Good Hearing Protection
I’ve used this product for a few years, and have reordered a couple of times. The plugs are the best I’ve had quality wise over the last decade, but they are easy to loose, at least for me. I use them in a machinery loud environment and they are effective and very comfortable. The little spikes that are purposed for pulling them out of your ears are a little difficult to grab sometimes. I highly recommend them for outdoor work around tractors and outdoor equipment along with shooting, and during load music concerts.
Pretty good- need more sizes
The overall quality is top notch. When seated properly, it cuts out the noise that it needs to- and works as advertised. Having 3 plugs in a kit is better than 2 since we all know that we will probably drop one. The carrying case is also well made. My only complaint is that it needs more sizes for a better fit- I have tried both the regular and smaller size but they still not sit well and have popped out a few times- and can be painful at times. There should be like 3 sizes given in each kit so that something will fit- from XS to Regular.
I have used theses for years and they are great.
FAQ Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between EarPeace and Foam Ear Plugs?
We develop “high fidelity” hearing protection. Each of our products include precision engineered acoustic filters that allow in a precise amount of unobstructed sound. You get all frequencies, just at a lower volume. EarPeace is great for any loud environment where you need to lower the decibel level and still hear clearly, enjoying live music or riding your motorcycle. Foam ear plugs, on the other hand, are not high fidelity. They do not have an acoustic filter in them. This means that they block the maximum amount of sound, but the compromise is that you lose most of the high frequencies. Foam ear plugs are great for industrial applications, shooting, working on the tarmac at an airport, etc. - all things that require the highest amount of protection possible because they are the loudest environments. But they are not particularly good for music or other activities where the dB level is lower and where you want to be able to hear in “high fidelity.” The other aspects that differentiate EarPeace from foam are noted on our site - they are much more comfortable, more discreet, and they come in a great carrying case. These are all major reasons why people in general won’t wear hearing protection, so we solved these issues when developing EarPeace.
What is the difference between Music, Moto & Safety?
All models have the same great filter set so you get the best audio quality out there. Each model includes 3 sets of filters (11, 14 & 19 db reduction) with distinct color plugs for different communities.
What are the various filters used for?
EarPeace Music, Moto & Safety original include 3 sets of filters. The medium and high filters are high fidelity, evenly lowering the sound pressure across frequencies. The max filter is a total block filter for when you need to really turn down the volume. Each filter set performs differently to fit your specific needs. Medium Protection (CLEAR) = SNR 17 / NRR 11. These filters are suitable for most loud events. Rehearsals, dance events, movies are all examples. High Protection (RED) = SNR 20 / NRR 14. These filters are perfect for your live concerts, festivals, decrease wind noise & engine noise when on your motorcycle OR DIY projects around the house. Max Protection (BLACK) = SNR 26 / NRR 19. These filters are a total block for when you really need to turn down the noise. Perfect for working the stage or sleeping.
How do I know which size to order- Standard or Small?
Ear canal sizes vary widely but our universal fit Standard size ear plugs fit ~80% of users. If you have comfortably used earplugs before or your music ear buds fit easily we recommend ordering our Standard size. Our Small size earplugs are 20% smaller and may fit you best if you have had experiences where ear plugs won’t stay in your ear, or, your music ear buds become uncomfortable over time. You may have also been told by an audiologist that you have smaller ear canals.
How do I clean my EarPeace?
EarPeace is easy to clean and maintain. Wipe the ear plugs off with a damp cloth (e.g. wash cloth) each time you wear them. Keep them stored in the aluminum case. If they become particularly dirty you can wash them in warm soapy water - however - remove the plastic attenuation filter before submerging the plug in water. Reinsert the filter only after the plug has dried thoroughly. The ear plugs should be replaced at any sign of wear and tear.
Can EarPeace be used for shooting?
EarPeace was designed for optimum performance in loud environments where you need passive protection - music events, motorsports, DIY projects, and even the movies. We include a MAX protection filter that is a solid block but EarPeace is not originally designed for impulse noise like shooting. Shooting requires fully blocking the ear canal and the best solution for that is over the ear muffs or if budget allows our Custom FIT EarPeace with Impulse Filters. The impulse filters available in our custom fits are the highest tech solution available for shooting enthusiasts. The filters contain an acoustic membrane that is engineered to snap stiff when exposed to impulse noise - like a gunshot. The membrane immediately relaxes and you are able to hear clearly again. You'll be able to communicate freely, be highly situationally aware and protected when you pull the trigger.
