Tone down the noise!

These earplugs are very well made and fit nice and snugly in your ear canal. It blocks out loud noises. I have hearing issues and these allow me to protect the hearing I have left. Highly recommended and I will purchase again.

Works great for band

Bought these ear plugs to help reduce the impact of the decibel level in my community band.  They really help.  I can even hear myself play my instrument better.  Added bonus.  Recommend the ear plugs for any musician.

Don't work for me

Unfortunately, these don't work for me. I got two pairs of these and let my friend use one at a concert recently. For me, the left ear was fine, but the right ear was painfully uncomfortable (yes, I tried switching plugs between ears) and I couldn't achieve a good seal. It seemed at first as though they attenuate only enough to make a concert not painfully loud, but after a couple hours even that wasn't true. On the other hand... After the concert, my friend commented on how great the ETY-Plugs were and said she was going to buy a pair. So, 2 stars, rather than 1.

Tips seems a bit small. Does work when adjusted.

I had to play around with the fit to get the proper combination of noise canceling and sound clarity. When working sound did not seem muffled. I'm not sure how that compares to fiddling with scrunched up paper tissues.

Blocks it out!

I work events that sometimes has a live band, and it tends to get beyond a safe sound level. No job is worth your hearing, so I just pop these in and I can tolerate the noise. They are comfortable too, so happy B&H staffing helped me choose these.

I would buy this product again

Great way to protect your hearing while staying safe

I work as a field service engineer and spend a great deal of time in noisy and dangerous environments. These earplugs allow me to protect my hearing while also maintaining my awareness of the heavy machinery around me. I've been using Etymotic headphones for years now and find them to be very comfortable and these ear plugs are no exception. The flanged ear tips need to be inserted fairly deep to make a good seal though and not everyone will find that comfortable. The lanyard that comes with the ear plugs is well designed. The string is big enough that it doesn't gets lost in your shirt and soft enough that it doesn't gets itchy. The box is a little flimsy and I broke the hanging hole on my first trip but it gets the job done. These are solid options if you need ear plugs but need to hear sounds in your environment. They need very little maintenance and are relatively cheap if your prone to losing or breaking things like I am.

Can these be easily worn under DJ headphones? Is the lanyard detachable?
Asked by: Christian
The ER20 lanyard is detachable but based on what I have been informed by some customers, the protruding stem makes it difficult and very uncomfortable to wear with over-ear headphones on the outside.
