Both: Definitely temporarily damaged. If ringing does not go away or you feel like your ears are stuck "plugged" or hearing is diminished for more than 2-3 days, then permanent. Listen at a reasonable level. If you listen at loud levels for extended periods of time (or extremely loud levels for even very brief periods of time), you'll have permanent hearing loss and regret it.
