For those people who enjoyed going to concerts but were concerned about the impact the loud music would have on their hearing, it was about making a choice.

Now there are hi fidelity earplugs that protect your hearing while protecting the sound quality of the music.
Old earplugs, made mostly of foam, would muffle many of the highs and lows of the music distorting the overall quality.

Especially since that protection doesn’t get in the way of the music!
