Tiny Tech Tips: Why You Need Earplugs At Concerts
Old 17th March 2019
I used my earplugs a few years ago when I went to see Blue Oyster Cult.

My friend was moaning about tinnitus after the concert.

I pulled my earplugs out of my pocket and told him he should use some in the future.

Lives for gear
I was at a show a while ago and as the band took the stage, everyone dutifully popped their earplugs in. I looked and even the sound-guy, the bartenders and the waitresses were popping theirs in as well.

Sooo, turn it up way too loud and then everyone wears earplugs...makes perfect sense!

I did hear a different venue owner make the argument that when it's too loud to talk, everyone drinks more. Maybe we should all get some helicopter style headsets.
