Hearing Advice For Musicians

Enjoy the sound of great music for longer with the help of protective earplugs when performing or going to concerts and gigs. Wearing earplugs will ensure that you will return home with memories rather than ear pain. Amplified rock concerts can reach approximately 110-130 db, which can damage your hearing after 3.75-30 minutes of exposure per day, which can be more damaging for musicians who tend to go on tours. Kitting yourself out with some ear plugs suitable for musicians and music lovers, will help you protect from health concerns like tinnitus and hearing loss.

Earplugs for Musicians

Being a musician or working alongside a musician can be seen as a glamorous job, but it does have its downsides too. Working with instruments for long periods of time and on a regular basis can have an effect on your hearing as you can be exposed to high audio levels and peaks. Your ears can go into self-protect mode when sound levels are extremely high and the transmission from what you’re playing and what you are hearing can become muffled. There are a few health concerns when it comes to being exposed to harmful sound levels such as hearing loss, tinnitus and hyperacusis, these can be extremely difficult or impossible to treat. An essential item to wear on stage or in the studio is earplugs. They can reduce the level of sound, which could also improve your band’s performance and with flat level attenuating earplugs they will help protect your ears as well.
