You raise a good point. I wear my peltor H10A external muffs -30db on top of my shure SE425 In Ear Monitors also -25db. Without the external added layer of the muffs on top of the Shure IEM's YOU WILL BE raising the volume to hear clearly thus hearing damage will happen. We loose our hearing on gradual.basis constantly. Even my own dad who.is in his mid 80's say the noise of a mower doesn't bother him nor does the shrill noise of a table.saw. But the fact remains he is going deaf. His TV volume is blasting as well as his speaker phone. Dispite being a high level former big brain math teacher whiz. The issue and.facts of accumulative hearing loss is lost on him.
