Thread: Ear Protection

  1. #1

    Default Ear Protection

    Hey guys I want to get the Beats Detox Pro for DJing but I need to protect my ears. What do you guys recommend I do? Should I wear earplugs under the headphones, can that be done? Thanks.

    If you can afford the Detox headphones, you can probably afford a pair of custom molded musician's earplugs.

    Otherwise, you could get some ETY-Plugs and wear them under your phones.

    The custom plugs are about $180...and well worth it. I was fitted by an audiologist, and it was the same price as the home kit. I will NOT go back to even ETY plugs.

    And do you just wear them under your headphones?

    Yes. The custom plugs fit under headphones...even if you keep the headphones on all the time. The ETY plugs can be used under headphones...but are not comfortable to use like that.

    We need to take a step back and ask why, in gods name, are you buying those headphones?

    They are IMHO useless in the Studio - but durable and honestly quite suited to DJ'ing live*.

    Just horribly horribly overpriced.



    *Despite every other DJ thinking your a tit for buying them in the first place

    Serioiusly...

    I know he didn't ask for an opinion on the headphones haha, but we gotta let 'im know!

    People need to just forget all these commercial brands, buy a pair of athm50s or something of equal quality, make sure they're flat and move on with their life.

    I've had my m50s for a year and a half and I can't imagine I'd need anything better unless I suddenly came up in the production game lol (unlikely)

    Which plugs did you get? I thought the custom Ety plugs were $400-$500 including audiologist appointment and manufacturing.

    The brand is Westone. I have the 15dB filters.
