Sometimes we get compliments without even knowing it. This arrived in our inbox courtesy of the Royal National Institute for the Deaf’s tinnitus forum:
Q. “Can any fellow sufferers recommend some ear protection/plugs which will protect me at concerts/gigs.
Don’t really know where to start.”
A. “You get what you pay for really. The best gig plugs run to about £120 and offer the best ear protection, but obviously are intended for professional use at that kind of price. Most plugs offer between 15-40 dB supression. The one’s I have used over the years came from http://www.snorestore.co.uk and set me back around £15… if I recall they offer around 22 dB noise reduction, which is usually enough for gigs and clubs. Have a look at the following link:
In my view, if you want cheap foam earplugs with high rated noise reduction, the above two companies are the best in the UK. They will both sell a trial sample over the phone if you wish.”
Well isn’t that nice! Thanks guys.
