Hearing protection for musicians

Both custom and non-custom products are available for musicians to help prevent hearing loss. Wearing the right ear protection not only helps combat hearing loss, but can also help to prevent  tinnitus.

Musician earplugs: These earplugs are made for musicians playing a variety of different types of instruments. They’re available in several types of materials, from foam to a softer plastic, and enable the musician to still hear the music being performed. These earplugs are also beneficial for concert-goers to protect their hearing while still enjoying the music. 

 

Electronic earplugs: These earplugs are electronic and can be programmed to adjust to different pitches and sounds depending on the loudness and environment the musician is in. These adaptive earplugs allow musicians to hear the sounds that are important, while filtering out damaging noise levels.

 

In-ear monitors: These high-tech devices are used by musicians or audio-engineer professionals and deliver sound to the ear while creating a barrier to background and damaging noise levels. In-ear monitors are available in custom or universal options.

Who can benefit from musician earplugs?

Musician earplugs and protection aren’t simply designed for individuals in a band, they can actually be beneficial to a number of different people, including: 

  • Students in the school band or orchestra

  • Music teachers or conductors

  • Concert or festival attendees

  • Nightclub workers or patrons

  • Entertainment industry staff
