Excerpt from article:

[D]epending on volume and duration, the harm caused by very loud music can either be temporary, lasting up to 48 hours, or more permanent: “If you go to a hard-rock concert, and it’s really loud and your ears are ringing when you go home or you feel like you’ve got cotton in your ear, that’s not as worrisome as someone who listens to blaring music at top volume, day in, day out, who is more likely to have permanent damage to the receptor cells in the inner ear.”
