earplugs

I’m nearly out of my most excellent earplugs, so I decided to check with manufacturers overseas to get new ones made last week! After a lot of research, I picked some that step up a notch from the last lot in quality and ear filter.

‘Earplugs” is not the right word here – strictly speaking, they’re attenuators, meaning instead of just muffling the sound, they just turn the volume down, and you’ll still be able to enjoy the music.

As you can see I also found a bunch of graphics the manufacturer showed me that explain roughly how it works. Basically, these aren’t “knock-offs”, but exactly made by the same people who make bigger, more expensive brands and sell them for more, but because I don’t get custom packaging or a logo printed on them, they’re more affordable.

If you’re wondering for a comparison of identical models, check out these here (just under NZ$60), these (around $55), these (for $40) and these (over $90, sheesh!) – all the same earplug when it comes down to it, in different colours and packaging variations.

A few pictures for you below:

The attenuators were designed to protect human audition, especially working in high-noise environment. The key component- filter is designed to ensure regular communication while noise is reduced. 

  • Medical-grade hypoallergenic plush soft silicone
  • Eco-friendly because it’s reusable many times
  • Anti-earwax design
  • Dust-proof
  • Molds to the shape of any ear canal
  • Certified CE EN352-2
  • 21db filter which should take the edge of most loud concerts without losing the quality of the sound
  • Durable aluminium key chain container
  • Optional silicon cord – I prefer using it, so I don’t lose my earplugs in the dark.

This sort of earplug is constantly rated as one of the “top 10 earplugs for musicians” – you can google that and compare the pictures and specs, if you wish.

I’m pretty excited for these bad boys to arrive, which should be hopefully in mid-April. You’re very welcome to pre-order! Please note that pre-order only works for people within New Zealand, who don’t have an RD address – email me if you live rurally and would still like some, and I’ll sort you out otherwise!

Mine will cost $25 + $4 for postage – you can pre-order them below, or hit me up at gigs for them!
