      Earplugs for music lovers

      Have you ever had ringing or buzzing in your ears after going to a gig, party or festival? If so, it’s a sign that you're at risk of permanent hearing loss and tinnitus caused by loud music. But there is a simple solution to keep your ears safe. Party on and protect your hearing with a pair of filter earplugs.

      If you love listening to live music, the chances are it could be damaging your hearing. Many party-goers and musicians experience tinnitus (ringing, buzzing or hissing in the ears or head) and some have permanently damaged their hearing.

      For too long, music lovers have been unwilling to compromise on music enjoyment to protect their ears from loud noise. The smart solution is to wear earplugs to parties, clubs and festivals to protect your hearing but which should you choose?

      Foam earplugs are widely available but they block the ears, which muffles and distorts the music. However, it is possible to listen to music safely and clearly with filter earplugs. The sound quality remains clear; the volume is simply attenuated to a lower, safer level.

      EarPeace reusable filter earplugs are a great way to protect your ears at concerts and live events. Here are some music-themed reasons to treat yourself to a pair: 



      Freedom…

      Unlike foam earplugs – which can be isolating – EarPeace earplugs have acoustic music filters. The sound isn’t muffled so it’s easy to forget you’re wearing them. Plus, you can chat more easily, as background noise is filtered out.

      Safe and sound…

      Any noise over 85 decibels (dB) – about as loud as someone shouting – can cause tinnitus and harm your ears. The music at an average festival or concert is about 100dB. EarPeace earplugs have a high-quality filter system that reduces the sound to a safe level. You can easily stay at a festival all day or go clubbing all night without having to worry about damaging your hearing.

      Invisible…

      EarPeace filter earplugs are barely visible in your ears thanks to their small size and shape. No one will even know you’re wearing hearing protection.

      All night long…

      Foam earplugs can quickly cause your ear canal to sweat and become itchy. EarPeace earplugs are made of soft, premium silicone. To prevent any irritation they’re hypoallergenic. They gently seal the ear with no hard edges. This results in a perfect fit, and means the earplugs stay in place all night long.

      Time after time…

      Foam earplugs can only be used once, whereas EarPeace earplugs are reusable. So, although they’re a bit higher priced, they’re cost effective.
