@DouginRB: May I suggest a low tech solution?  Those little spungy things that you roll between your fingers before inserting into the ear canal work quite well...

I've tried them -- they really don't seem to have much effect as far as I can see (hear).

@Antedeluvian: Did you buy Joseph a pair of suppressors as well, or does his taste lean towards his mother's?

I don't know if it's just the younger generation, but Joseph seems quite happy with his earbuds in his ears -- he's impervious to anything that's going on around him -- plus in the car he tends to go into hybernation and sleep most of the journey -- he's great to have as a travelling companion because you rarely even notice he's there.

May I suggest a low tech solution?  Those little spungy things that you roll between your fingers before inserting into the ear canal work quite well - and the are really cheap.

I once escorted my son to a rock concert.  The bass was so loud that I could literally feel it move my shirt against my chest.  The high end was painful.  Those little spungy things worked wonderfully to remove all pain and I was not an embarassment to my son.  Can you imagine walking into a rock concert with those flight-line ear muffs?  Sorry, I love my son too much to do that to him.

The little spungy things don't help much with the bass, but I suspect that those huge beasts you love don't either.
