          Not really had any hearing problems , I know tinnitus can be an issue but my use of machinery is now minimal and long stretches are staggered even the machines i use don't sound particularly raucous , I wear safety glasses , chain saw helmet and a dust mask as required but ear defenders seem to affect my balance and vigilance .
