Working FOH at too high levels, with stage amps blazing at muso's rear ear knees (and straight on at my face) left me feeling thick, dampened, pluggy, not too far off if one were to drive into the mountains.

I read a trick once, before you are going to do any monitoring/foh/mix etc, throw some earplugs in an hour before hand... so to bring the noise floor of your inner ear doooooown, and maybe be a bit more sensitive or receptive allowing your perception to be clear and not muddied. I've been doing it and I like how it works for me.
