Earplugs for Musicians

As a musician, DJ, sound technician, or party goer, you inevitably find yourself surrounded by loud music. Loud noise means that you run a high risk of sustaining hearing damage and that’s why you must protect your ears with earmuffs or earplugs.

You want to look for a pair of earplugs that has a flat frequency response, which means they attenuate all of the frequencies equally. You want your earplugs to turn down the volume but not the quality of the sound.

Foam Earplugs VS Reusable Filtered Earplugs

While foam earplugs are better than having no protection at all, they generally produce a muffled sound and reduce higher frequencies which results in poor sound quality.

However, earplugs specially made for musicians reduce all frequencies equally which maintains the musical soundscape for the wearer but at a safer volume.

Top 5 Earplugs for Musicians to Preserve Sound Quality

  1. Earasers Hi-Fi Earplugs for Musicians

Talk about discreet! Earasers are an almost invisible earplug and feel so light and comfortable you’ll hardly know you’re wearing them.

the filters ensure a flat frequency response similar to using studio monitors. The benefit of this is that every frequency you’re supposed to hear is accurately represented through the earbuds, yet overall noise volume is also reduced accordingly.

Cleverly created with an open design to allow sound to move closer to the eardrum, before being attenuated and filtered, resulting in a much clearer sound. This model is patented and unique to Earasers.

The placement of the filter enables a more precise sound and removes harsh frequencies giving you about 19 decibels of harmful noise reduction.

One of the biggest things that many musicians love about the Earasers is that they fit easily and comfortably under a set of headphones so that you don’t need to remove them when you are in the mix.
