p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Best Earplugs?


Just shot an Arab wedding this weekend, and the combination of extra loud music plus live drums have my ears ringing 2 days later. I've been to loud weddings before, but this one took the cake. I literally couldn't hear what anyone was saying to me through the 4 hour reception, but somehow made it through. What earplugs are everyone using here? I've heard some allow you to hear less loud sounds while still reducing the loudest ones.

Sadly, there's no vaccine for hearing loss.

I love DownBeats on my keychain — anytime sound gets close to 90dB, they go on.

I use the Vibes High Fidelity ear plugs. I shoot mainly marching band and indoor color guard and percussion and they work well.

So a few years ago this exact same situation happened to me, same type of wedding! I ordered some custom molded ones (had my molds from when I flew in the Army) specifically for this type of scenario. The company is Ear Inc., earinc.com and the model that I went with for weddings is called Acoustic Filtered Earplugs. What was nice about them was that I can actually hear quite well over loud music, so can carry on a normal conversation. I'll link the model below.

I've used these for years between weddings and going to the shooting range.

I do have the orange disposable ear plugs as backup but it's hard to hear people talk w/ those.

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! Will be picking one of those up before my next wedding. Took 4 days for my hearing to come back to normal, but now what was loud before is loud again (can tell by the volume level # on my car stereo). Definitely don't want to go through that again.

For loud concert venues, or when I want to shoot from a position near a speaker, I use 3M E-A-Rsoft Yellow Neon, Disposable, Foam, ear plugs (NRR 33), PLUS an old pair of 3M shooting muffs.

A nice feature of the muffs is that anyone who tries to speak to you can see that you will not be able to hear what they are saying.

I enjoyed a YouTube video the other day which was a ride-along with Sam Hurd on wedding day. During dance party he wears noise-cancelling Apple Pods and plays heavy metal at his chosen volume level.

I love the loop earplugs. Super comfortable and effective.
