Loudest Stadiums in the NFL

Loudest Stadiums in the NFL

From high school to NFL football stadiums, the better the experience, the higher the volume. The best time is a LOUD time! You'll definitely want to bring your EarPeace! That also isn’t an accident. Stadiums are designed in the same way old Roman stadiums were designed--loud means means excitement and energy, pumping up the fans as well as the players. Seattle Seahawks’ fans have a reputation for being so loud they earned the nickname “The Twelfth Man”. They even set a Guinness World Record for loudest crowd noise in December 2013 measuring in at 137.6 decibels. Not to be outdone, the crowd at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City broke the record to come in at 142.2 decibels.

All fun and games until you realize 142 decibels for any period of time at all, even a few seconds, can be enough to cause a small amount of permanent hearing damage. That's the volume on the tarmac at an airport. There is no safe exposure time to 142 decibels. Here is the scene around the NFL… this is a lot of ringing ears...

Stadiums are so loud that some hearing damage will occur during these moments of peak cheering. “Ears are extremely sensitive devices — they’re designed for when you’re walking in the woods and you hear a twig break, signaling that the bear that ate your friend last week is close,” said William Martin, a professor of otolaryngology at Oregon Health and Science University. Ears are not designed for the punishing roar of modern NFL stadiums. We aren't here to tell you to be quieter, only to make sure you protect your hearing! 

The great news is that you don’t have to compromise. No one likes to spend a fabulous social afternoon at their favorite game with comfortable foam ear plugs stuffed into their ears and shouting at their friends because they can’t hear them. EarPeace solves this problem. Our Patented PRO plugs evenly attenuate the volume, meaning they turn down all frequencies the same amount. Speech is clear and the roar is comfortable. Our contour design is patented comfort--meaning you'll forget you're even wearing them. Bonus, our earplugs are discreet and no one will notice! Last but not least, these noise cancelling ear plugs are hypoallergenic silicone and 100% reusable. Hook yourself up with more comfort and say no to ringing ears. Protect your hearing with EarPeace and GET LOUD!
