Fifty bucks up into thousands. Newer mixers let performers control “me mix” from their phones

Some may call you boring, others may call you wise. Let's see which group is still able to hear a few decades down the road.

The show I was running last night, I was instructed to be loud. I ran the FOH system at average ~99dB all night. I use a pretty decent app on my phone for measurements, which is sufficient for ordinance

I have a set of SE215, not expensive in the scale of IEMs, and I think they are excellent. I know not as high quality sound reproduction as higher models in the lineup but they do a great job for monitoring and tracking

Have you ever experimented with in-ear plugs that you can open up a small port to allow some sound through? These attenuate around -20 dB when port is opened for most of the models.

What do they do for limiting decibels in loud environments. Do they cut back on things over 85?

Loudness is usually controlled by city ordinance. Around my area that is not louder than 100dB! A 2- hour gig at 100dB is damaging to hearing

That’s pretty cool! I imagine the feel is directly related to sub-harmonic frequencies present (or not) on the manufacturing floor

I work with heavy equipment when I'm not in the studio. I also do a lot of renovation at a 1938 house we just moved into. I have the best hearing protection and use it. Even consistent low volumes can harm (think casino)

It was! Very fatigued though, even with earplug attenuation

To be fair, the first two are maybe not boring but irrelevant to most. The last one however should be taught in school.

If you are interested about in ear attenuators, here’s 20% off. has hearing protection for musicians that allow sound through at reduced SPL

In my other “real” world in manufacturing typically anything above 85 decibels requires hearing protection with all the other OSHA junk. I think everyones comfort threshold is a little different.

Thanks! I’ll try to post a pic of mine. Again, very expensive but made to a mold of your ear. They last forever (if your an adult).

One place I go to has visual decibel meters throughout the manufacturing floor. It is interesting to see what registers on the meters compared to how the loudness “feels”

Hey ! Today I’m thinking about “Protecting your hearing as a musician and sound engineer?” What do you do to prevent hearing loss when working in high sound levels for extended periods? Post, reply, and search with the hashtag

Today, what I’m really thinking about is when you are in situations that demand high SPL for extended times. In the studio this is easier to control than it is in live performance venues, especially when the performance expectation includes very loud.
