DJs live or die by their hearing. I watch DJ sets online and wince at the thought of my fellow selectors stood with their heads almost in these huge speaker cabinets. Having recently started a club night *cough* shamelesspromotion *cough*, with a custom built (and very loud) PA, I’ve been giving a lot more thought to protecting my ears. Writing this story got me to book a hearing test to see where I’m at with my ears (incidentally, I have OK hearing, with some loss at 500Hz in my right ear).
