Pro Filter Ear Plugs Designed for Musicians
Winner Red Dot Award 2015
In 2015, Alpine Hearing Protection won the prestigious Red Dot Award for the design of their MusicSafe earplugs. The jury in charge of awarding the prize praised the “high quality and the innovative ability” of the product.
The Alpine Pro earplugs are an expanded model of the popular MusicSafe Classic.
AlpineAcousticFilters™ – Music Quality Remains Preserved
MusicSafe Pro is the only form of hearing protection for musicians that comes with three exchangeable filter sets, known as AlpineAcousticFilters, for low, medium and high protection. These unique filters offer selective absorption, guaranteeing optimal protection against dangerous noise levels while preserving outstanding music quality.
Because each filter can be exchanged, you are free to choose the appropriate level of protection based on the instrument you are playing, the type of music or your position on the stage.
One key advantage of the Alpine MusicSafe Pro filter earplugs is that they don’t make you feel isolated. This allows you to stay in touch with your surroundings, which can be a key advantage in a studio recording and any other setting where you want to ensure optimal performance.
AlpineThermoShape™ Material – Extremely Comfortable, Perfect Fit
MusicSafe Pro acoustic earplugs are made with a very soft, durable and flexible material known as AlpineThermoShape. Because of the warmth of the ear, the earplug adapts to the shape of the auditory duct and allows you to wear it with maximum comfort. If too big, your Alpine Pro earplugs can be easily adjusted until it’s the perfect size.
Why is it dangerous to go without MusicSafe earplugs or other hearing protection?
The safe and statutory limit on how much sound the human ear should be exposed to is 80 decibels. Regularly listening to noise above this level will cause irrevocable hearing damage, and official reports demonstrate that this can be far exceeded within a short amount of time.
For example, sounds of up to 120 dB have been recorded at concerts: rock bands are typically affected by the drums and the amplifiers, while classical musicians will be more exposed to their own instrument and those around them. Check out the following table to get an idea of how quickly the maximum exposing time is reached:
|Noise level||Maximum exposure without hearing protection|
|86 dB||2 hours|
|89 dB||1 hour|
|92 dB||30 minutes|
|94 dB||15 minutes|
|98 dB||7 minutes|
|102 dB||3 minutes|
|106 dB||90 seconds|
Which Filter is Suitable for Me?
There are a variety of variables that can affect which filter is the best choice for you. Think about your instrument, the type of music you’re playing and where you are playing it: a drummer, for example, will typically need higher absorption levels than a singer.
Alpine MusicSafe Pro earplugs last longer if you if you look after them. Clean them regularly using lukewarm water and a little soap.
