I'm a bit paranoic recently, i already have some tinnitus (due to all the concerts in the past) and i'm worried about the volume of the music... so i was going to buy an SPL online,

May i trust it (the spl, not the shop XD)?

Thanks.
 
Due the fact that i live in italy, i can't get one from usa (duties ecc).

They work very well and are far cheaper than a meter, that just tells you what you know to be too loud, is.

I wasn't looking for something to wear on gigs (thanks anyway ^^, i'm already using some plugs) but something to determine how many db came out from my headphones. Right now i'm on 7/50 on a cowon d2+ with an open headphone (reverse modded ms1i) xD
