Musicians and Hearing Loss Options

High-Fidelity Hearing Protection

We offer custom high-fidelity earplugs, the highest fidelity of any earplugs available. Musicians Earplugs are a custom product, made individually for each user. Musicians practice and perform in a variety of different settings. They are exposed to high levels of sound, sometimes for long periods and may require different amounts of protection depending on sound levels encountered during rehearsals and performance. Some musicians use one type of attenuator in one ear and one type in the other, depending on the source and location of the sound.


Benefits
  • Reduces sound levels evenly so that music and speech are clear and natural, not muffled as with other earplugs
  • Reduces risk of hearing damage for many noisy occupations and noisy venues, such as airshows, parades, athletic events and motor sports
  • Enhances the music experience for audiences while protecting hearing
  • Lets musicians hear their own instrument and their blend with others

Music Attenuators

Whether you prefer to play classic Bach or banging on a drum set, your ears are subjected to potential damage. Our filter and acoustically-tuned ear mold was developed for musicians. It attenuates (reduces) the sound equally across all frequencies by 15dB or 25dB. You hear your music accurately but at a safer level. They are clearly marked for your left and right ears. They are equipped with handles, making them easy to insert and remove. Cords can be installed to hang around your neck.

Custom Headphones

There are many different types of headphones out there. But there is nothing better than a custom set. A custom headphone is made just like earplugs, but with speakers in them. You can go jogging and never lose them and never have your ears fatigue from uncomfortable headphones. They don’t weigh as much as a normal headphone. You don’t lose any quality of the music because there is no room for your music to sneak out.

Musician Monitors

The concept of in-ear monitoring was brought to the forefront as a means to eliminate feedback from conventional stage monitors that are typically located in the front of the musicians in close proximity to their microphones on stage. By placing high-fidelity miniature speakers in custom earmolds, stage monitors could be eliminated, allowing the vocal microphones to be turned louder without the risk of feedback. As the technology improved, other benefits were recognized:

  • Improved sound quality
  • Consistent sound quality from venue to venue
  • Freedom of movement
  • Reduced cartage costs
  • Reduced vocal fatigue
  • MOST IMPORTANTLY, reduced risk of hearing loss when fit and used properly
