Ear Molds & Hearing Protection
Musicians suffer not just from hearing loss but also a ringing in their ears and various pitch-perception problems. Many performing musicians use ear monitors to regulate the levels of sound they absorb on the stage while performing.
In-ear monitors are devices used by musicians to listen to music or to hear a custom mix of vocals and stage instrumentation for live performance or recording studio mixing. Depending on the quality of the fit and length of the ear canal, a custom fit in-ear monitor will generally provide somewhere between 25 and 35 dB of noise reduction. Musicians who do not need amplified playback in their ears may benefit from custom-fitted musicians’ earplugs.
