Hearing Aid

Custom Solid Noise Plugs

These solid noise plugs offer the most hearing protection in our range, providing a maximum of 28dB of attenuation. They are typically made of silicone material and offer far more comfort versus foam plugs.

They are available in a wide range of colours and we can add cords or clips to help keep them in place.

Price: $160 for a pair (or $80 each) 

Hearing Aid

Custom Sleep Plugs

These solid noise plugs are contoured to allow the user to lay on a pillow comfortably. They are typically made of silicone material and offer far more comfort versus foam plugs. They are also a good option for motorcyclists as the reduced size will fit more comfortably under a helmet.

They are available in a wide range of colours.

Price: $160 for a pair (or $80 each) 

Hearing Aid

Custom Swim Plugs

These solid swim plugs are designed to create a good seal in the ear to help reduce the chances of getting water into the ear canal. They are made of floating silicone material.

They are available in a wide range of colours.

Price: $160 for a pair (or $80 each) 

Acoustic Filtered Plugs

By using an acoustic filter, we are able to preserve much of the ability to hear speech , but still provide a fair bit of protection from high frequency sounds. Ideal for those individuals who work in moderate noise, but still need to be able to communicate. They are typically made of silicone material and offer increased comfort and better speech inteligibility versus foam plugs. 

They are available in a wide range of colours.

Price: $160 for a pair (or $80 each)

Custom ER Musicians Plugs

When sound quality is of the utmost importance, but you still want to protect your hearing, the custom ER musicians plugs are the best option. We work with the custom high-fidelity earplugs developed by ETYMOTIC over 25 years ago, following president Dr. Mead Killion’s participation in a noise study for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. They are still the highest fidelity of any earplugs available. Musicians Earplugs are a custom product, made individually for each user by first taking an impression of your ear canal. They are available in three different levels of sound attenuation. The ER•9 with the lowest attenuation at 9dB, the ER•15 which is the most commonly used with 15dB attenuation and the ER•25  with the most attenuation at 25 dB. 

Benefits

  • Reduces sound levels evenly so that music and speech are clear and natural, not muffled as with other earplugs
  • Reduces risk of hearing damage for many noisy occupations and noisy venues, such as airshows, parades, athletic events and motor sports
  • Enhances the music experience for audiences while protecting hearing
  • Lets musicians hear their own instrument and their blend with others

Musicians practice and perform in a variety of different settings. They are exposed to high levels of sound, sometimes for long periods and may require different amounts of protection depending on sound levels encountered during rehearsals and performance. Some musicians use one type of attenuator in one ear and one type in the other, depending on the source and location of the sound.

Price: $200 for a pair (or $100 each) 

Hearing Aid

Generic ETY Musicians Plugs

Offering exceptional sound at a much lower price, the generic ETY musicians plugs are a great option. Much like the custom ER versions, these continue to offer exceptional sound quality and do not have the dull and muffled sound typical of wearing ear plugs. They offer 20 dB of attenuation. They come in two sizes to fit most ears, however most people who use them a lot find they lack the comfort of the custom models. In the table above titled “which musicians earplug is right for you” they are listed as ETY20.

Sizes: Standard and Large
Price: $25 for a pair
