This is a common after-effect of live music events and is referred to as tinnitus, (also known as "I can't hear you, I'm like deaf.") That's when high-fidelity earplugs like Vibes come in. They're designed to protect your ear against any sort of damage without making you miss a beat (hah, pun intended) as you are able to fully listen to and enjoy your concert experience.
