Is everyone aware how hearing damage occurs. It's not how loud it is, but rather how loud it is over a period of time.

A little bit of loudness over a long period can be more harmful than a very loud sound over an extremely short time.

Take the time to check over this chart. Or otherwise expect me to "turn a deaf ear" when you start whining later in life that you can't enjoy music anymore.

Etymotic blue eyes plugs are vg. I have bought lots of 50 and sell half at retail (2x cost) then I give the other half away to friends who need them.

When in doubt, plug em up. Also best to put in the plugs before you enter the environment therefor avoiding the sudden drop in surrounding volume. This is the single greatest complaint of people who don't like ear plugs
