Ok, so maybe not the most “techie” of subjects, but really earplus have really come a long way since the days of just using your thumbs or some wax.
There are many different styles of earplugs that are available to consumers looking to protect their ears in all kinds of environments. When looking for earplugs that are for use at music venues it is very important that this is their intended use. Not only will it affect sound quality, but if they do not have the right construction they likely won’t do much to protect your ears.
Some people prefer to go the inexpensive route and purchase earplugs that were created for people that work in loud environments like factories or around your kids blarring death metal music from an Samsung HW-K450 Soundbar. While these earplugs will almost certainly protect your hearing and won’t cost very much to purchase, you will not likely hear the music as it is intended. For some this is not of great importance, but what is the point of paying to see a concert live is you won’t get to enjoy it fully?
There are now earplugs that work to reduce the sound decibel to a safe level without reducing the quality of the sound. This is a great bonus because you also will still be able to hear those around you. When looking for these types of earplugs for concerts you will want to be sure that they guarantee to block out anything above 80 decibels. Anything above that level is where there is a risk of permanent damage to the eardrum and your hearing.
If you are looking to have the highest level of sound quality possible you should also look to be sure that it states HD quality in their product specifications. This means that even though it is reducing the level of vibration that will enter the ear, it still maintains the sound as it would be heard without the ear piece. Of course some companies may make this claim even though it isn’t true, that is where checking the reviews come in.
Any quality earplugs for concerts will have a rather high review rating. If they don’t that means that they do not provide the experience that they claim. It is best to read through the reviews before making a final decision so that you can be sure that you are getting exactly what you are expecting.
The best places to find independent concert earplug reviews are those that verify that the individual had actually purchased the item. This ensures that the information you are getting is actually from someone that has tested the product and have no vested interest in how consumers view it.
Sadly, many companies pay to have fake reviews put out there, so be sure to look for this information.
Concert earplugs are a great way to fully enjoy your concert going experience without putting yourself at risk of damaging your hearing. While it is more of a problem for those that attend loud concerts regularly, there is always a risk of damage that may not show up for a number of years. Do yourself a favor and find a quality ear piece to keep your hearing as strong as it can be.
