Musicians ear plugs

 Why should you protect your hearing?

Wearing Musicians Ear Plugs while practising, performing and listening to music will protect your hearing from the effects of over exposure to loud sound throughout your life.

Any loud sounds can cause irreversible damage, so protecting your hearing, as well as the need for communication, is essential in any noisy environment.

Repeated exposure to loud noise can result in permanent hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears).

Why you should get custom earplugs

  • Each ear is unique so having a custom-made mould of each ear gives you the ultimate fit for ear comfort and noise isolation.
  • Many musicians say they hear their own instruments better, as well as the balance with instruments around them.
  • They also reduce sound levels evenly so that music and speech are clear and natural, not muffled as with other off-the-shelf earplugs.
  • Made in soft durable silicon they are produced in clear as standard.

There are a selection of colours to choose from and detachable neck cords (lanyards) are also available.

These impressions will then be used to develop plugs which are individually crafted to fit the precise size and shape of your ear. This ensures a very comfortable fit and most importantly, the appropriate level of protection.  The impressions are then stored in our laboratory for 4 years making any future ear protection you may require easy to order.

When did you last have your hearing tested?

Early intervention can help any hearing deterioration so why not have you hearing tested at the same time.

Custom Musicians ear plugs FAQ’s

How should they fit?

Earmoulds should fit snugly but comfortably.  It’s advisable to use a lubricant to ease insertion.

How do you keep them clean?

Filter buttons should be kept dry.  If dust or dirt accumulates remove it gently with a cloth or small soft brush.

Moulds should be removed from the filter, then wash the mould with water and mild soap.  Dry out naturally before reinserting filter.

You can use a cleaning swab to clean the moulds.  Audio-Wipes are useful if you experience itchy ears when wearing ear moulds.

How long will they last?

Musicians Earplugs are designed to last for many years but if you use them regularly it is advisable to have new moulds every 2-3 years.
