I'm interested if there are any products that can be recommended so that I may enjoy live concerts (eg, rock) without a major loss of fidelity and enjoyment such as with ear plugs.
Due to inner ear disorders (well known to me and my doctors), I experience 2-3 days of tinnitus, vertigo, blurred vision, ear fullness, and nausea after a typical Green Day or Who concert for example. I know that I'm not the only one affected by loud volumes. Using ear plugs, the overall volume is safely muffled, but they seem to block the upper middle to higher frequencies disproportionately and are unsatisfactory to appreciate the music. I'm wondering, are there any solutions out there that can reduce the overall SPL delivered to the ears while maintaining the frequencies created by the musicians?
Come to think of it, more often than attending concerts, some movie theaters (with certain movies) have played reference or seemingly louder causing me to plug my ears with my fingers for protection. I'm hopeful there is a recommendation, thanks.
