attend. Not having ringing ears afterwards and not cringing while the band plays is great.

    On a sort of related note: Don't keep condoms in your wallet. They wear out from all the stress and might make you a parent.

    Excellent read. Wish I'd had/taken some of this advice when I was young. I have tinnitus now, and it sucks.

    His advice about dynamics is wise, regardless of one's hearing ability.

    Great read. I err on the overly cautious side so I haven't had much hearing loss that I notice, aside from the treble loss that accompanies age. I count myself lucky.
