About five years ago, I hit an unexpected wall that no creative person should ever have to go through. The average night club can range from 100DB to 115db, with Sankey’s boasting a wholloping 120db output.
The problem DJs face is that their near field monitors are usually under-powered, over-cranked and at very close proximity to the head. In late 2007, I was at the top of my DJ game, playing 3-4 gigs per week, traveling throughout the world and making a pretty good living playing music. That fear, and the realization that DJing was making things worse, triggered me to change my lifestyle and significantly reduce noise.

Tinnitus  is the medical term for the perception of sound in one or both ears or in the head when no external sound is present. Yes, excessive exposure to noise through DJing can (and does) cause tinnitus, however there are many things you can do that will significantly reduce, if not eliminate most of the risk. This practice actually provides a unique opportunity as well, as it gives the DJ an idea of how the master system sounds and if it needs to be tuned.
When I was in a band I always put them in without fail - not only could I actually hear what I was playing better as it cut out all the white noise distortion, but saved me from hearing damage and the ringing in my ears for a day afterwards. I went to my first gig at Wembley to see Gun N Roses and came out with my ears ringing badly for over a day. Maybe I've got especially sensitive ears and noticed it more, but I found it uncomfortably loud, to the point where I wasn't enjoying it as much. So you didn't do loads of shrooms, spliffs and beer then put you head next to Dimebag's PA during 'Mouth for War'?


What about climbing the barrier at a Megadeth gig, in front of the PA and diving head first into the crowd.
I was at an Iron Maiden gig, at the front, and there was a guy near me with bleeding ears during Slayer, who were the support.
Imagine this – you are at the top of your game and getting gigs with a rising reputation when a physical challenge of hearing loss threatens to derail and possibly end your promising career.
Chances are most of you have experienced the sensation of ringing in your ears after a particularly loud concert. These factors mean very high SPLs and DBs in mid to high frequencies, which can cause real problems if not managed properly.
Instead of gigging full time, my focus turned to this site and today, I feel significantly more fulfilled helping others DJ but for many, tinnitus may mean the end of a career completely. By keeping your monitors on throughout a set, your ears naturally fatigue, demanding higher volumes to produce equal results.
All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Also when playing on stage, it's a nightmare if it's so loud that you're standing right next to the drum kit and can't actually hear him play, you can only see what he's doing as there's jut so much noise from the amps, rig and stage monitors that it all just blends into white noise. Full time DJs know that it can take up to 1-3 hours after a gig before the ringing finally goes away. Unfortunately, for some people, that persistant buzz never disappears. Having something taken away from you without choice was profoundly depressing and took a while to get over. Tinnitus can be intermittent or constant-with single or multiple tones-and its perceived volume can range from subtle to shattering. Packing gigs back-to-back will layer on the damage and never give the ears a decent chance to recover.


For most DJs, limiting set lengths is not an option but if you are having problems this may be a compromise that saves a career. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. Pop a set of ear plugs in and suddenly you can actually hear what your fellow band mates are playing.
No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude!
I just got two blobs of tissue paper, wet them and scrunched them up into little balls and stuck them in my ears.
This condition is called tinnitus, and can range from barely noticeable low tones to disturbing high frequencies that end careers.
Suddenly, in the middle of the day, a high-pitched frequency would fade in as if someone had turned on a miniature synthesizer in my head.
What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted. They stayed damp through the entire gig and did a perfect job of killing the unnecessary damaging volume, especially at higher frequencies. After three minutes or so it would drift away, but the fear was ever present: what if this doesn’t go away?
