GamerLegion player: "Flashbang sound frequency and loudness are triggering tinnitus"

Patrik "Zero" Žúdel, a player of GamerLegion, on his Twitter drew attention to the loud sound emitted when the flash grenade blasts. He complained that this was causing hearing loss and suggested that Valve fix the problem.

Žúdel noted that the problem he described is widespread. As evidence, he cited numerous complaints from players on Reddit.

Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski from Liquid replied to Zero's message, suggesting using the volume equalizer.
