    High Fidelity Ear Plugs/filters

    I play the trumpet in several bands and when I get stuck in front of the percussion section (particularly snare drums), earplugs are a necessity. I own a half dozen types of plugs, and they all block the sound, but they also muffle and distort it. These plugs simply lower the volume with a minimum of the muffling effect, so they are perfect for musicians in loud groups. Very comfortable, quick & easy to insert or remove.

    They also seem perfect for concerts. For example, when Arturo Sandavol, the trumpet virtuoso, appeared locally, he used what must have been a 10,000 watt sound system. These ear plugs allow you to enjoy the music when a clueless sound engineer turns the volume three clicks past painful.

    Note: Etymotic Research ER20BP High Fidelity Ear Plugs and Hearos High Fidelity Ear Filters are virtually identical, other than color variations.

    Good for drummers, guitarists may run into issues, March 19, 2009

    Our band bought 5 sets of these for our practice space that can get quite loud.

    Previously I had been using a Vic Firth Isolation headset while the others used nothing.

    I can certainly hear more clearly than with the straight dB drop the headphones provide, can clearly hear the guitar and vocals without to much mudding of the sound.

    The guitarists don’t care for them though. They have a difficult time distinguishing the actual note they are playing. Our bass player uses them off and on dependent on the song and the level of accuracy he needs to hear.

    I would recommend trying them as they are relatively inexpensive compared to a custom tuned and fit application from an audiologist.

    If you are a drummer they will be more benefit to you than if you are guitar/keyboard/bass player from our joint experience.
