Interesting Fact: Did you know that concerts can often exceed 115 decibels (dB)? This can do permanent damage do your ears in less than 30 seconds!
Musicians Ear Plugs
Custom molded ear plug with a specially designed filter that reduces all frequencies (i.e. pitches) by an equal decibel amount (9, 15, or 25 dB). A typical ear plug will reduce high frequencies much more than low frequencies, resulting in a “muffled” sound - this is unacceptable for enjoying music. Since musicians ear plugs reduce all frequencies the same, the original music soundscape is preserved – but at a safer volume.
- Ideal for individuals who play music and/or attend a lot of live music.
- Filters are interchangeable (so you can purchase various filters for different applications)
- Available in a soft silicone or a more rigid material that softens with body heat
- Available in a range of colors
Musicians ear plugs are NOT just for musicians, they are ideal for any situation where we only need to block out certain sounds. They can be ideal for:
- Band Teachers
- Concert Goers
- Medical Professionals
- Industrial Workers
- Working around the house
- and more!
Custom In-Ear Monitors/headphones
The ultimate earphone experience for musicians and music lovers. In-ear monitors (IEMs) are traditionally marketed for musicians performing on stage to “monitor” the music they are making, while also ensuring a safe listening level. However, these are also ideal for personal music listening– we encourage it! How often have you found the generic earphones that come with your device don’t fit or are uncomfortable?
IEMs are earphones (i.e. drivers) that are manufactured inside a custom molded shell, providing you with the epitome of comfort, clarity, and awesomeness. Since they are molded to your ear they also act as an ear plug, blocking out environmental noise – this makes you naturally turn the volume down to a safer level. IEMs are ideal for:
- Active individuals as the custom shell provides maximum retention and comfort
- *Individuals who want to listen to music but also protect their hearing
- Musicians for stage and/or studio use
- Sound engineers
