OVERVIEW

A pair of earplugs for drummers designed to produce a high-fidelity experience while preserving your hearing.

These High-Fidelity Earplugs from Vic Firth were designed to replicate the natural response of the ear canal so that sound is reproduced exactly as the ear would hear it, only quieter. Clarity of speech and richness of music are preserved rather than muffled.

NRR is a value derived by mathematical formula that underestimates the effectiveness of flat attenuation earplugs. These earplugs have an NRR rating of 12 decibels. For musical applications, they are rated at ER20 so you can expect approximatley 20 dB of sound reduction across all frequencies in the real world. Heavy-duty neck cord and carrying case included.

These plugs did what they said. they definitely eliminated excess volume to protect your ears but preserved tone quality unlike regular earplugs. they fit well and true to size along with siting well in the ears. The carrying case is great for a key chain and protects and hold the plugs very well. I highly recommend them.

The only bad thing I can say is the neck strap was cheaper than i expected and the plugs were actually blue.

If your an adult get the large. Ordered a small too - just to be safe - and it really doesn't seem to fit tight in the ear canal to block the volume. The first large size I got seemed to have a factory defect - the end pin was not attached straight and made it difficult to insert but Musicians Friend sent a replacement immediately. As with any earplug it takes some time to get used to different sound quality difference but these work pretty well.

      Comments about Vic Firth VICEARPLUG High-Fidelity Hearing Protection:

      I'm a semi pro player. Been playing for years. That's why I use them, I want to be able to hear so I can keep playing for years. Hearing damage is a real concern of mine. I hate wearing any earplugs, just doesn't sound good to me. These sound better than others I've tried. At least with these, I can still hear all the parts being played by the rest of the band. If I were more disciplined, I'd wear them every time we play. I just use them for rehearsals now.

      Nobody wants hearing damage. If you play in a loud band, probably best to get some of these, or similar, and start using. Hearing damage is permanent.

          Comments about Vic Firth VICEARPLUG High-Fidelity Hearing Protection:

          They're good earplugs. I can't give them 5 stars because this is the only model of high fidelity earplugs that I've tried. I have no frame of reference for what makes a 5 star earplug.

          Although they're branded as a Vic Firth product, the fine print on the back of the package says "Etymotic Research" and "ER20". Which is the only other brand and model that I had tried. So I was a little bummed to get the same great earplugs again, if that makes any sense. Had wanted to try a few different kinds and see which ones I liked better.

            As a person with Tinnitus (Ringing of the Ears) which has provided Hearing loss, to allow loud audio to bombard my ears further make the ringing even worse. These ear plugs protected my ears for a GREAT BOSTON CONCERT, yet I was able to enjoy the music at a good audio level with good non-distorted frequency loss. I am a happy camper with this product.

                I am an occupational therapist, not a musician, and I purchased these to reduce background noise for a student with Autism who is very sensitive to the sounds of people talking in a room where he is working. I feel like this is a good alternative for him, because he does not always want to wear full headphones to block sound.

                          As a member of a world class indoor percussion drumline, I can say that these earplugs are the best that there is. They protect your ears from very bad damage while still managing to let in all of the necessary sounds in order for you to play your best and listen in to your surroundings.

                                      I've tried several different brands of hearing protection, and these are so far the best at providing protection without loss of "feel". I have been a vocalist in a LOUD rock band for over 30 years. I have tinnitus, and although I still like to feel it in my chest, my ears can no longer take the decibels. I can still hear all the instruments, but really calms the piercing sounds like cymbals and power cords. Takes some getting used to over hearing your own voice, but not as bad as others I have tried. Only negative is the stems that stick out of your ears, which is why I use Westones for live gigs in small rooms.

                                      I bought these to improve on the orange set I was using. The sound quality is very clear, however they must be placed pretty deep to be effective. After using them for a week, my left ear started to hurt when I put them in.

                                      These are so comfortable and the sound is clear enough that you forget you're wearing them until the end of the day, thinking of having them permanently implanted

                                        I only use these for practice, but they have been especially helpful. With the practice space being smaller sound levels are much higher and these protectors reduce the level quite well. You can still hear people talking and instruments come through adequately.

                                            These are size large and are a little too big for my ears.
                                            They come with a nice lanyard and a convenient little case.
