Earplugs and Monitors for Musicians
Musicians have unique needs when it comes to hearing protection. They need to protect their hearing, but they also need to be able to hear their own music clearly, as well as hear other musicians' music and voices while performing.
Conventional store-bought earplugs provide hearing protection. However, they don’t attenuate evenly. Foam or off the shelf earplugs usually reduce the higher frequency range more than the lower frequency range, resulting in a muffled and distorted sound. Unfortunately, this uneven attenuation can make it impossible to perform and the musician often forgoes hearing protection altogether.
Musicians need specialized protection. This means protection across all frequencies evenly.
Custom-made musician hearing protection devices fit deeply in the ear canal. This deep fit reduces what is known as the occlusion effect, a hollow or boomy sound when singing or speaking.
Musician's earplugs provide protection for:
- Musicians and music teachers
- Sound crews
- Recording engineers
- Athletic coaches
- NFL football players
- Medical professionals
- Construction workers
- Industrial workers
- Truck drivers
In-Ear Musician Monitors
In-ear musician monitors are the current standard in musician technology. They allow the musician to clearly hear the music they are performing while still protecting the musician's ears from extremely loud amplification systems and audiences.
In-ear monitors are custom made to fit your unique ear shape and come in many configurations.
