EAROS ONE

Safe in Sound

EAROS ONE Acoustic Filters will make sure to protect you from hearing damage without sacrificing the listening experience.

The company's patent-pending soundbore tech works like gangbusters delivering noise reduction between 17 and 25 decibels, keeping the ears protected, all while preserving the audio's full clarity so that you're able to experience your favorite bands live without missing one bit.

These high-fidelity soundbores make these plugs excellent for band practice and rock concerts alike.

Apart from that, these professional earplugs are incredibly comfortable. The plugs have been contoured to match the left and right ear canals' geometry, making the fit perfect. The silicone tips make them soft and snug.

The only downside here is that the people behind these earplugs for musicians have made such an emphasis on ergonomics that they've probably forgotten about aesthetics, designing these plugs so large that they're always noticeable.

On the bright side, the medical-grade silicone is durable and reusable, so the plugs will last and won't increase your environmental footprint.

In other words, EAROS ONE Acoustic Filters are effective, comfortable, and eco-friendly. These plugs will let you enjoy live music, making sure that you don't receive any hearing damage yet remain immersed in the frequencies' full spectrum. They're the best earplugs for musicians within this lineup.

Eargasm High Fidelity

Enjoy Concerts

Eargasm High Fidelity Earplugs will let you enjoy concerts and protect your hearing from the surprisingly harmful loud noises at these concerts (as well as other loud events).

Incorporating patent-pending attenuation filters, these plugs work wonders reducing noise evenly to maintain the full sound spectrum, all while making sure no damage to the hearing is done. Preserving the music's clarity and richness, these plugs basically give you the volume knob to the stage.

Apart from that, the plugs' hypo-allergic plush silicone shells are as non-toxic and comfortable as they come, allowing for prolonged wear. These things won’t cause any itching and/or pressure pains. You can wear them all day long at festivals without experiencing any discomfort.

The aluminum case comes equipped with an effective waterproof rubber seal that protects these plugs from moisture, dust, and debris. At the same time, the anti-stick interior pretty much guarantees that the earplugs will be easily removable.

Last but not least, the case features this carabiner hook that you can use to attach the case to backpacks, belts, etc.

Bottom line, Eargasm High Fidelity Earplugs are hands-down the best plugs for concerts we've looked at. There's pretty much nothing here that we would like to add. The plugs are practical, effective, and convenient. You should have no major issues with them.

Decibullz NRR 31

Use Them Anywhere

Decibullz NRR 31 are easily the most versatile earplugs on this list. Though the plugs don't excel in the attenuation department, they're able to block 31 decibels, as the "NRR 31" in the name suggests.

That excellent noise reduction rating makes these earplugs suitable for musicians (including singers), concert-goers, swimmers, shooters, construction workers, aircraft passengers, the list goes on and on. Of course, you can wear these things to bed too, though the plugs will be an overkill there.

What really sets these 'plugs apart though is the custom mold. Throw these earplugs into boiling water, let them cool down, then put them into the ears. After that, the plugs will mold to the ears' contours, securing that ever-so-desireable perfect fit.

Sure, sometimes you won't get that perfect fit the first time. Fortunately, as far as we're aware, these earplugs are the only 'plugs that are re-moldable, so you can repeat the procedure again and again.

As far as we're concerned, the product's only flaw (aside from poor attenuation) is that the tips can be somewhat tiresome to replace.

Other than that, Decibullz NRR 31 can be used basically anywhere by anyone. There are very few environments where these hearing protectors won't prove useful.

EarPeace HD

Hear the Lows, Mids, and Highs

EarPeace HD Concert Ear Plugs are awesome. First things first, these things are pretty much invisible, so you won't have to worry about aesthetics.

The plugs' improved attenuation filters work wonders protecting the ears from hearing damage and making sure they don't distort/block the music at the same time. You'll be able to hear the difference between lows, mids, and highs, all without worrying about your hearing.

At the same time, these things are comfortable too. The dual-flange design gently seals the ears with no hard edges, keeping the 'plugs discreet yet effective. The soft hypoallergenic material makes these earplugs snug yet reusable, securing high comfort levels without adding to pollution.

The aluminum cases are as great as the plugs. These milled cases are tough, rugged, durable, yet sleek and even somewhat elegant. Plus, they come with carabiners, so you can hook the cases to keyrings and things like that.

The cases are also pretty slim, which is great except that the earplugs and the tips can be difficult to fit inside these slim cases.

Besides that, you can always easily and effortlessly bring these EarPeace HD Concert Ear Plugs with you to concerts and band practice sessions. The plugs will be able to keep the volume high yet protect the ears from suffering any hearing damage.

Feeke Vibes

Unlikely to Miss Them

Feeke Vibes Earplugs are pretty cheap. They're alright as all-purpose plugs but you shouldn't be expecting any miracles here.

The plugs offer minimum attenuation, so you will be missing frequencies and the music might feel less spacious. At the same time, the plugs' 15-decibel noise reduction rating won't be blocking that much noise, so you won't have to worry too much about that.

Of course, because the NRR is relatively low, you wouldn't wanna bring these earplugs to shooting ranges. We're not holding that against the plugs though because the product's advertised as earplugs for concerts and airplanes, so you can't blame them for failing at something the earplugs weren't designed to do.

They're fairly comfy though. The medical-grade silicone is soft yet durable. The pull tabs will let you easily remove these plugs. The 'plugs are available in one size but that size is universal enough to fit most ears.

The aluminum storage case that comes supplied with these earplugs comes with a keyring and carabiner, so you can hook the case to keyrings, belts, bags, backpacks, and more.

All things considered, Feeke Vibes Earplugs do everything that budget 'plugs are supposed to do and then some. As far as the price-performance ratio is concerned, this is an awesome product. You're very unlikely to miss these earplugs too.

What Are Earplugs for Musicians?

Music is life. Music is the answer. Music is the universal language of mankind. We're not going to sing praises for music here because music does that better than we do. We will, however, remind you that music can be sometimes destructive too. To be more specific, the loud noises that musical instruments and musical gear pieces produce can cause tinnitus and hearing damage.

That's precisely why experienced musicians (including classical musicians) and concert-goers always carry earplugs with them.

There are basic earplugs though and then there are earplugs for musicians. These 'plugs incorporate attenuation filters that limit the noise yet make sure to preserve the music's full clarity.

Using these plugs, you'll be able to avoid hearing damage without compromising the listening experience. More often than not, these earplugs are constructed from medical-grade silicone, making them reusable, eco-friendly, comfortable, and long-lasting. Plus, they're usually supplied with storage cases that let you store and transport them with ease and convenience.

You can also look into these electric guitar strings and guitar picks to refresh your music equipment supplies.
