Earplugs for events

The roar of the home crowd chanting at a football game when their team is winning. The boom, crackle and hiss of fireworks on Bonfire Night. The thumping bass of the speakers in your favourite nightclub.

These are all things that make life great. But events can be so noisy.

Have you ever left a concert with ringing ears? Or found yourself yelling to your friends on the way home from a night out? Tinnitus and a temporary threshold shift, where you suffer from temporary hearing loss, can both be symptoms of hearing damage – which can often go hand-in-hand with exposure to loud noises at events.

But it doesn’t have to be this way, as noise-induced hearing loss can be prevented. So if you want to keep attending all those events you love while protecting your hearing, consider using earplugs for events.

Why you should use earplugs for events

It can take less than you might think to damage your hearing. Without hearing protection, damage can occur when you’re exposed to sounds of 85 decibels or more. Music festivals and concerts are usually around 97 decibels. At that level, it can take just 30 minutes before potential hearing damage if you’re not using protection – and it can happen even quicker if you’re standing right in front of the speakers, where the noise is more intense.

Nightclubs can be even louder, at around 100 decibels – and at that level, it can take just 15 minutes before you potentially damage your hearing. Plus, loud nightclubs are usually packed full of people which can cause some people to feel overstimulated and overwhelmed.

You get the idea. No matter whether it’s a party, live music, sporting event, or even a trip to a theme park, it’s important to protect your ears whenever you’re in a noisy environment.

Wearing earplugs at events means you don’t need to miss out on your hobbies and social life. But your ears will be protected, and wearing earplugs can be a big benefit for people who suffer from noise anxiety or noise sensitivity, too.

Why Loop Earplugs for events are your best option

Whether you’re looking for earplugs for music events, airshows, or sporting events, Loop has got you covered.

Traditional earplugs block out sounds – not an ideal solution when you want to experience all the excitement of an event. But Loop Earplugs are different. They filter sound waves rather than blocking them, which means that you can still hear everything perfectly – just at a lower volume.

Loop Experience earplugs offer up to 18 dB (SNR) and 7 dB (NRR) of noise reduction – and you can even get a further 5 dB of protection with the Loop Experience Plus.

Or if you want to take the edge off when you’re attending a noisy event, opt for the Loop Engage. They’re perfect for people who feel overwhelmed in busy places, offering up to 16 dB (SNR) and 10 dB (NRR) of noise reduction, or an extra 5 dB with Loop Engage Plus.

Both types of earplugs come with a selection of ear tip sizes so you can get the perfect fit for you, and the ear tips are made from super soft silicone. So no matter how long you’re out partying for, or how many extra minutes in the match, you’ll forget you’re even wearing your Loops.

What’s more, they look great too, with a choice of colours to suit every style. And when you’re not using them? Just wash them then pop them in their handy Carry Case, ready to reuse at your next event.

Here’s the damage

You know that ringing in your ears after you go out? That means you’ve hurt them.  

All it takes is 70dB. 

Prolonged exposure to anything at that level or above can cause hearing damage. Concerts, parties, nightclubs and sports events usually reach upwards of 90dB. That’s why it’s a good idea to get earplugs for live music, stadium sports and the like. You can keep going to them, and protect your hearing too. 

Are there actually any earplugs that are good for EDM events and live music? Or for sporting events? Yes, but don’t worry. You don’t have to wear earplugs that look like you’ve stuck a couple of cheetos in your ears. Or that block out so much sound you can’t enjoy the music. Or that are just, well, uncomfortable.
