hey pit. Yesterday I went to a concert and was pretty close to the stage. It was a great show but when I woke up this morning my ears were still ringing with my left prominently so. It feels like there's a cotton ball in it or water, and it's still ringing. It got a straight shot when I would turn my head to look to the right. Has this happened to anyone else and have your ears been ok afterwards? I'm young and have been to other concerts but my ear hasnt felt like this before. Thanks for the responses I really need your help

Go to a doctor immediately. It can go away on it's own, but if it doesn't, it will be too late...

Next time use ear protection...

Yeah it happens. Lasted a day and a half for me when i was on the barrier right in front of one of the speaker/p.a things.

I'll probably be more sensible in future, you should too.

When I went to Wolfmother in 2007 I stood right next to the PA, worst/best decision of my life. Could barely hear for like 3 days after haha. you'll be fine, just don't do anything loud today.

Wear earplugs next time!
You can even hear the music better when you plug those in.

It happens...it will go away after a day or two, depends on how bad it is.
Bring ear plugs instead and when you play live use in-ear monitors instead of the ordinary ones...

You guys hear that? There's some kind of echo in this thread...

Anyway, when I go to a concert (with my earplugs) I leave them in for a few songs and take them out for one I particularly like. Or for some guitar solo.

A strange thing with inner ears is they can take some stress but not too long. 120 dB for one minute is not as bad as 90 dB for a whole day. I'm not a doctor, so don't sue me if I turn out to be wrong, but that's what I'm told.

Congrats, you've learned that loud noises hurt your ears.


That sounds like a Sims 3 life goal...

If it doesn't clear up within the next few days, go to a doctor. It might be more serious than what you think.

The worst I had was when I went to see Queen + Paul Rodgers in Liverpool. Ears were ringing for a few days but I'm fine now.

Dont stand next to the speakers. Stand in the middle.
Ear plugs help.
But i don't use and my ears are fine... for now.

cherish it. You'll never be able to hear that frequency again.

Had ringing in my ears after a Metallica concert for a couple of days. Still have it slightly (2 years later). Maybe i had it before already and the concert simply brought my attention to it or it was caused by the concert (most likely). What can you do (besides not be an idiot next time)

U haz teh AIDS!
But seriousley, it's normal. As long as you don't go to shows that often you should be alright.
#23
I'm pretty sure i have tinnitus but fortunately it isn't in the "kill yourself" region :P (It apparently is THAT bad for some people). I have worn earplugs since when going to big concerts. As long as it doesn't worsen and i can still hear i should live but it would be awesome if they could find a cure :P

i stood infront of a PA speaker at the Sunn O))) grimmrobe gig earlier this year.
The force of the sound physically moved my hair.
You'll be fine, but i always wear earplugs for long term hearing benefit.
#25
I lost some of my hearing in my left ear after being too close to some PA in a small venue. Someone pulled a XLR out of a mic and it went BANG during the show. Couldnt hear anyhting for good 20 seconds, then had bad ringing for a good 3 months. It still rings, but nowhere near as bad.

Safe to say, I've ****ed my ears over good.

I'm a drummer, I've ALWAYS worn ear plugs, and if not, rolled up tissue. The one time I didn't wear them and it happened.

I carry a set with me all the time.

I went and saw Chimaira and Dethklok at the San Diego House Of Blues last year and stood right in front of the PA. My left ear was ringing for a good day or two after that.

It's whenever i read about it randomly online or in threads like this (!) that i remember i have it. You grow used to it pretty quickly (maybe mine just isn't that bad).

Yeah, I went to a My Bloody Valentine show and wore earplugs but they were playing at a really sick volume so my ears rang for a day and a half after that. You'll feel better soon, although I was told my by sound engineer friend that the damage is technically irreversible. I doubt it will affect your day-to-day life, though.

what are the in- ear monitors please explain me because i am just 15 year old very worried about this stuff .. and i already have tinnitus ... i never hear the ringing unless i press my ears i can hear it and sometimes it feels weird and stuff like that.. i currently have hearos high fidelity

I can hear a ring 24/7, it's something you can't fix, deal with it.

To avoid further ear damage wear earplugs if you must.

You know those big speakers on the stage that face towards the band and are like a PA system for the band? In ear monitors are basically those, except in your ear, a lot quieter, and soundproof.
