Earplug Reviews

Take care!

Caution noise levels
As an audio enthusiast, there is one truly invaluable instrument that you need to care about: your hearing! The continuous exposure to loud sounds over an extended period of time will result in temporary hearing loss, possibly accompanied by tinnitus, a ringing, buzzing, or roaring in the ears or head. Both may become permanent over successive exposures. If you frequently attend loud concerts, you should consider hearing protection.

Perfect hearing extends to frequencies up to 20kHz. Check your audible range here.

The only reviews with exclusive online simulation

This section reviews various earplugs with different situations in mind, from sleeping in silence to protecting your hearing during loud concerts. Each review comes with a simulation that lets you hear the attenuation provided by a given earplug in a particular sonic environment: your partner's snoring, the party next door, a motorcycle engine, the constant rumble of a plane, the painful noise of a circular saw or hammer drill, the impact noise of a gun shot and - of most interest for our "audiocheck" readers - the sound of a club or a loud rock concert!
