Product Description

Hearing loss from exposure to loud sound affects millions of people. Noise-induced hearing loss is preventable. And it's easy to prevent. ETY-Plugs were developed to provide low cost, one-size-fits-most high fidelity earplugs that can be used in a variety of noisy environments. The goal of the ETY-Plugs design was the same as Etymotic's famous Musicans Earplugs: to reduce noise but preserve sound quality; in effect, to turn down the noise but not muffle voices, environmental sounds or music. These high-fidelity earplugs are effective or anyone who needs to hear accurately in noise: Attendees at concerts, clubs, other loud performance venues; Aircraft personnel; Construction workers; Industrial workers; Medical/Dental workers; workers in environments with loud music such as concert halls, nightclubs or bars; Emergency vehicle personnel; Athletes; Participants in Motor Sports; Truck Drivers. Each purchase includes high fidelity earplugs, black cord, carrying case and instructions. Easy to carry in your purse, backpack or pocket. Available in Standard Size or Large Size.

common risk factors

With deep roots in acoustic research and the hearing aid industry, Etymotic Research invented insert earphones in 1984. Innovation, education and hearing conservation are central to Etymotic’s mission, with products that accurately assess hearing, improve the lives of those with hearing loss, and enhance the listening experience of musicians and music lovers everywhere. Etymotic’s products are used by scientists, hearing practitioners, hearing-impaired consumers, professional and amateur musicians, and others who insist on superior sound quality.

The Etymotic ER-20 Ety-Plugs
Protect Your Hearing Without Loss of Clarity

ETY-Plugs are the world's highest fidelity non-custom earplugs. They reduce most noise to safe levels while preserving the clarity of speech and the richness of music. ETY-Plugs are configured to replicate the natural response of the ear canal so that when sound enters the earplug, it is reproduced unchanged, exactly the same as the ear would hear it, only quieter.

ETY-Plugs use a tuned resonator and acoustic resistor to replicate the natural response of the ear canal. This unique construction, combined with Etymotic's proprietary sound path, reduces sound levels evenly across the frequency range without changing the sound quality. Result: Music and speech remain clear, but quieter and safer. Foam earplugs reduce the high frequencies, resulting in muffled speech and music, but ETY-Plugs provide almost equal sound reduction (20 dB) across the range of hearing.

Natual and Clear Sound for Noisy Environments

ETY-Plugs reduce sound levels evenly so that music and speech are clear and natural, not muffled as with other earplugs. So you can reduce your risk of hearing damage for many noisy occupations as well as noisy venues--such as airshows, parades, athletic events and motor sports. When you're at a concert, ETY-Plugs protect your hearing without letting you miss out on any of the action. They're also ideal for musicians, letting them hear their own instrument and how they blend with others accurately and without distraction.

Available in Two Sizes

ETY-Plugs are available in 2 sizes (standard and large), each yielding the same sound reduction of approximately 20 dB at all frequencies. While all ears are different in size and shape, the two sizes of ETY-Plugs fit almost 100% of ear canals. Recent studies of both fit and seal, conducted at Etymotic Research and an independent lab, showed that the smaller of the two sizes fits the majority of ears and is recommended as a standard fit.

Regular use of these high-fidelity earplugs while practicing, performing and listening to music will protect hearing from the cumulative effects of overexposure to loud sound throughout life.

The ER20 plugs do work well. I'm a fulltime musician and love them. BUT, the last pair I got turned out to be the "Baby Blues" which are made "for small ear canals". The descriptions here are very weak and it's easy to make that mistake. The actual sound filter is inside the stem, but the silicone plug (the blue part on these plugs) is smaller than normal, too small for my adult male ears. I'm not sure the seller understands this. Be careful.

I'm a sound engineer and have been looking for a good pair of plugs for concerts. I spend most of my time in the studio, not at concerts, because I don't want to damage my hearing.

Let me start with this: No earplug can replicate the ears response while impeding sound. Just ain't gonna happen. At least not for any affordable price. But these aren't bad. I had formerly been using a pair of Combat Arms ear plugs - Peltor 97079 Combat Arms Earplugs - but they cut out too much of the high end. As someone who has very detailed hearing (over 20db better than average all the way up the scale) this lack of high end bothered me. So I got these.

PROS:
- While not perfect, these are very effective. They have a natural response in much of the range of the human voice, meaning that when you're listening to your favorite song, you'll clearly hear the lyrics. That's a huge plus. Instruments might sound dull or different, but the vocals are usually what people focus on.
- If nothing else, the slightly dimmed highs make the bass sound very big.
- Come close to halving the sound coming in, judging by my headphone and stereo tests. The TV show I had on sounded almost the same.
- Comes with a nice case. The carry case is big enough for the two plugs and the included neck cord. Seems sturdy, and has a good seal to make sure you don't lose a plug. Like one of the picture notes says, squeeze the sides and it opens easily.

CONS:
- Not quite as natural as advertised, but I doubt you could fault them for that. Many people might not even notice a difference in in the sound spectrum
- Arrived slightly misshapen.

Bought these for a photo shoot at a concert. Was right up front near the monitors and was able to shoot without any discomfort and left them in for the entire 2 hours. Was able to hear everything and the frequency response was perfect. It was just like turning the volume down on the stereo - just made the sound lower without muffling it like regular foam plugs do. Was also able to carry on a conversation with them in as well. And the best part - no ear ringing for days after the concert either.

We use these at school for my son. He's in first grade and has sensory processing disorder, which makes it very difficult for him to tune out noises and focus in the classroom. These earplugs diffuse just enough noise to allow him to attend to his work and to the teacher. He also uses them during assemblies and in the cafeteria where it's very noisy. They're much more discrete than the headphones often used to help children in classroom settings.

I have a brain injury and as a result am extremely sensitive to light and sound. I have a pair of regular sized and baby blue size ear buds. I LOVE THEM. I wear them anytime I leave my house (and anytime it's a bit noisy in my house) I can hold conversations in loud restaurants and groups and I don't get headaches or tired as quickly. I even wore them to Vegas and I can't tell you the difference these little babies made for me. My ears were a bit sore after the second or third day of wearing them for days on end, but other than that I am extatic with my purchse and would recommend them to anyone!

I'm a working adult who struggles with ADD. I've been experimenting with ear plugs at work, at home studying and at the library to block out subtle envinronmental noise and I don't think it's too much of an exaggeration to say that my quality of life has *dramatically* improved since making this small change.

THESE guys though... They're reusable, washable and the.. little.. outside stem part is totally clear, which means they're not immediately noticeable by too many coworkers.. (I added a picture of my ear. :)) AND they only block out 12 decibels, which means I can work with them all day, take phone calls, (sometimes I have to turn the phone volume up, but not always) and have regular conversations.. and they're pretty comfortable..

NOTE: The "large" size is the standard for adults. When this was owned by Earlove, the now "regular" blue earplugs were marketed as the "small child-sized," which I still consider more accurate. I've been told I have small adult ear canals, and the blue ones are too small.

These are the best high fidelity earplugs you can get without having them moulded to your ear canal. It is literally like turning the volume down, rather than altering the quality of the tones in different ranges (bass, treble). The only downsides are not related to the product specifically: They're easy to lose or misplace (not because they fall out, just because they're small). They get earwax on them. Problems you'd have with any earplugs.

I'm in the habit of wearing these all over the place. Concerts, bars, street fairs. They're a great way to save your ear drums without sacrificing the sound quality.
