Our ears also have built in compression of sorts. A protection mechanism. As a long time recording engineer I can attest to it. Mix for hours then take an hour break and come back and everything seems louder.

I still think that when a singer sings especially when they are loud they cause their ears to start compressing or limiting to the point where they feel they constantly need more level. Another person can walk into the pattern and it will seem way to loud.
