For years I've had this horrible ringing in my ears, seriously, at night it sounds like a freight train whistle is going off in my head. I've avoided going to concerts or any loud venues simply because I couldn't take it anymore.

Many people have suggested that I just wear ear plugs to shows, but come on, how lame is that? Turns out, the stigma isn't that bad and there's a great product for this situation.

A listener informed us of these plugs that he uses at shows. They're called DUBS Acoustic Filters, these plugs lower the volume without having sacrificing the clarity of the sound.

They're available online at Amazon and also at Best Buy for $25, I'll be getting a pair before I head off to see Rush.
