The Musician and the dental plugs are a filtering plug. You should still hear everything clearly, but receive the protection that is need to protect your hearing.

WHAT SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE
While we wish there were an easy chart for everyone to follow to find their perfect sized EARasers earplug, research has discovered that your individual ear canal size is not at all determined by height and weight, but rather age and gender and good ol’ DNA from your biological parents. Years of fitting individuals has given us a general guideline, however, and don’t forget there is the complimentary size swap out that’s available to you as well. Once you’re in the right size for your unique needs….you’ll be all set – and we are ‘hear’ to help you do just that!!
GENERAL GUIDELINES: (use your past experience as well to assist you. Remember we have 4 sizes…and a billion different ear canals in the world. You do the math!) First Time Users…Keep reading below about EARasers Starter Kit so you have two sets of tips to try on side by side for one set of filters. It makes “getting it right the first time” so much simpler.
X-SMALL – generally used by youth, such as Primary Schoolers, and some High Schoolers – Also a small % of the Adult population Male and Female. If you’ve always had a difficult time finding any earplug that would fit comfortably into your ear canal, then this may just be your perfect category for you. We always recommend you try the SMALL before attempting the X-SMALL since it is so tiny.
SMALL – typically the majority of Women and Younger Males (late 20’s and younger). Works well for some Adult Males with a smaller ear canal.
MEDIUM – typically these work well with Adult Males (late 20’s and up) who do well with the average earbud.
LARGE – enjoyed by a small % of the Adult population. Some Males over 60 and some Females as well. (Did you know Women, that being able to wear this size EARasers earplug is a sign of “Genius!?!” (Thank your biological parents.)
STILL WONDERING ABOUT THE RIGHT SIZE?
Time to think back to your personal past experience with earplugs and/or earbuds? Any indication you may have small or tiny canals? If so, we recommend you try the SMALL size. If standard ear-buds seem to work well for you, then perhaps you would do well with the MEDIUM.
‘HEAR’ is the same info…broken down by Gender rather than Size:
Women – generally speaking, Women do well with Smalls, (again, rely on your past experience)
Young Males (late 20’s and younger) – generally speaking, most younger Males do well with Smalls. Our ear canals grown our whole life. If you find that standard earbuds seem to work quite well then perhaps a Medium.
Adult Males (Late 20’s and up) – Generally this group is split about 50/50 between Small & Medium. This is where your own personal past experience comes in really handy. If you have any indication that you may have tiny canals, then start with a Small. If standard earbuds seem to work fine for you, then perhaps start with a Medium. We will always do our best to help you find your appropriate size.
Caring for your Earasers
Your Earasers can easily be cleaned following the steps below. Be certain to NEVER (say it with me…..NEVER) Stick or Poke anything down into the tip, or opening, of your earplug. Doing so WILL result in a popped, or unsecured, filter or coupler rendering your earplug “damaged” and thus voiding the warranty.
* To clean your Earasers, simply rinse off under warm water and let dry. Water will not harm the filter, however, try to refrain from using soaps as they may cling to your filter and could create a build up.
* “Alcohol-free” wipes are perfectly fine to use, alcohol wipes can dry out the silicone over time and compromise the integrity of your plugs.
* It is totally normal for ears to generate earwax. If wax, or debris, goes into the tip of your Earasers, it can gently be removed by simply using a “Soft Bristled Brush” such as a Soft Head Toothbrush, or a soft Baby Nail Brush. Using warm water and the soft bristle brush, gently work the wax and debris out. The soft bristles will gently remove the wax without having to insert anything down into the tip. Remember to NEVER stick or poke anything down inside the opening as it will damage your earplug.
