Disposable and re-usable earplugs, covering a range of attenuation specifications.
In today’s media production world, many occasions arise where high noise levels present a physical (or mental) health risk - in this case in the form of damaged hearing manifesting itself as deafness and tinnitus: conditions for which there is no cure. As more attention is focused on Health and Safety at work we offer a range of products which may offer protection in environments ranging from loudspeaker testing establishment’s factory visits, to camera operator’s positions at rock concerts. Applications will, no doubt, be found elsewhere, such as party political conferences.
A special type of earplug is the Alpine Musicsafe, these offer user-selectable levels of attenuation, and thus allow full perception of ambient sound, preserving special awareness and assisting musical performance.

MusicSafe earplugs are reusable, and are available in two versions. Musicsafe Pro are supplied with three sets of filters, coloured gold, silver and white, to give different attenuation rates to suit the listening environment. Musicsafe Classic are supplied with two sets of filters, gold and silver. Attenuation characteristics are detailed below. A storage pouch and insertion assistance tool is included.
