    I mildly crank it in the car, and my teens don't like it

    they like the music but don't like moderate volume

    wtf

    This needs to be remedied!

    Their coddled eardrums need a good reaming!

    Ear training begins tomorrow....at 4am! That’ll do it!

    They still have good hearing. Your volume is probably not moderate.

    I call myself old deaf guy for a reason. The motto used to be “if it’s too loud your too old”.

    Hmmm this is possible... I remember watching this test on television that the viewers at home could play along with, they had a wide demographic from young to old and played frequencies, they started with all their hands raised and the frequency got higher and higher, once they couldn’t hear it they put their hands down by the end only the young folks could hear it

    I think I was within range of my age group, although I swear I have permanent damage from headphones in my youth, dang Sony discman

    If it's too loud, you're too young!

    I can hear my kid around the corner when he drives home. And when he drives my car it’s a shock when I start it and Quinn NFN blasts out. It’s cool. I’m glad he’s into his own thing. Funny story is even though he never had an interest in playing music he’s a big listener and he’s starting to get paid to do B&W photos of rappers. Not bad for a high school kid.
    I think I’d be a little bummed if he liked the same stuff as me.

    Wish more kids understood the importance of hearing protection. Im 28 and have a good amount of hearing loss between years of live music (both attending and playing) and shooting firearms without earplugs. Now I carry a set of earplugs on my keys everywhere I go. Can’t afford to loose more

    I don't have much hearing agedness.

    They just don't make use of their hearing youth!

    I blame compression.

    My hearing is much better than it should be. A bit of tinnitus and still a good amount of frequency range. Music, diving, shooting, headphones, and life has taken its toll but not as bad as it could be. I almost forgot a torn tympanic membrane in my right ear has healed (took about 8 years) so I don’t get the kazoo sound at certain sound levels

    "dad this is good"
    ( dad turns it up )
    "turn it down!"
    no! if it's good, it's better louder!
    "aghhh!"
    isn't this great! (jams out)
    (youth covers ears)

    it's not my hearing

    I think they are uncomfortable with things sticking out

    When I was a lad living in Arkansas, I could hear deer before they knew where I was at. I was skinny, (boy I wish I was now) and could see by the light of the stars most of the time well enough to walk anywhere in the woods at night. I have seen it so dark though you could actually not see anything, and if you weren't following a rut in the road you were familiar with, you'd better just sit down and wait for daylight.

    It would be great if all of our senses would work as well as they did when we were new! I've read many a Zane Grey novel by the light of the moon shining through the window in our old farm house when I was a lad and supposed to be asleep.

    Countless gigs as an audience member and player, loud house parties, jobs in loud factories and threw Motorhead gigs and I have no problems, I have a slight tinnitus but not serious, which I put done to use of the iPod and in ear headphones, which I ditched when it became noticeable. It dies make me cringe when U see kids at open air gigs with ear defenders on, there is no need.
    I don't think any of my friends who have been goers all their lives suffer any problems, and we saw all the loud bands.
