I'm a musician/producer, so I take hearing protection pretty seriously. I use a brand called Dubs. They're specifically made for being around live music, and are made to block out the overwhelming frequencies, but still allow you to hear the important ones. I absolutely swear by them. I think I bought my pair for $40, but it's worth it.
Edit: I was wrong, they're about $20!
Here's an Amazon link: [link]
They make ear plugs that are more like dampeners. In user them in my helmet while motorcycle riding.
Cuts down on harmful noise without you losing much sensory.
DUBS Noise Cancelling Music Ear Plugs: Acoustic Filters High Fidelity Hearing Protection [link]
I use these!
They work really well. I have even gotten a couple friends in my group buy them.
I've been using my set of Dubs for about a year now and can say I'm pretty happy with them. Ears definitely don't ring as much or at all post gig. Don't have any issues with mixing while wearing them, I just adjust either the booth monitor and headphones as needed. Only issue I've had is talking to someone in a loud room with them in. If someone comes out to me I tend to take one Dub out just to be able to communicate better. They are a good alternative if you don't (like me) have the money or want to spend on in ear monitors.
What about Dubs?
I want earplug that safely protect me from Shambhala sound but also want to retain quality/hear voices of people around me? Is Dubs good at both? If not what is a good alternative.
A few years ago Coachella sent a pair in each box. I am a film editor who works on very LOUD projects all day long and I wear them all day long to protect my ears. People always ask me about them at work and I say they are super cheap, protect your ears, and are totally comfortable. I am literally wearing them right now at work and I hardly notice them. Going to buy a 2nd pair for coachella Weekend 1 just in case I lose them dancing!
I'm sorry that it happens. There really are people that understand. If I can suggest something, look at these earplugs
I use them nearly every single day. They hook into the rim of your ear so you don't have to worry about them falling out. They block out harmful/sudden loud noises/crowd chatter and they help me with my misophonia if I can't use music. What's best is they don't filter out normal conversation level. So you don't need to go "What?" too often. They're small too, so they're not really noticeable. I also used to go around with big, noise canceling headphones until I got these guys! Even if they may not fully help the misophonia, they're good for lots of other sounds and disruptions.
All the best!
DUBS Acoustic Filters Advanced Tech Earplugs have been working for me. The only issue is that one of the plugs needs to be re-glued.
Takes away wind and exhaust noise but allow clear tremble-voice,music from my scala rider G9.
Edit: oh yeah i scored these for ~$16 during amazon prime day.
I know this wasn't really the question, but I use THESE earplugs during rehearsal. They really work to kind just turn the volume down and remove the pain of higher tones while still being able to hear all the music.
When I'm playing along to music, I use noise cancelling ear buds under any old pair of ear muffs.
When I'm jamming with other people, I've had good results with DUBS, they cut down just enough volume without really muffling anything. I wouldn't trust their decibel reduction for serious live gigs or anything like that (I would probably look for custom moulded in-ear monitors if I was going to play live), but they fit my casual needs.
I mentioned this in my post, but I've found Dubs to be better than the Earasers at half the price. Earasers are still good, but for half price I could get something more comfortable with similar quality.
Let's talk gear! I'm finally back on two wheels, and I plan on doing some long rides this summer. I would love some recommendations in a couple categories:
First, I am way overdue for a new helmet. My current lid is an old HJC that is heavy and lets in a ton of wind noise. I'm looking for something lighter, and most importantly, quiet. I saw that RevZilla posted their 2016 best helmets guide, but I couldn't find much information about noise levels for them.
Second, hearing protection. I have noticed over the past couple years I've started to develop a low level of tinnitus, and I want to keep that at bay as much as possible. I'm a little wary of wearing earplugs when I ride, as I want to be able to hear everything around me. My research turned up these DUBS acoustic filters that look promising. Anyone have any experience with them or input about other earpro?
Finally, I'd like to get a windscreen that offers a bit more wind protection. My bike is a stock 2007 Kawasaki Ninja 650. There are some various specific fit and universal screens out there, as well as clip on spoilers and extenders, but I don't know where to begin on finding a good one. I'm 5'9" so it doesn't have to be anything crazy big.
