To whom asked this question,

     First may i state that i AM NOT a doctor.  Though i will admit i 
have some knowledge in this area.  What you experienced was probibly a 
temporary shift in your threshold of hearing.  Usually this returns to 
normal over time.  This time depends on the volume of music or noise and 
the length of exposure.  Being a musician myself and a dealer of very 
high quality audio components, i get my hearing checked about every year. 
 By doing this, i can keep a record of how my hearing is changing as i 
get older.  

     If you feel your hearing is permently damaged, may i humbly suggest 
you see an audiologist.  They are professionsals and can hopefully 
conduct a full frequiency (20-20,000 Hz) check on your hearing and not 
the about 50-7000 Hz test some hearing tests consist of.  Thank you for 
your time.  It IS appreciated.

     Enjoy the music,
