This is very true. Never try to override something that is loud with something that's even louder yet, in the long run your ears will be thanking you. Just get a nice pair of headphones such as the Sennheiser 280's They'll allow you to be able to hear your metronome by attenuating the ambient sounds of your drum kit. It's a win, win combination. There are a lot of different kinds of headphones used by drummers, but the 280's are really increasing in popularity and they also sound very nice for playing with music tracks.
