    Hearing Protection for Musicians

    Musicians' Earplugs are designed to replicate the natural response of the open ear. Sound heard with these earplugs has the same quality as the original, only quieter. The result is that speech and music are clear--you still hear the blend clearly, feel the bass, and distinguish each tone.

    How They Work 

    If you've ever worn foam or any other generic earplugs to a concert or on a gig, you know that they can affect sound quality and your listening enjoyment to a great extent.  This is due to the extensive high frequency attenuation typically provided by these plugs.  Custom fit Musicians Earplugs (TM) offer high fidelity custom hearing protection  Sound quality is clear and natural, not muffled and noise fatigue is reduced.  Designed by Etymotic Research, Musicians Earplugs are designed to replicate the natural response of the open ear. Sound heard with these earplugs has the same quality as the original, only quieter. The result is that speech and music are clear--you still hear the blend clearly, feel the bass, and distinguish each tone.

    Accurate sound reduction is achieved by combining a patented filter with the specific acoustics of a custom earmold. The combination of the two produces a resonance at approximately 2700 Hz (as in the normal ear) resulting in a smooth, flat attenuation. Three types of attenuator buttons are available: ER·9, ER·15 and ER·25. The number corresponds with the amount of sound reduction provided in decibels (dB) While designed for Musicians, Musicians Earplugs (TM) are great for other professionals who need good fidelity in addition to hearing protection (e.g. dentists, dental hygienists, etc)Musicians' Earplugs (TM) require earmold impressions which will be taken by a qualified Keystone Hearing Aid Centre professionals. Contact us today to make an appointment.
