Vibes High-Fidelity Earplugs

Loud music will eventually damage your hearing. Wearing foam earplugs, on the other hand, obliterates clarity by muffling treble and letting through lower frequency bass, in large defeating the purpose of going to a show or concert in the first place. Vibes High-Fidelity Earplugs instead promise to lower decibel levels in your environment without unpleasant changes to any particular part of the audio spectrum. They’re far less expensive than custom earplugs and stay in place thanks to one of multiple size eartips, reducing sound levels by about 22 dB via an acoustic filter and inner sound tube. They’re also reusable and relatively subtle, with a crystal clear outer sound tube that sticks out just slightly from your ears (and doubles as a grip to pull them out after the fact).
