Ear Protection for Musicians
Hearing damage is an occupational hazard for many musicians — the prolonged exposure to amplified music can take a heavy toll on the ears. Traditionally, musicians relied on monitors on stage to project the sound they were producing back to them so they could hear what they were playing.
Advancements in technology have led to the development of a type of ear protectors for musicians called in-ear monitors (IEMs) that serve a dual purpose of sound monitoring and hearing protection. The most effective earphones for musicians provide a custom fit that ensures they remain securely in place during a performance.
