My high frequency hearing is damage too. But its only down to the fact not wearing ear defenders when should of done so. Yes they are a pain when to remembering to put them on. Or forgot to them with me and too knee to get the job done.Almost all construction sites are hard on the hearing. Equiptment generates a lot of loud noise. Welders have it bad in many ways. Their use of grinders and some plasma cutters are very damaging to the hearing without protection. My high frequency hearing is shot. 4 years of jets and 29 years in a power plant and shooting lots of guns over the years pretty much wrecked it. Althought since leaving the plant it has recovered some. When I was flying a lot of the hardest part for me wasn't the actual flying, learning the procedures and rules and such. It was the radio. Half the time I couldn't understand what people were saying. Flying into class C air space was not fun for me....
