Hearing Loss is no joke. It is not uncommon for house and techno events to play music at dangerous levels. There are a number of veteran DJs who have suffered hearing loss, both from years of exposure and a number of isolated incidents. Examples include Lil Louis, Larry Levan, and Paul Oakenfold.

Dubs Earplugs Hit the Market

Why don’t we wear earplugs? This is the question that inspired the team behind Dubs Earplugs. They addressed the question with three clear answers, and developed a revolutionary earplug all for the low price of $25. That wasn’t a typo in case you were wondering. Protecting our ears from long term damage is essential, and the Dubs may be the solution.

Dubs Earplugs utilize both high and low pass filters to optimize sound quality, as opposed to traditional earplugs that often degrade sound. Maintaining sound quality is obviously at the forefront of delivering a product that is targeted at the musical community. So they confronted this misconception about quality, but there’s still the awkwardness of the design and aesthetics with older foam plugs. Let’s not beat around the bush here, foam earplugs are just awkward and most people won’t be caught dead with them in. Dubs Earplugs had a solution for that too.

The Dubs are constructed out of high quality material and are designed to sit comfortably in the ear. At first glance, they seem to have some character and hold some stylistic value. Great sound quality and a slick design for the low price of $25? Can’t beat that investment to protect our ears.
