A large number of Musicians around Austin have discovered that Austin Hearing Services can provide high end professional Earplugs and monitors to meet their hearing protection needs.
Musicians have a unique need
Musicians have a unique need when it comes to hearing protection. They need to protect their hearing, but they also need to be able to hear their own music clearly, as well as hear other musicians’ music and voices while performing.
“I understand this all to well since I lost a large amount of my High frequency hearing due to not protecting my hearing. As a musician, I should have protected my hearing because it does not heal itself.” -Larry Bailey
Conventional store-bought ear plugs
Conventional store-bought ear plugs are great at providing hearing protection. However, they often provide too much protection for musicians, muffling speech and sound in the process. They make music and voices very unclear and unnatural to listen to.
Conventional hearing protection can reduce very high frequencies, but this amount of hearing protection is typically not needed for musicians.
Most musicians do not need maximum protection
Most musicians do not need maximum protection. What they need is mid- to low-frequency protection. This can be accomplished through ear plugs that are specifically designed for musicians.

Musician’s ear plugs come in both custom and non-custom options.
Musician’s ear plugs come in both custom and non-custom options. Ready-fit musician ear plugs can reduce sound levels by approximately 20 dB, enough to reduce harmful sound without distorting speech or music.
These types of ear plugs are deep in order to allow the earmold to seal within the bony portion of the ear canal. This deep fit reduces what is known as occlusion, a hollow or boomy sound in the musicians own voice that is sometimes experienced with lower quality ear plugs. These type of deep-fit earmolds are popular with musicians because of the quality of sound they allow them to hear while practicing and performing.
Musician’s ear plugs are not just for musicians.
They are also a popular hearing protection option for:
Disk Jockeys (DJ’s)
NFL football players
