To whom asked this question,
First may i state that i AM NOT a doctor. Though i will admit i
have some knowledge in this area. What you experienced was probibly a
temporary shift in your threshold of hearing. Usually this returns to
normal over time. This time depends on the volume of music or noise and
the length of exposure. Being a musician myself and a dealer of very
high quality audio components, i get my hearing checked about every year.
By doing this, i can keep a record of how my hearing is changing as i
If you feel your hearing is permently damaged, may i humbly suggest
you see an audiologist. They are professionsals and can hopefully
conduct a full frequiency (20-20,000 Hz) check on your hearing and not
the about 50-7000 Hz test some hearing tests consist of. Thank you for
your time. It IS appreciated.
Enjoy the music,
