Music and Concert Ear Plugs

More and more music lovers are tuning into the fact that hearing protection is important. If you protect your hearing you will enjoy a lifetime of music. There are specialised earplugs that are designed for music-lovers and concert-goers. These 'musician's earplugs' do a great job of protecting your hearing and they let you hear all the sounds of your favourite music. Sometimes these are referred to as 'high fidelity' earplugs.


What makes these earplugs special?

These earplugs reduce the overall loudness for all frequencies (bass, mids, and treble) which helps avoid distortion. This is important for listening and playing music because all of the frequencies play a role in the music and must be heard, but not at dangerously loud levels. Ordinary earplugs, which are great for blocking out general noise, reduce the high and middle frequencies, which can make music sound distorted and of poor quality.


Not convinced these would work for you and your music?

Listen to a sound sample of music played through a 'high fidelity' ear plug, then through a standard ear plug and hear the difference for yourself. This audio demonstration was created by a Hearing Scientist named Dr. Elliott Berger who, along with his co-workers at E.A.R.©,have a great website with lots of cool audio demos for all types of earplugs. You can find them at www.aearo.com.
