No, your ears never "get used to it". Loud noise is always damaging. Hearing loss usually shows up later with the continual assault of loud noises. A VERY loud noise can cause almost immediate damage.
So now I get new hearing aids about every three years for the price of a nice custom rifle.

Wish I had learned the importance of a hearing protection 50 years ago rather than about 35 years ago.
