You might as well chance your arm at sueing. It seems very popular nowadays.

Yeah, but does anyone want to be "the prick that sued the George?"

Someone said :
I never seen anyone wearing earplugs in a club in 2007.

But sure?? You only went to the George?

Someone said :
I didn't go to any loud clubs before I started going there. I never went to any concerts or listened to loud music on earbuds. I only went to The Dragon a few times before I went to the George.

Have you had tests done that it's not a degenerate condition? Hearing deteriorates as you get older so going to a nightclub a few time some years ago may not be to blame.

Why the hell not? Are they some sort of charity?

I asked lots of people from my generation who went to other clubs not just in Dublin but all over the World. They all generally said "Earplugs.. what?? why would you wear earplugs into a club?" Some of these people would consider themselves very smart people too so it wasn't the case that they were being foolish. They just thought it was normal to do that and weren't being informed of the risks when they walked it the door. Looking on the websites of many clubs now I see no-one wearing earplugs in any photos of patrons at the club.
This is the same too in mobile phone ads which often feature young people at gigs with no ear plugs in. The same goes for scenes in films and TV shows where characters are at a club or loud music venue. All this create the impression that it is normal to do this when it's actually like sunbathing with no sunscreen. It's even worse than that really as sunburn heals but damage to the inner ear haircells is permanent.
Frankly I think it's ridiculous that a person should have to wear earplugs to a club or concert. These people are often drunk so it's not right to expect them to remember to do that. Why not simply turn the music down a to a safer level. If the venue is playing music at 115 dbs and everyone wears earplugs that reduce it to 90 dbs what was the point in playing it that loud in the first place?

Well no? You said.

So it's all hearsay?

http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/tinnitus/symptoms-c etc ...

The mayoclinic says if you suffer from tinnitus and hearing loss you should see your doctor .
But from reading it , seems to point the finger at iPod and MP3 use as much as concert noise ( I presume it considers that venue noise is policed) but the hearing loss and tinnitus go hand in hand.

I'm sorry OP but your posts appear like ill informed, inane rants. The danger of loud noise and music to hearing has been well known for several decades now. Back in the 1980s the risks of playing Walkmans too load and the effect on young people's hearing was well publicised.

People have been going to loud bars, clubs and concerts and using earplugs for decades. Long, long before 2007. I'm living proof of that.
