Hard to say - but I guess these are custom made for him....

There are many many products out there - the cheapest ones are the 3M - which are used in the Army as well... just google for it!

Really good question - I would say every doctor would say it's harmful...

I play since 6 years - with my HD25 - and I'm about to buy something like Axwell because I'm sure it's harmful...

I don't thing that "ordinary" hearphones are that bad - I would recommend to buy inear phones - they are REALLY great - with good ones you hear nothing else but the music and thus you don't need to hear that loud...

Shure makes great earphones for example...

Next year is looking pretty tasty too: currently in the studio working on tracks he hopes to "present" to the world in 2010, life is looking pretty good right now for the friendly 31-year-old. Apart from one thing. He's developed every DJ's bete noire; tinnitus.

"It was bound to happen," he notes sanguinely. "But at the moment I can manage it. I'm obviously worried about my long-term hearing, but, for now, I'll live."

Doesn't sound good. I think Luke uses Earproof (http://www.earproof.com)

yes u need to get it before its too late...
i got these custom made ones that fits you ear better and has different filters. however it might result in you just raising the monitor level anyways, so it takes some time to get used to

whenever i put mine in i feel much more relaxed. loud music is stress and when i put my plugs in i feel a looooot better! really important nowadays. good music doesnt have to be crazy loud!
