Musician Monitors & Custom Earbuds

These precision in-ear monitors will be music to your ears at every performance, every time.

To perform your best, you need to hear your best. Stage performers are routinely exposed to hearing damage both from amplifiers and the ear monitors that must be turned up to potentially harmful levels just so that they can be heard above the music. Inside-the-ear musician’s monitors replace traditional wedge-shaped monitors with precise, isolated sound delivered directly to you, so that you can stay in tune and perform your best.

Today’s professional musicians know that the superior fit and sound quality of in-ear monitors provide clearer sound and effective sound monitoring at much lower volume levels. This means you can hear and perform your best while protecting your hearing from the prolonged exposure to loudspeakers and from damage to your hearing — one of your most precious resources as a musician.

 

Custom Hearing Protection Products

Custom-molded earplugs offer a degree of comfort and sound protection that you will not find in generic earplugs.

For Riders, Rockers, Shooters, and Everyone in Between

NIHL happens in all situations from concerts to recreational sports, from your work environment to your personal life. The best kind of hearing protection plan for you will depend on your lifestyle. There are different styles of hearing protection depending on what you need. We offer protection for:

• Musicians
• Hunters and shooters
• Motorcyclists
• Concert and sporting event enthusiasts
• Listening to music through your personal player

Benefits of custom protection:

  • A custom mold helps ensure your hearing protection stays in place and offers a secure fit.
  • They are designed to retain accurate frequency response, so you’ll hear the full range of sounds — just at a reduced volume.
  • They are vented to allow sound to pass both ways, which means the sound of your voice won’t reverberate inside of your ears like it does with most earplugs.
  • You get specific, measurable protection with precision-engineered filters that offer the most natural sound available, and a clear signal that is not muffled.
  • Custom molded from medical-grade silicone, these plugs can be worn for extended periods of time without discomfort.
  • Several models offer replaceable sound filters so that you can select the level of sound protection you need for the situation with 10, 15, 17, 20, 26, or 27 dB sound reduction.

Custom-Fit Monitors

Our custom-molded in-ear monitors are fitted into medical-grade earmolds that are comfortable for extended periods of wear and form a superior acoustic seal to give you just the sound you need. Precision drivers, integrated crossovers, and discreet cable connections make these professional-quality audio monitors second to none in terms of sonic quality, all in a package that is unobtrusive and will never stand between you and a great performance.

Custom Earbuds

Media and music are more accessible than ever, making earbuds and headphones essential. With the rise in technology, it’s no surprise that there’s a rise in hearing loss. According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), 13 percent of Americans ages 12 years or older have hearing loss in both ears.
Think about when you turn up your headphones. It’s probably during your favorite song, or to block out background noise. This common theme is what really hurts your hearing. With custom earbuds, you don’t have to worry about that annoying background noise; their secure, custom fit allows you to hear what you want to and blocks out what you don’t want to hear. Noise-canceling headphones are also a good option.

Plus, you can pick the colors of your technology, which adds to their appeal!

How to Protect Your Hearing When Using Earbuds

There are other ways to reduce the effects of loud music on your hearing.

  • Be conscious of your volume (most listening devices allow you to set a warning when you’ve turned up the volume to a possibly harmful level).
  • Be conscious of how long you’re listening to your music and at what volume.
  • Don’t believe the myth that certain music is more damaging than others; it’s all the same. What really matters is the decibel level and the length of time you listen.
  • Try the 60/60 rule — listening to your headphones or earbuds at 60% volume for 60 minutes at a time.
