    I think that in several clubs in Beijing the sound is not good or too loud. I went to a Club 2 weeks ago with friends. My friends left cause it was too loud. I stayed, i regret, it s now 2 weeks that i have a fucking noise in my left ear. In France, we have law about the sound, if it s too loud the Police can close ur the place. We only have 2 ears for one life, but we like to hang out. So, i just want to know what U, people, think about? too loud or not? shall we inform the "laoban" of these places to do something? or???

    I love dancing very very much and that's the only reason I would like to go to clubs sometimes, but agree with you, the soundsystem is too loud. I refuse anyone who tries to talk with me in clubs because they just want to enhance their tones to make sure you can hear them, so I kind of feel their voices pierce my eardrums. @~@

    Do inform the "Laoban" to lower the sound if you have chance!

    I think I'm going deaf from standing next to speakers 3-4 times per week for two years. But blaming the proprietor of a club is just irresponsible. I blame myself. Go ahead and inform the boss. They'll laugh you out of the club. But they probably won't hear you, anyway.

    Better to have a law like France to regulate the sound effects.

    Let people enjoy the fun, and at the same time diminish the ear damage to the minimal as possible.

    no legislation here as far as i know
    its too loud when i first started going to clubs. now it seems..normal..i'd prefer lower tho.
    lao ban think if the music isnt loud, it's not re nao enough
    loud music draw ppl's attention so they'd come in and check it out.
    or the club next door is loud so the boss wants to be louder...then it turns into a competition!

    Aurelien, i did a lot of clubs in beijing, i think the more dangerous are Bling and Vics... destroy Ur ear for sure...
    Pete, U re right the first to blame is me, i should left with my friends. Alteration of perception is one of the effect of alcohol eheh...
    anyway, that s one of the reason why legislation are sometimes a need, because people are not always responsible of themselves about the question of health. We have law for cigarettes why not for ear?
    So, just take care of U and of Ur ear, talk about the problem to Ur friends and maybe buy a good ear protection, that s what i do... and hope that things will move, just let do some noise around the question ;-)

    Well, as far as I know, the anti-cigarette law in our country has ONE bad side. Now it smells fucking bad in the clubs, as there is no more smoke to cover the smell :P

    But anyway, I agree. Sometimes you get out there and it fucking hurts.

    In both Hong Kong and Australia, they have legislation about noise in public area, e.g. outside clubs, or next door neighbour, and the police can step in if necessary ... the law cannot reach inside privately owned areas, but at least they are more sensible about controlling noise than here... my guess is, unless someone gets very sick or their eardrum starts bleeding, no one would do much about it ... and quite often, you can hear the loud music from the PSP or MP3 next to you, on the bus or in the subway, and I have wondered what had happened to their hearing ...

    if you wanna quiet you 'd better walk in park instead of in a club!

    HEAVEN
    i like clubs, concerts and music! i just don t want to be deaf... U know, after different analysis, the generation of the 70's, with the appearance of the big sound system, is suffering of trouble of the audition! That s why, the government did a law. It becomes a problem of public health. More and more people have a "wenti" eheh... shenme? ;-) ni shuo shenme? wo ting bu dong... man, don t forget that ur ear is one of the basic tool that u use to communicate. So, we maybe should take care of... I m musician, so if i become deaf, heaven could become hell. ;-)

    Use a strong parfum.

    Winnie and pete,
    about the proprietor, they are not always laughing, if i perform in Club, and think it s too loud, i try to talk to the boss. several times they listened and put less loud. But sure if i m customer, they say "sure man" and add a "eheh" when u leave, and don t hear me, as u say. That's why i m on the side of a legislation.

    我同意你的说法,我回国后就去过一次,没有再去过那里。我不喜欢中国的CULBS。在德国也不是这样的。只能这样说,喜欢去的就去,不喜欢我就不去,CULBS在中国已经变了味。具体什么味道。。。。。

    FMS,
    what is a rubbish?

    Trista
    i like to hang out, i want to enjoy, if my ear are doing iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiihhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, the next day, i don t like... and just to inform people, when ur ear is destroy, u cannot recover, in Ur inner ear u have a kind of hair if they are break, they are break... U become more and more deaf...
    so, if u love music as i love, take care of ur ear!

    Jochen,
    for sure, the quality of the sound in europe is really better than in china, but let the time to china to learn. By experience, in 3 years here, with more than 400 concerts, i maybe met 3 or 4 sound engineer who know what they talking about. Sometimes i m desperate, last week i said to a man that he should be gardener and not sound engineer...
    And about the night life, Clubs are clubs, so, people dance, drink, seduce, and more.

    just remember, be curious, hang out, and take care of u