I think that DUBS Acoustic Filters are amazing. I use them every week and I havent had ANY problems with them. they filter the sound so that it still sounds good, while making it quieter too :)
$20 on Amazon. DUBS Acoustic Filters
I really like Dubs, though I've got Eargasm also. The filters let you still hear, just at a lower volume. Totally worth it.
[link] That's what I have, they're not available on Amazon for some reason and I got them for free so I don't know where you can pick them up..
For non-custom plugs, I like these: https://www.amazon.com/DUBS-Noise-Cancelling-Music-Plugs/dp/B00NW1IZ5Q
I wear custom filtered hearing plugs in both ears every day. Reducing lower-decibel noise gives my brain a huge rest by cutting out a bunch of sound to process. They've allowed me to better understand conversation in loud and regular environments. I don't do anything without them.
I have tinnitus as well, I’ve been using these for loud venues, though I stray away from concerts when possible
That's true, but honestly, wearing something like this ought to be enough and really shouldn't decrease your enjoyment of an event.
Hearing loss is something that I take seriously. I had my eardrums burst (not noise related) a while ago and it essentially cut me out of everything involving music for two months. The best way I can describe it is when your ears are plugged up on a plane and everything is muffled, they just never unclog. It was like listening to a song with the high and mid frequencies cut out and I didn't feel comfortable doing any work until they healed
That being said, a good pair of musician ear plugs are imperative. The ones you mentioned seem good, I and a lot of other Djs like DUBS, the frequency attenuation is focused on the midrange. It blocks out the most harmful sounds but still lets you hear someone talking next to you. Another option are the V-Moda Faders, I can personally vouch for the sound quality of these as well.
I usually wear one in one ear and have the other ear covered by my headphones. It lets me hear the monitors and my incoming track comfortably. Sometimes I leave with the ear without the earplug still ringing so if the monitors are too loud then I wear both with one headphone over the ear but I have to crank the volume on my headphones up quite a bit. It's all up to your personal comfort level, if you have any doubt hearing damage may occur don't gamble with it
I've been really happy with my DUBs
. I haven't tried the Earasers, but I preferred them to the Etymotics I've tried.
Invest in a pair of earplugs meant for live music. I use a pair of DUBS but a set of V-Modas works just as well.
NO ONE LIKES TINNITUS.
Don't just get earplugs, get the cool ones that designed for music. They are amazing
DUBS Acoustic Filters Advanced Tech Earplugs, White [link]
I use Dubs under my Amazon HL [link] For me this works the best.
I used to wear ear plugs at shows, but recently found these and have really loved them.
Would these be any good?
Completely forgot about earplugs. I prefer acoustic filters, so I can still hear people talking to me and the music, etc, so I use these and have never had an issue.
check out these DUBS for ~$25
I have two pairs of DUBS that work well for band practices. They definitely aren't one size fits all though.
Try out some concert or musician earplugs to see if they help during recovery. If you put them on an Amazon Wishlist, I'll cover the costs and have a pair overnighted to you.
Dubs or Downbeats seem to be a favored option.
Dubs are acoustic filters rather than earplugs so I'd rather get you the better option. Just put your favorite color on an Amazon Wishlist and pm me the link. I won't see your address or anything and if you are close to a major metro area, you might even get them tomorrow or Saturday.
Dubs Acoustic Filters
I like Dubs [link]
I bought a pair of these for work, little bit expensive for ear plugs, but it doesn't totally block everything out.
I have the Etymotics er20xs and find that they drown out a bit too much sound. Bass is still clear, but treble was drowned out, which kind of ruins a lot of the music for me.
I also have Dubs and find that they don't drown out too much sound (at the cost of less protection... I think 12dB) but they also fit more comfortably in my ear. Still no ringing at the end of the night so they did their job.
I used Dubs all last year and it really helped. Don't get the ringing in the ears post gig. Give em a try - [link]
