Vibes Announces Affordable, Reusable, Hi-Fidelity Earplugs

Hearing damage is an unavoidable part of being a musician. From practicing, to playing gigs, to attending shows, experiencing an ear-ringing sensation (which is actually a sign of irreversible hearing damage) is something that's all too familiar for most musicians.

Understandably, a huge percentage of musicians don't wear hearing protection because the two standard options for hearing protection inhibit musicians' abilities to hear themselves play, and are prohibitively expensive, respectively. Foam earplugs, while inexpensive, muffle the sound of music to the point where it can't be heard, and custom-molded musician's earplugs require a visit to a doctor for fitting and can cost several hundred dollars.
