Best earplugs for concerts, clubbing, and live music 2024

Have you ever experienced the ringing in your ears after a night out? That’s called tinnitus. An annoying high-pitched sound, which can last anywhere from 5 minutes to a lifetime depending on exposure. To continue enjoying music, you need to keep your ears safe with these best earplugs for concerts, clubbing and live music in 2024!

In general, sounds above 85dB are harmful, and rock concerts can reach up to 120–129 dB. If you are listening to music at around 100dB, you should restrict your exposure to 15 mins maximum. Obviously, rock concerts and music performances can go on for hours – so in order to continue enjoying the music without damaging our ears, the best solution is to wear earplugs!

Our top picks for professional high-fidelity earplugs:

With these earplugs for concerts, clubbing and live music in 2024, users can enjoy music at rock concerts, clubs, or live music shows without experiencing muting, muffling, or distortion of higher frequencies and the best bit you won’t be damaging your ears.

1. Minuendo lossless earplugs (Our top pick)

These are our favourites for a reason. The emphasis on precise material use and minimal design keeps the product light and comfortable for all-day wear.

Minuendo - best earplugs for concert and clubbing

Minuendo uses membrane technology that mimics nature and behaves like a second eardrum. For earplugs with attenuation, the attenuation is normally fixed. Minuendo lossless earplugs’ uniqueness comes with its built-in attenuators, which allow you to easily switch the attenuation.

This technology is completely passive, which makes Minuendo earplugs very convenient and practical to use. The level of attenuation ranges from 7dB to 25dB, so you can easily switch between more or less sound depending on your situation. No other earplugs exist that have this stepless variability.


  • Adjustable attenuation from 7-25dB
  • Variable passive Hi-Fi filter
  • Sleek design for everyday wear
  • Comfortable for long durations of use
  • Includes 11 sets of ear tips for you to fit your perfect fit


  • Can be quite pricey (but definitely worth the investment)

Price: US$169 (now on discount, find out more)

2. Decibullz Custom Molded Professional High-Fidelity Earplugs (Good protection)

This company specializes in re-moldable earplugs and has been making custom earplugs for years.
