So when we do a DJ event most of us have backup equipment incase a piece of equipment stops working or becomes damaged but one thing we can’t do that with is our hearing, once it’s damaged there is very little we can do and as DJs that is a scary concept.
So, how can we find out if our hearing is damaged?
What can we do to help protect our hearing whilst DJing?
What is tinnitus?

If you are in the market for some earplugs we here at Online DJ we recommend Thunderplugs as they filter the music well but still allow you to hear the music, wear headphones and have conversations.
