    Default what do youo use to protect your ears when on stage ?

    Hi again ,

    During a set, of course,we all have a strong and solid headphones (i bought mine following the strong advices of the main website djtechtools).
    But when it s finished and you have to go here and there on stage because of the monitoring for example or you simply have to stay on stage for various reasons, your ears are very much exposed and I try to find something simple and light to protect my ears.

    So far, I found a company in France (where I come from) which can produce some earplug but they can not be attached (otherwise you lose the warranty) with a small wire or something similar and they are very very expensive (about $400 for a pair of earplug)
    On the other side, the guy told me you can put them and manage the prim filter so you can wear them during your set (and then you set your plugs at 0% filter) and when you finish, you set the filter at 50% for example to avoid to damage your little ears.

    Anyway, that was just an example so if you guys have some good tips, please don 't hesitate.

    Thanks ,

    Regards,

    Bviman

    Thx Djalexlaine but I would prefer something a bit more dedicated and surely linked so I can clip the main wire like some some headsets.

    I suggest a pair of these. You can find them in uk stores and are very cheap for how well they protect your ears.

    They keep the clarity of the music as well as cutting the volume level down by about 20 decibels

    Anybody use Big Ears? I have a buddy that's a rep and has offered to give me a decent deal on ear plugs.

    i'm accumulating earplugs from work, as they're used in an industrial environment i figure they should do the job

    Those look good but does that plastic bit on the end stick out a lot? Is it removable or something? It looks like it would touch headphones while wearing them.
