After 40 years round jets (pretty up close and personal!) my hearing is not of the best, last time I was checked my hf was about 16k but I suspect it's now down to about 12. Hi fi it ain't! It's mainly background and pop anyway, for serious listening I've got a £300 set of Sennheiser cans.

Not quite as bad as that - when I was in my teens I spent a lot fewer years standing in front of a Marshall guitar amplifier on a regular basis. I was repeatedly warned that I was damaging my hearing 'it will come home to roost' etc. but plaing the blues was more important at the time (foolish me).
Now, it is duly coming home to roost - hearing aids not far off, I fear.
I find Bose much too bass heavy, even for pop, and I object to paying Bose sort of money only to have to use an equaliser!
Thanks, I was looking for a more versatile device. I do have an RNIB Talking Watch, if only I could the instructions on how to set it up!
when I was a college H&S Officer I did some checks on a lunchtime concert by the college pop group, just for fun.
Had it been a commercial undertaking I would have just cut the power, if only to protect the audience! The only time I saw readings like it was in the cockpit of a two seat army helicopter, louder even than jets.
