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 up to 5 minutes, is your body signalling that something is wrong and that you should probably protect your ears. Tinnitus develops through exposure to ongoing loud noise, which damages the tiny sensory hair cells in our inner ear. To continue enjoying music, you need to keep your ears safe with these best earplugs for concerts, clubbing and live music.
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!
One common misconception about earplugs for concerts is that they completely block out the sound around you, leaving it muffled and expressionless. Luckily for us, technology has come a long way. These days, a pair of quality high-fidelity earplugs will allow you to enjoy floor tickets to a rock metal concert or play Fortissimo on your violin, without reducing the quality of the sound you experience.
With these earplugs, users can enjoy music at rock concerts, clubs, or live music shows without experiencing muting, muffling, or distortion of higher frequencies while wearing the filters.
These are our favorite for a reason. The emphasis on precise material use and minimal design keeps the product light and comfortable for all-day wear.
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.
This company specializes in re-moldable earplugs and has been making custom earplugs for years.
Decibullz aims for “true, tuned, and flat attenuation that reduces loud noises evenly across all frequencies to safe levels.” These custom moulds are popular amongst music professionals and those who expect high sound accuracy.
Etymotic Research was the first company to ever look into noise-isolation high-fidelity in-ear earphones way back in 1991. Today, they remain one of the leading brands when it comes to noise isolation. These earplugs are perfect for moderately loud environments.
