    Probably more info than you wanted to know, but... :)

    My feeling is the amount of noise varies by user. One of the reasons, as I understand it, is from damage done to microscopic hairs inside your ears.

    Check out this graphs on this page: http://www.helpcharts.com/decibel-range-chart-info.html They give guidelines on how much noise you can stand and the duration. One chart is labeled: "Always wear hearing protection for anything over 85 dB!"

    All I can tell you is wear ear plugs or ear defenders when u'r using the leaf blowers, power tools, buffers and such.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the informative response! I'll probably go pick up a pair of muffs this weekend. I've been a little careless with my hearing and need to be more careful. Especially concerts and loud cars.

    Thought I'd update the link. I ended up in a used 2016 MKZ Hybrid. Their equivalent of Ruby Red :) with 25k miles on it. Sun roof, nav, 41mpg in town, quiet and no frigging horse power :( Oh well... win some, lose some... and at this point I feel lucky to have won as many fun rides as I did without killing myself :) 1020181231[1].jpg 1020181227[1].jpg
