In Real Life hearing protection exists for a reason. Exposure to 140 decibels (the loudness of gunfire) can cause pain and permanent hearing loss. That's why people at a shooting range typically wear earplugs.
Yet in fiction, even as badasses are using guns and explosives and outrunning explosions, they don't seem to be affected by the sound at all.
This is an Acceptable Break From Reality as no one wants to hear about the Bad Ass losing his hearing from trying to outrun a fireball or surviving a shootout. And no one wants to see him putting in earplugs or wearing gigantic earmuffs, either. Typically only coward-type characters will cover their ears while anticipating an explosion.

Subverted in The Boondocks, where, to highlight what an imbecile he is, Ed Wuncler III always forgets to put in his earplugs before an attempted heist, frequently damaging his ears when he fires his shotgun.

The baby in Shoot Em Up spends an entire film having guns fired around and beside him, but barely even cries- in reality, I'm pretty sure that'd deafen the poor tyke for life...
Maybe it has, right from the start, and that's why it doesn't seem to bother him for the rest of the movie.
For what it's worth, the baby can be calmed down with extremely loud heavy metal music.

Comes up in a book in the X Wing Series. Two of the Wraiths, Wedge Antilles and Kell Tainer, kill a probe droid using explosives and are deaf/semideaf for a while afterward, although their hearing returns slowly before the mission is over. It doesn't seem to have caused them problems later on. Of course, this is the Star Wars Expanded Universe. They probably have medical technology for that.

Averted in CSI Miami, where an explosion in a Meth Lab gives Natalia hearing loss, some of which may be permanent. More, her unwillingness to admit to it has an impact on events later in the season.
And yet, played all too straight by Horatio Kane, who finds himself walking calmly away from a massive explosion at least twice per season.

There is a simultaneous aversion and straight use of this trope in Utopia by Lincoln Child. In the end, Dr. Warne, the temporary Badass Bookworm kills a terrorist using a fireworks mortar as an improvised bazooka and stops the terrorist's armored truck by using his pet robot, which is carrying about 10 pounds of flash powder, as a suicide bomber. He is mentioned as suffering from bleeding ears afterwards but other than that, there seems to be no permanent damage. Realistically, noise of that magnitude should have rendered him permanently deaf almost instantly.

Averted in the finale of Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth, where deafening yourself with the blast of the BFG is used to solve the last puzzle and defeat the Load Bearing Boss. Played straight for the rest of the game, though, although madness-effects sometimes distort the audio throughout the game, as well.

In Policenauts, characters recommend Jonathan use hearing protectors on the range. While you get a different conversation afterwards where he complains that his ears are ringing, it causes no lasting effects, and in the actual game he can fire his gun freely without worrying about ear damage.

Played with in Half-Life - being too close to an explosion will result in a ringing sound, along with physical damage. Guns however, are unaffected.
And, in the first one, firing a gun inside an air vent is really freaking loud. Not enough to make you deaf, but it hurts your ears.

Averted in the Gaunt's Ghosts novel Necropolis, where a number of minor characters were permanently deafened by explosions.
Oddly, in the first book in the series, a number of soldiers from the same regiment were deafened in the exact same way, also "permanently", but the medical procudere for repairing the damage was quick and simple.

Mass Effect 2 had a mild aversion; being hit or almost hit with explosions resulted in a brief moment of soundlessness in the game. Otherwise played straight, but possibly justified in that they're military men and women who wear devices in their ears that serve as universal translators; presumably they're capable of filtering out noise as well.

In the movie Iron Man, during Tony Stark's escape from the prison camp at the beginning. Gun battles are noisy affairs in any case, but when you're walking around inside a metallic echo chamber... (Of course, since he's Tony Stark, he probably found the right parts in that box of scraps to build some kind of sound-damping system.)

The animated movie of The Hunchback Of Notre Dame plays this totally straight - while in the novel Quasimodo goes deaf after long exposure to the bells of Notre Dame, in the movie, nothing stops him from bursting into wonderful melodious song on a regular basis.

Partially averted in the Lost episode "LA X", in which the soundtrack is muted and a faint whining sound played over it to represent some characters having trouble hearing...for a couple of minutes, in the aftermath of a nuclear explosion.

Averted in the movie Children of Men after Theo witnesses a bomb go off in the street and we hear a sort of dull ringing in the background.

Myth Busters is generally good about showing the team using hearing protection.

Averted in an episode of Walker Texas Ranger, where one of his sidekicks loses his hearing after being near an explosion (What? Did you think such a thing would happen to Chuck Norris himself?). He eventually undergoes an operation that restores his hearing, but not before spending time at a school for deaf children.

Averted in the realistic movie Black Hawk Down, when one character is left mostly deaf for the rest of the movie after a 5.56mm M249 squad automatic weapon is fired from within a foot from his head.
Also happened to SPC Nelson in real life, though he was able to recover about 15 hours later.

Averted in The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, when the protagonist, Katniss, is deafened in one ear by an explosion and worries that it may be permanent.
