Tuning pianos without hearing protection often leads to hearing loss and tinnitus.
These musician/high fidelity earplugs offer the hearing protection piano tuners need with up to 21 dB (NRR 16 dB), while providing the full spectrum of audio so as not to interfere with the quality of our work.
- Every order comes with two shell sizes, so they fit every ear.
- The discreet design is mostly invisible to others.
- Pull tabs make them easy to insert and remove.
- Made with hypo-allergic soft silicone for all-day comfort.
- Lightweight aluminum case is included.
Our opinions of the Eargasm and Earaser brands of earplugs (a comparison):
Sound attenuation: Both work amazingly well.
Comfort: Earasers have the edge over Eargasm, and are a bit more comfortable to wear all day, due to the "hearing aid" shape. They do require the left and right plugs go to the correct ear, and in the correct orientation.
Fitment: Eargasm wins this category, since they come with two sizes of shells, and expand to fit the ear, unlike the Earasers. This benefit of knowing they will fit your ears comes at the expense of comfort.
Storage: Eargasm includes an aluminum storage canister with key ring. The Earasers come with a plastic case, but the aluminum Stash Can is an option that is not included.
Visibility: The Earasers are probably a bit less visible to others, but the small size makes them potentially easier to lose if dropped.
Value: Both are winners. Eargasm has a lower price and includes the aluminum storage can. Earasers are so comfortable, it's easy to forget they are in. We've used both, and they both work well, and hopefully this comparison will help you make a decision.
