Can you not just wear earplugs? There's some pretty decent ones out there at a reasonable price, which do a good job in attenuating the overall sound (rather than just muffling all the HF). I bought a pair a few years ago, when I was going to see MBV on their reunion tour (three shows in the space of a week, would have been auditory suicide without them!).

I think the brand was Alpine, only 20 bucks or something. They worked so well I wished I'd thought of it when I was younger (before I shredded my ears with 2 decades of distorted guitars and dancing in front of bassbins in dingy techno basements!).

I may try some, thanks. The ones I have just muffle sound. Problem is, if it's not muffled, the decibel level might be high enough to still cause damage with my tinnitus. Hard to trust it, but I'll read more.
