    Is there any rationalization out there to think some frequencies are more prone to damage the human ear? Maybe 2khz-6khz because the ear canal resonates in that region? Or maybe loud subbass because of the amount of energy it takes to hear it as well as the higher regions?

    i might be wrong but i think it more so has to deal with desible levels than frequencies. the pressure on our ears form it is what really screws over the little hairs in our ears that let us hear. but resonant frequencies might have a play with it.
