There are few experiences that match the sheer raw power of being front and center for a huge rock concert. It can be exhilarating. But without sounding too much like your mom, it can also be far more dangerous than you realize.
Hearing damage often happens from exposure to prolonged loud noises over 85 decibels (dB). Rock concerts can hit 115 dB, depending on where you're standing. And if you've ever come away from a show with that muffled ringing sound in your ears for a few hours or maybe even a few days after, that's tinnitus. While it's often temporary, it's also auditory Russian roulette — because the effect can become permanent. And while we're on the subject, exactly how high do you crank the music on those earbuds?
The World Health Organization estimates 1.1 billion 12 to 35-year-olds face irreversible hearing loss as a result of exposure to loud noise. You can avoid becoming a statistic with some foresight and protection like the Eartune Live U Universal Ear Plugs.
Eartunes are engineered to retain all the clarity of your music, just at levels about 20 decibels lower than the unfiltered sound. Their proprietary acoustic filters reduce the volume of the world around you, yet modulate the sound waves, maintaining the sound in the medium frequency spectrum while expertly filtering out high and low range noise and distortion that can damage the fine hairs of the ear.
In the event that fashion moves you more than preventing hearing loss, the Eartunes are actually so small and unobtrusive that others can hardly tell you're wearing them. The plugs are made from 100 percent hypoallergenic silicone, come with two sets of ear tips to fit your particular ear size and were made to support maximum comfort during prolonged use. Just throw them in their accompanying small aluminum carrying case and pouch and you'll always be ready to enjoy a concert, sporting event or other loud environments safely.
Right now, you can save $4 off the price of a pair of Eartune Live U earplugs, only $20.99 while this offer lasts.
