Adjustable hearing protection with zero compromise on sound or comfort.
World’s only variable passive Hi-Fi filter
Natural flat frequency response
Patented adjustable membrane
Safe noise exposure up to 120dB
No electronics or batteries
Natural sound. No loss.
A flat frequency response translates to clear and natural sound. Minuendo is able to achieve a frequency response on par with custom and molded earplugs.
Patented membrane technology.
Micrometer precision craftsmanship leads to no frequency degradation like the muffled sound of existing foam earplugs.
By manually adjusting the lever, Minuendo can easily adjust your earplugs from open (-7dB) to closed (-25dB) and everything in between, so you can find your sweet spot.
Eartips that feel natural in your ear.
With eleven sets of eartips, including foam, silicone and flange you’ll find the perfect fit without compromising on the sound.
Unlike custom moulded earplugs Minuendo’s extensive range of eartips results in no leaks when you sing or move your jaw.
Magnetic locking system.
With Minuendo’s magnetic locking system you’ll never lose your earplugs again.
Easily lock them around your neck with the leash for easy access at anytime.
Foam ear tips
Silicone ear tips
Double flange ear tips

"A key benefit of Minuendo the membrane which can be seen as a "second eardrum" and is critical to achieving a flat frequency response. Custom molded musicians’ earplugs have fixed membrane filters, and this is one of the reasons these, like Minuendo, sound good."
"Part of Minuendo’s patented innovation lies in the unique ability to adjust and steplessly tension the membrane. This provides a large range of varying attenuation. The Minuendo earplug lever simultaneously controls a combination of slit thickness, volumes and membrane tensioning to achieve natural sound across the adjustable range. The intricate interaction between membrane structure, tensioning, meshes and varying acoustic canal is calculated by using the Finite Element Method and equivalent electrical circuit analysis of the acousto-mechanical system."
"During Minuendo's extensive research the need to finely adjust the attenuation of each ear became apparent. There were also musicians in the orchestras that had multiple sets of custom moulds with different attenuation that they used dynamically throughout pieces (although very impractical and expensive). The user research supported that there was a definite need for transparent and steplessly adjustable earplugs."
"Even musicians in amplified music genres that are used to IEM’s when performing concerts, have a need for better earplugs in practice settings and smaller gigs where in-ear monitors are impractical. And they probably attend concerts once in a while too?"
"It almost feels like your wearing nothing, since the sound is so natural. You can hear everything, just slighly quieter. In our user research, it became obvious that many were struggling to find earplugs that were open and transparent enough. The most open (least attenuating) filters for custom molded earplugs are rated at 9 dB attenuation, but when we measure them in our lab they are closer to 15dB. The difference to Minuendo earplugs in the same measurement setup (7dB) is significant. For reference, 10dB attenuation is perceived as half as loud."
"Minuendo coined and love the term lossless earplugs, since it refers to:
No, they are completely passive.
No, they are completely passive.
"Yes! The earplugs are quite petite, so will fit under for most people. This is useful when:
"A triple flanged silicone ear tip pressed far into the ear canal usually provides the tightest seal for most people. This gives the best frequency response. However, some may find that foam ear tips are more stable and comfortable, and therefore allow them to wear the earplugs for longer periods of time. The user may choose to accept a slightly less ideal seal for the sake of comfort, and this will typically increase the bass levels slightly through the earplugs."
"Ear tips can last for weeks, months or even years, depending on amount of use, cleaning and individual factors like earwax, sweat etc."

"Your warranty will have a ten-year validity period on the earplugs. All you have to do is ship the broken item back to us, and we'll replace it for you! Your warranty will cover manufacturing defects that affect the functionality of the earplugs. It does not cover accidental damage."
