Took my daughter to a Boyzone concert about 7 years ago. It was an
open air concert but the noise was still loud to me (even tho I had
my hearing aids turned off) I could feel the beat going through my
body. I didnt worry too much about my daughter as it was open air I
thought that would somewhat not damage her. However she complained
of tinnitus for the next few days. As far as I know, there was no
damage to her hearing but I never took her to another concert.
Long long time ago when I was younger, I use to love being near the
speakers at a disco just to feel the beat. Probably made my loss
worse. Would be interesting if I could see my audiogramme from when
I was younger and compare them to todays.
