Why Professional Musicians Really Should Wear Effective Ear Protection

“The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders say that regular use of effective ear protection devices, such as ear plugs and ear muffs, is the best way to prevent NIHL. These devices are commercially available from reputable suppliers like Ear Peace, who have developed a range of products to give the right kind of protection for individual needs. These products are recommended not only for musicians and those whose work expose them to loud noises, but also for fans of concerts and loud music.

The article further states that musicians need better education on preventing NIHL, particularly because any loss of hearing could affect a musician’s livelihood. The best ear plugs choice will depend on the amount of noise the user is often subjected to, which could then determine the level of Noise Reduction Ratings (NRR) they will need. An ear plug’s NRR is usually listed on its label to indicate the amount of noise the unit can block out.”
