Iíve done more damage to my hearing tig welding aluminum with a high frequency welder then probably anything else. It took so much concentration for me it wasnít until years later I became proficient enough to notice. It really did damage my hearing. Same time I was also tig welding copper another noise that I left unchecked because of the concentration it required. Iíve always worn muffs as earplugs hurt my ears. You canít wear muffs with a standard welding hood but you need to find some ear protection. Even now with my expensive hood and ear protection the noise aggravated the damage Iíve already done. Protect your ears, eyes and lungs! A high freq welder turned up to 300amps is a very unpleasant noise once you really take note.
