First off, this is something you wear on your body, so like anything of that nature, it may not fit everybody. I'm a normal sized adult man, and these DUBS fit me very easily and work very well.

I am a bassist and recently joined a great band. The biggest problem, though, is that our stage volume is way higher than I've ever experienced. We have an older drummer, and in addition to banging super hard on the drums, his stage monitors (which are also aimed in my direction) are unbelievably loud. I tried these DUBS, and they work amazingly well. They cut the overall sound volume significantly, but I can still hear everybody well. In fact, I think they help me with better precision on my bass notes, because I am hearing a more defined bass note, with less overtones, etc. These are similar to Hearos and foam earplugs, except they do allow you to hear more details. I can carry on a conversation between sets with these still in, for example. I don't think they would work well for vocalists, although I haven't tried that yet, I just play bass - but I think you'd need in-ear monitors for vocal use. Just a guess on the vocalist use, though.

These are not as comfortable as going without ear protection, but I can wear them for a full 4 hour show and it's nice afterwards taking them out and not having any ringing ears. I would consider these a nicer version of earplugs that give better sound definition on stage. I would certainly recommend for fellow musicians in loud bands that don't have to sing.

These are the best earplugs I have used so far, and I've been on a quest to find the best ones for awhile now. They're very comfortable to wear and blocked enough sound for me to practice in a small concrete and tile room with my school's drumline (two tenors, three snares, four basses) without any issues. The fidelity is far from perfect, but it's more than clear enough for the money.

The only issue I have with these earplugs is that of the two pairs I've had, BOTH of the rubber pieces that actually go in your ear have fallen off of BOTH pairs. In my second pair, one wasn't even glued on when they got here. It's like the guys who made them forgot to add glue to R&D. Sure, you can super glue the tips back on pretty easily, but I shouldn't have to, and it can be a mess if the edge gets caught on the glue. If Doppler starts actually gluing the rubber bits onto the earplugs, these will definitely be a 5 star product. But for now, it's a 2 because I feel like I got sent two DIY ear bud kits.

That being said, I'm probably going to order these again if I lose them because they fit my ear so well compared to other earplugs. My ear canal is pretty huge and these fit just enough, so if your ear canal is large to average you should be fine.

      Does a better job than my Singers (big bux) custom made earplugs. Great for rehearsal in the studio. Wish I had a pair 30 years ago, I wouldn't have the hearing difficulties that I live with now.

        Comments about Doppler Labs DUBS Acoustic Filters Advanced Tech Earplugs:

        Our band practices can easily exceed 90 decibels, and I value my hearing so I purchased these earplugs. I haven't tried any other brands, but these seem to reduce the volume without making the sound muddy or unclear. I play bass and was worried that I wouldn't be able to hear myself in the mix, but that isn't an issue with these.

            I had these recommended to me by some pro musicians I jammed with. I ordered my pair and when I got them one of them was in two pieces. I called my friends that use them and they said that mine must have been broken, as theirs didn't ever come apart. However, I used them anyway, and the level of noise suppression they provided was really, really good. So instead of returning them I decided I would just keep them and glue the broken one back together. I gave them 4 stars because even broken, they work very well.

            Not as good as advertised, they do cut on some of the harmful frequencies but the claim of 12 dB reduction is not true. Still too loud!! Just a little clearer and you can hear people talking to you as opposed to regular ear plgs

            Comments about Doppler Labs DUBS Acoustic Filters Advanced Tech Earplugs:

            My son bought me these to protect my hearing. After a performance my ears might ring for hours, sometimes a full day afterwards. These work wonders, except when they are in your voice is "head voice". That's not an accurate representation of your harmonizing voice. Also "head voice" can be louder than the amount of lead vocals that are let in, again making harmonizing difficult or impossible.

            But if you're a non-vocalizing musician that is anywhere near cymbals, pa mains, or guitar amps, these are the best product on the market. They let in more quality sound than foam earplugs, and you can leave them in between sets and still hold a conversation.
