Hearing loss due to shooting without hearing protection is irreversible. Once gone, it's gone forever. I'm a retired safety manager (one of my jobs/responsibilities) and I'm guilty of it myself. I've lost 50-65% of my mid range hearing due to not wearing protection when I was young. I'd shoot my 357s and 44s for hours and my ears would ring until they hurt. That's nerve damage taking place. If I were you, I'd start wearing it every time I shoot. Every time! FYI...even if your ears aren't ringing, it's accumulative damage.
