Ear plugs

jezaB 13 Aug 2003 17:21

I noticed that neil spent $250 on ear plugs
sure its a good investment, but i don't exactly have that much right now.

Anyway, does anyone know where would be a good place to purchase some decent ear plugs, say up to $40, that don't spoil the sound and allow normal speech to be heard.

A friend suggested www.headphones.com.au (based in perth), and specifically the ER-20 plugs, made by www.etymotic.com They're $35 and seem quite good. Has anyone used these? Are they any good?

Anyway, any suggestions of where i can get earplugs from somewhere local (melbourne) would be great.
(and neil, whats the site of the place you bought from? i deleted the email)</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

recently purchased a pair of moulded earplugs. They are moulded to fit my ear and cut 15 db off sound. It is a great relief at gigs not to be deafened. You can hear people talk without any problems, the only problem is you tend not to talk loudly enough when talking to people because your foldback has been turned down.
They cost $250 approx, so they are not cheap. You can get cheaper ones, but these are great.
If you are a musician onstage these would be one of the best investments you could make. If you are a fan and are tired of being deafened then these are the go. You can contact Telex Hearing Centre on 0396545570 or check www.earmonitorsaustralia.com</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Sounds good, but steep... I tried a $55.00 pair from Pro Audio and they were really just a fancy .50 cent ones. Not good, but i guess thats these are for real. Will have to save first</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

I ONLY use the cheap nasty 50c plugs. As a bassist, they rule, they block out the needless rubbish midranges from my 2 guitarists and let me hear the vocals, drums, bass and guitar harmonics perfectly.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

I know this is getting a little old, but for those still interested.....
I am a drummer, and I use the ER-20 earplugs. They are actually manufactured by E.A.R Inc. in the US, although they are marketed under different names here. I find them to be quite good, and certainly good value, and you can get them cheaper than $35.00 I am thinking of stocking them at my studio for $25.00. They will cut out a little too much if inserted tightly into the ear, but I have found they are rather flexible in how much cut they give, by simply loosening them a touch. They are rated at a 20db cut.

See: http://www.earinc.com/shop/default.php?cPath=26

An alternative if nothing else.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

WHO KNOWS!!!!</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

If you stock them for $25 I'll definitely come to your studio more often... which studio are you?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Southern Cross Studios in Bayswater now has ER-20 ear plugs in stock. $25.00 per pair.

Sorry,.... generally don't like to 'plug' on forums such as this, and I apologise!</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Good old Bayswater, I use to catch the train there when I was working at the Siemens Building....... Anyway enough day dreaming.
If you cannot make it for the local pick up of a pair of ER-20s. Try www.earjobs.com.au where you can get them for $27.50 including postage. </title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
