Musician’s Ear Plugs

Musicians Hearing Services Pro PouchWhy should you protect your hearing?

Wearing Musicians Ear Plugs while practising, performing and listening to music will protect your hearing from the effects of overexposure to loud sound throughout your life.

Any loud sounds can cause irreversible damageso protecting your hearing, as well as the need for communication, is essential in any noisy environment.

Repeated exposure to loud noise can result in permanent hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears).

One of our trained audiologists will take your unique ear impressions which is completely painless and can be done in a matter of minutes.

These impressions will then be used to develop plugs which are individually crafted to fit the precise size and shape of your ear. This ensures a very comfortable fit and most importantly, the appropriate level of protection.  The impressions are then stored as a scanned file for 4 years making any future ear protection you may require easy to order.

Why Custom-Made Ear Plugs?

Each ear is unique so having a custom-made mould of each ear gives you the ultimate fit for ear comfort and noise isolation.  Many musicians say they hear their own instruments better, as well as the balance with instruments around them.  Check out our “testimonials” to see what others think.

They also reduce sound levels evenly so that music and speech are clear and natural, not muffled as with other off-the-shelf earplugs.

A luxury fit, made in soft durable silicon they are produced in clear as standard. Each set comes with a carry case, wax cleaning pick and Otoferm cream.

Available in an array of colours.  Detachable neck cords are also available.

Why do we use ACS Filters?

These were developed specifically for musicians.  By incorporating a unique flat attenuating filter the custom moulded plug is tuned to provide a predefined reduction in ambient noise by 10, 15, 17, 20 or 25dB(A), whilst maintaining sound clarity for performance. This means you can hear your own instrument and the blend with others.

When did you last have your hearing tested?

Early intervention can help any hearing deterioration so why not have a hearing test at the same time.

How should they fit?

Earmoulds should fit snugly but comfortably.  It’s advisable to use a lubricant to ease insertion.

How do you keep them clean?

Filter buttons should be kept dry.  If dust or dirt accumulates remove it gently with a cloth or small soft brush.

Moulds should be removed from the filter, then wash the mould with water and mild soap.  Dry out naturally before reinserting filter.

You can use a cleaning swab to clean the moulds.  Audio-Wipes are useful if you experience itchy ears when wearing earmoulds.

How long will they last?

Musicians Earplugs are designed to last for many years but if you use them regularly it is advisable to have new moulds every 4 years.

What if there’s a group of you?

If you have a large number of people requiring custom mould fittings we can visit you on-site.

Do you need instant protection?

The ER20-s is a cost effective temporary solution.  A ready to use, one-size-fits-all earplug that closely replicates the ear’s natural frequency response. The earplugs reduce sound levels by 16dB while minimising high frequency roll-off providing high fidelity hearing protection.

ER20-s are provided with a carry case, neck cord and instructions.  Conventional foam and wax plugs generally produce 10 – 20 dB of extra high end reduction than in mid and low frequencies. This bias distorts the sound and disrupts the fidelity making voices and music sound unclear and unnatural.

What Makes Musicians Earplugs High Fidelity?

The buttons have a diaphragm which functions as an acoustic compliance, while the volume of air in the sound bore of the custom earmould acts as an acoustic mass.  The combination of the two produces a resonance at approximately 2700 Hz (as in the normal ear), which results in smooth, flat attenuation.
