      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Pacato Hearing Protection:

      I suffer from tinnitus as a result of meniere's disease. Playing live heavy metal music doesn't help. Over the years, I've used a number of different techniques to protect my hearing - from cotton balls soaked in baby oil to conventional ear plugs. Upon the recommendation of a friend, I tried Planet Waves Pacatos. Far and away the best, these don't attenuate highs nor do they accentuate bass to an uncomfortable degree. They just work! I've used the same pair for months now - easy to use and easy to maintain, but I just felt compelled to buy several more pairs because I don't want to take the chance of being without them. They are good, they work and they are affordable. You won't be disappointed.

      Looks and feels like a quality product. Thorough instructions on how to insert into ears. Just too large and did not stay in my ears.

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Pacato Hearing Protection:

      Honestly I have no idea what anyone is talking about when they give these less than 5 stars. They have a specially designed tab for removal, and it is quite easy to get them out of your ears. They can be put in in an instant; you don't have to wait for them to expand like foam earplugs. The clarity of the sound is superior. These things are just the best.

          After putting them in I couldn't hear the guitars clearly, so I went to remove them and I couldn't get it out! The singer next to me had to use a screw driver and a whole song to remove it.Whew!

            I've never been an ear plug user. But I will always use them for any future gig I that my ear bud monitors can't be used. A handy pouch that easily connects to my amp's handle for storage and locating them for every performance. I'm a guitarist who performs in a theater a average of 12 shows weekly.

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Pacato Hearing Protection:

              After graduating to the tube amp class and playing bigger gigs, I noticed my ears ringing after practices and a pounding headache from the noise. These things work great! Don't worry about it sounding bassy and muffled, it keeps every bit of your sound and everyone else's but at a level you can easily tolerate. After the first time, I noticed I was able to practice longer and feel comfortable afterwards. I also work in a wood working shop and anyone who has been around a planer know's it's like 10,000 icepicks on a chalkboard. I wear these ear buds daily and again, work is comfortable and enjoyable again. So whether it's on stage with your guitar or making one of your own in a shop, these ear buds really make a day of work even more enjoyable.
