From The Who to the Ramones to Motorhead, extreme decibel levels have always been a defining characteristic in popular music. Of course, if you want to continue rocking out for many years to come, you need to shield your ear drums from excessive volume. With that in mind, you don't need to look any further than this catalog for an impressive selection of hearing protection options. These plugs are designed to be comfortable, long-lasting and many even come with Noise Reduction Ratings to prove their effectiveness.
It's amazing to think that at one point, companies only produced wax-cotton ear plugs. While those types of plugs are certainly better than nothing, today's music market is loaded with choices that are custom-made from a variety of materials to block out sound in extraordinary ways. For a set of ear plugs that are affordable yet come with a high rating, check out the Hearos High Fidelity-Series Long-Term Ear Plugs. Utilizing breakthrough technology to protect your hearing without muffling the sound, many musicians and music fans regard these plugs as the best currently available.
Or, if you're willing to spend a little more (like say, in the $25-$50 range), go with the Earasers Musicians Plugs. Boasting Smart Seal technology, featuring a soft silicone design and based on a widely used hearing aid tip, what you have here are the world's first flat frequency response earplugs. In the crowd or on the stage, you'll be amazed by what these ear plugs can do for your musical enjoyment.
Considering how much hearing protection has improved over the past two decades, there's simply no excuse for not owning a quality set of ear plugs if you regularly attend loud concerts or play music. In addition to the examples mentioned, you'll also come across simpler, classic-style plugs that come in packs of 28, so give yourself a little time here to explore each of your options thoroughly. Whether you're a DJ, a hard-hitting alt-rock drummer or a head-banging metal shredder, there's bound to be something to your liking in this section.
