Musicians and concert attendees put themselves at risk for serious eardrum damage and hearing loss due to the proximity of loud noises that surround them. Hearing protection ear plugs are a great way for you to protect yourself from this damage, and in many cases can even be used to enhance your experience should you attend a concert or play in a band.
After attending several concerts over the past few years – and trying out ear plugs along the way – I have found the perfect pair that can protect your ears while enhancing the richness of the music that surrounds you.

Etymotic Research has a rich history in the hearing aid industry, and is known for its methodical acoustic research. As a result, it should come as no surprise that these earplugs are so effective for musicians and concert attendees.
These earplugs manage to reduce most of the noise around you, while preserving the clarity of speech and richness of music – providing the protection you need, without diluting the sounds you want to hear. How? The ER20 ETY-Plugs Hearing Protection Earplugs have been configured to replicate the natural response of the ear canal. This means that sound is unchanged when it enters the earplug, allowing you to hear sounds exactly as they should be heard – naturally, with no alteration – but quieter.
Foam earplugs, on the other hand, are a poor choice for concerts and musicians, as they tend to muffle speech and sound, and reduce high-frequency sounds.
With the durability and usefulness that these earplugs provide, they can be used in more than just concert settings. The Hearing Protection Earplugs are useful in airports and airplanes, sports events, construction and renovation sites, parades, auto mechanic shops, and more.
