    Default Headphone Advice for someone with Tinnitus

    Hey Everyone

    I want to purchase some nice good headphones but need some advice.

    I suffer from Tinnitus in both my ears ( funnily enough its from listening to loud music all my life and working in clubs!)

    Anyway should i purchase some In ear Headphones or regular type of dj headphones? And can you also recommend some as well.

    Thanks

    it'd probably be in your best interests to ask your Otologist / Neurotologist.

    although there might be a few people here who have experience with your problem, none of us know your medical history or the severity of your condition and you could end up adding further injury to yourself.

    Ask him for custom made in-ear monitors that double as ear protection. These help to monitor at relatively low volumes even in loud clubs. Ultimate Ears are supposed to be great. Pretty expensive, but your ears should be worth that kind of money.

    don't see the whats funny about having tinnitus when you listen to loud music all your life, kind of logical..
    firstly, you should really really get some professional earplugs if you don't already have 'em! otherwise you hearing damage (which you already have!!) will stay getting more..
    then you can use any kind of headphone, I like the hd25's
    don't have any experience with the in ears, but these could as well bring a solution

    This is the guy who worked at UE before they got bought by logitech. You'd probably be fine with the cheapest one (400$), I wouldn't spend more for a set of IEMs for DJing.

    ??????. You have tinnitus, you should forget about headphones and a loud enviroment like a club or airport, sometimes i just do not understand..... Put earplugs and mix with traktor and sync function if it is the way you earn money for living, otherwise (Unless you want to be deaf and never listen to music or anything) find another hobby IMO.
