My First Top B (This year)

I went.

Loads of people I knew.

All fun.


Music too loud.

Ears ringing dreadfully.

Get earplugs from TSG.

Feel a right Pillock.

Went home.

Am I allowed to have a go at TSG for letting it get too loud?

Am I also allowed to go back to bed?

  1. I always wear earplugs to stuff in the union, and never feel bad about it. Tinitus isn't much fun. It's noticable that although the music sounds crap normally, it's much better once you're wearing earplugs. I believe that this is because TSG all wear plugs when they're mixing it…

  2. If you're mixing a band you don't wear ear plugs. If you're doing a DJ event chances are we've got plugs in, yes, because we are there three and four nights a week doing things.

    On the music side of things… I'm sorry it got too loud Matt. I'll keep a closer eye on things… it will be sorted. My fault… cold seems to have added 6dB of muting to my ears

  3. I don't want to blame you Chris. I think it's just my hearing is screwed.

    Towards the end of the summer, I went to a club in London and the ceiling was 1 and a half feet from your head when you were on the dancefloor. This meant that the speakers were 12 inches my head, and they were WAY too loud.

    I think i've had tinitus since then (well, badly anyway, and POSSIBLY more consistant).

    Skool Dayz (end of week 1) and last night are the only times I've been to a union evening event this year, and I've had loud tinitus after both nights. I expect this is a recurrance from that club in London, so my hearing is now COMPLETELY screwed.

  4. From one sound engineer to a fellow techie get it checked NOW. if you experience a temporary threshold shift (TTS) then it's not to terrible, when it gets provoked by recurring loud levels you have potential concerns and it may be necessary to wear ear plugs more often than you'd expect in order to keep your hearing for the future. It actually scares me to see people dancing up against the speakers because of the damage they will be doing, and very rapidly at that. We have the power to maim our ears very quickly these days, lets not start life with maimed ears.
