June is around the corner, which means so is the Festival season. But whether you’re a Loveboxer or Glastonburian, the Earplug Shop calling on festival goers to make 2009 the year that they take positive ear action and avoid long term hearing damage!
Online PR News – 20-May-2009 – – June is around the corner, which means so is the Festival season. But whether you’re a Loveboxer or Glastonburian, the www.earplugshop.com is calling on festival goers to make 2009 the year that they take positive ear action and avoid long term hearing damage!
Sound volumes easily exceed 85dB at concerts, which is the level at which serious ear damage can set in. Tinnitus, which is a constant, painful ringing in the ears making it difficult to sleep and causing dizziness and loss of equilibrium, is just one problem which can very quickly occur at these levels and is irreversible.
This is why DJs like Brandon Block and Danny Howells now wear specialist musician earplugs when they are in clubs and at festivals. And why the Earplugshop is offering some of the best on the market today. Its current favourite in terms of quality and value for money is the Etymotic Research ER-20 High-fidelity Earplugs.
They reduce the volume by 20dB but don’t fuzz out the sound of the music – meaning revellers can practice safe sounds until the early morning.
Prices start from £12.49 and can be ordered online at http://www.earplugshop.com/shopping/categories/musician-earplugs/0/etymotic-research/er-20-high-fidelity-earplugs/.
Follow the Earplugshop’s advice and make sure you pop some protection – ear protection – in your festival kit.
