EarPeace high fidelity ear plugs offer a less obtrusive way to protect your hearing from overly loud venues in Los Angeles.

It isn't just concert venues and nightclubs in Los Angeles that are overly loud. Theatres and theme park shows and rides are also significantly louder than in other parts of the country. They are often over 95 decibels, which can permanently damage your hearing after just half hour. So if you're planning on spending any time at live performances or theme parks in Los Angeles, you might want to invest in a pair of earplugs.

A lot of people don't like using foam earplugs because they mute music frequencies unequally, so you lose the quality of the music. EarPeace natural skin tone ear plugs are designed to protect your hearing while faithfully letting the quality of music come through. 

Pros

  • Protect your hearing
  • Enjoy the full quality of a performance
  • Multiple skin tones available
  • Come in a key chain carrying case
  • They come with a spare.
  • They really work.

Cons

  • It can be tricky to grab the tiny handle to get them out
  • They're not really strong enough for noise levels over 95 decibels, which are common in LA

I have extremely good hearing. To protect it from the abusively loud music produced by all the deaf sound engineers in LA, I carry a pair of earplugs in every purse, camera bag and jacket I own. I've been pretty happy with the Leight foam ear plugs I've used for years. I can enjoy a play at the Pantages, a concert at the Hollywood Bowl or a screechingly loud movie with the bright pink and yellow buds sticking out of my ears. But when I tried the EarPeace ear plugs, aside from being much more inconspicuous, the quality of my listening experience improved dramatically.

The dual parabola - or double cup shape - lets the sound waves hit your hear in the same shape as if you were not wearing earplugs, to deliver better quality sound.

EarPeace ear plugs are made of soft hypoallergenic silicone that comes in three different skin tones. Because they're tiny, and easy to lose, they come in sets of three so that you have a spare. They have their own metal tube carrying case on the end of a keychain, so you can always have them on hand. It's a little bulky if you carry your keys in your pocket. I have one permanently attached to the built in key ring in my Scottevest and another in my purse.

As someone who attends a lot of loud entertainment events, and as a musician myself, my EarPeace ear plugs have quickly become one of my most prized possessions.

I don't leave home without them. I have to admit, though, that there are frequently circumstances where they are just not heavy-duty enough and I have to resort to ​foam for greater noise reduction.
