The ACS ER20 earplugs are re-useable hearing protectors that protect the ear against excessive ambient noise. Due to the special filter, the fidelity of the original sound remains and speech intelligility is hardly affected. In the workplace when sounds reach a level of 85 dB(A), it's the law for employers to provide hearing protection.
Outside of work, it's down to you.
The Pacato is one of the most discreet universal-fit plugs available with a flush fitting filter that enables the plug to sit comfortably in the ear with no protrusion making them ideal for use under headwear or in any situation where discretion for the wearer is desired.
Offering an average of 19dB protection the Pacato is suitable for use in most amplified music or other loud noise environments keeping your hearing safe from damaging exposure to excessive noise but ensuring that you stay involved in the performance. Using Pacato earplugs you can enjoy your music at a level that suits you without losing the fidelity of the sound as you might with foam earplugs, in addition, the Pacato keeps all the atmosphere allowing you to hear what's going on around you and communicate clearly with others so you don't have to feel isolated from the music, the atmosphere or the people to keep your hearing safe from harm.
Trying to create a natural sounding earplug is no mean feat as far as your own voice is concerned because, as you will have experienced, when you block off your ear canal your own voice starts to boom inside your head, this is what we call occlusion. Occlusion is caused by sound that is carried to your ear canal through the cartilage at the side of your head and usually escapes through the open ear canal so is not heard. When we block off the canal this sound cannot escape and so creates that booming effect.
A large amount of occlusion can be eliminated by ensuring that the earplug sits deep enough into the ear canal to extend past the cartilage so that the sound hits the plug and is deadened rather than entering the canal at all but the Pacato filters go one step further. The Pacato is vented to allow sound to pass both ways which means that remaining sound can escape directly through the filter providing one of the most natural sounding earplugs available.
The Pacato also offers resilience to moisture and wax build up. Being sheilded from external moisture with the hard outer shell means that the fabric filter membrane is protected from the elements so your earplug will keep on performing in adverse conditions but, in addition, the filters and plugs can be cleaned to keep them performing for years to come.
The Pataco plugs from ACS offer a perfect cost-effective solution to protect your hearing in a variety of environments whilst making sure that you get one of the most natural sounding earplugs available.
Carry case included.
MusicSafe Pro is the only hearing protection for musicians with three exchangeable filter sets for low, medium and high protection. These unique AlpineAcousticFilters with selective absorption guarantee optimal protection against harmful noise levels, while preserving excellent music quality. Depending on the instrument you are playing, your position on the stage or the kind of music you are playing, you can always choose the protection that suits you most.

The safe and statutory limit to which the hearing may be exposed is 80 decibel. Regular noise above 80 decibels will irrevocably lead to hearing damage. Official reports show that the limit of 80 dB is soon exceeded. For instance, at concerts, noise levels up to 120 dB can be measures. For rock musicians, the harmful noises are mainly produced by the drums and the amplifiers, whereas for classical musicians, their own instruments and those of others greatly affect their hearing. The following values shows how soon the maximum exposing time is reached:
Noise level Maximum exposure without hearing protection
86 dB 2 hours
89 dB 1 hour
92 dB 30 minutes
94 dB 15 minutes
98 dB 7 minutes
102 dB 3 minutes
106 dB 90 seconds
Depending on your situation, the instrument you're playing and where you are playing it, you can choose your own absorption. For instance, as a drummer, you'll require higher absorption levels than when you're a singer.

Musicians, DJs, clubbers, concert goers really do not want just to use any earplug, they demand the best and that's where ProGuard come in. ProGuard have engineered the ProGuard Music Custom earplugs to cater for their listening needs. Each earplug is tailored to the individual client, it will fit like a glove into every nook and cranny of your complex ear anatomy. The custom-fit earplug will fit deep into the ear canal and sit comfortably there for long periods of time, without it becoming uncomfortable or feeling obtrusive. They were manufactured from clear tactile soft medical grade silicon, so they will require very little maintenance over their lifetime, just the occasional wash in warm soapy water and a quick dry before inserting them into the ear is all that is required.
Each ProGuard Music Custom earplug with new design comes fitted with its own replaceable 17 dB (mid) acoustic filter as standard. The filter is the clever and new part, a completely new design and constructed using intricate membrane technology. The filter is engineered to give you the best acoustic response available, every membrane filter is finely tuned and tested to allow a certain amount of sound to pass through un-cluttered. Enabling you to hear music as it should be played only at a lower level, with its original sound clarity intact. All ProGuard filters are individually tested and meet the strict criteria of EN352-2, they are easily user interchangeable.
Designed for swimmers, surfers, water polo player, sailors or anyone spending time in water; PoolPlugz are reusable, universal fit ear canal protector designed specifically to protect the ear canal and inner ear from infection prolonged contact with water.
PoolPlugz help prevent water from entering the ear, reducing the possibility of infection, swimmers ear (Otitis externa) and surfer's ear, causes of pain for children and adults alike.

Specifically designed for musicians, DJ's, sound engineers, concert-goers and music enthusiasts, the Lin-Ear PR20 will enable the user to listen to loud music in perfect clarity, yet maintain the live atmosphere without risking hearing damage. The PR20's advanced membrane technology acoustic filter will provide natural undistorted sound with minimal occlusion effect, that's often associated with earplugs. The vented design of the Lin-Ear allows the trapped sound to escape through the acoustic filter as if your ear was open, leaving you with the most natural sound available.
(An occlusion is caused by sound carried to your ears through bone or cartilage conduction, normally this is unheard and escapes through the open ear but if your ear is blocked by an earplug the sound becomes trapped and a booming low frequency effect will occur causing an uncomfortable sensation.)
The filter also allows air to circulate within the ear canal for all day comfort, having undergone full environmental testing in extreme conditions. A detachable elasticated lanyard cord is also included. The filter can be simply removed and replaced to enable the eartips to be cleaned in warm soapy water for hygiene purposes. The ShooterPlugz filters can be fitted to custom moulds for extra added comfort if required.
ProGuard SleepPlugz will reduce the sound level by a CE certified 24dB, eliminating or reducing sound to a non intrusive level and not totally block it. Allowing you to still hear your morning alarm call or any audible warnings but will be enough to enable you to get a decent night sleep. For example some snoring can be as loud as 90dB that's probably the same as a car horn, the SleepPlugz will reduce this down to around 65dB a much more tolerable level. Most moderate snorers are about 70-75dB, the reduction is down to 50dB, so sleep is much easier.
SleepPlugz' elegant design also offers an open air passage to the ear, minimising the occlusion effect*, whilst keeping the ear ventilated and cool for optimum comfort during the night.
Supplied with two sizes of soft, pliable eartips to suit most ears, they will slip easily into your ear without any discomfort. Just remember it may sound unnaturally quiet for the first night. After that you'll wonder why you didn't use them earlier.
*Occlusion effect occurs when using some earplugs, typically low frequencies of your own voice can be transmitted through bone conduction.
