Concerts and other live music events can have dangerously high noise levels. These can be high enough to cause permanent hearing damage and tinnitus. This syndrome is called noise-induced hearing loss and is entirely prevented by wearing ear plugs.
So which are the best ear plugs for concerts? ZenPlugs are ideal because they are effective at keeping noise out and stay in well during activity. You can connect them on a cord so you don't lose them if you drop them on the floor. Each plug is molded to your ears and so is very comfortable as well as being fitted to the gentle contours of your ear canal, keeping them in place.
ZenPlugs cost far less than other types of earplugs which are moulded. This is because they can be made at home from a kit in just a few minutes. This dramatically reduces the time and costs involved. The plugs are made from a durable thermoplastic which lasts for years. If you drop them on the floor at the concert and they are trodden on they are strong enough to survive. They are also antibacterial, reducing the number of mucky germs you get in your ears from other people in the mosh pit.
Unfortunately noise-induced hearing loss is on the rise amongst young people. Portable music players and loud music have been blamed. Previous to this the incidence of this condition has decreased. This has been put down to health and safety law being introduced to protect people in factories and production units. It is now law that those who are exposed to dangerous noise levels are provided with earplugs.
If you are going to a club, concert or other live music event make sure you take a pair of ZenPlugs Ear Plugs with you to protect your hearing.
