Trombone’s shockwaves caught on film

I know some people will like this:the shockwaves from a trombone have been caught on film. It seems that the waves can travel about 1% faster than the speed of sound, or about 347m/s.
Next question: how much damage does this do to the hearing of anyone who’s sitting in front of the trombone? Any volunteers to test this?

    sure at the gig we could feel the pressure of the soundwave or whatever rattling through our body…shaking our teeth and reverberating through and through us…

    Amazing images – I saw Iggy & The Stooges on Saturday night and so I’m wary to think of the damage to my ears…
