Sometimes I feel my ears need burning.......it is a perceptual system, (that needs a reset) I know because I hear stuff that isn't there though it's here

The Ear's Protective Mechanisms

So us oldies can't hear you, but if you shout then it hurts.

Is that why old married men go around with pained expressions on their faces?

A buddy of mine who worked in a stereo shop in the 70s told me defiantly. Crank it up! Let them feel the bass! Then you can sell them the system.

Default Addressing OP question...

That is the purpose of alcohol. This works especially well with distilled spirits. First your throat burns a little, then your gut is warm. Repeat as needed until your ears have warmed up

Very interesting. A friend of mine has hyperacusis, I think that's connected with his tinnitus. I find I'm more sensitive to harsh sounds, and on a happier note, perhaps us oldies with our less tolerant(?) hearing are better able to judge subjectively the quality of our sound systems....

Yup, that's what we did. Made sure the treble was controlled so it didn't drive them outta the store.

Not trying to lay claim to anything but I was the first person I know who made a sub and satellite system (for their home) to control the bass without using the control or EQ. There were no powered subs back them, you built a bass box (in my case a coffee table) and gave it, it's own amp. You then made small, wall mounted speakers, hung a cap on them for protection and voila! Nobody could understand where all the bass was coming from.

This is in the days before the Minimus 7 came along.

I have a bunch of hair growing out of my ears and I tell my Canuck friends down at the bar, that I never had ear hair until coming to Canada and that I have gradually developed a bullsh*t filter.
