The Best Protection for your Ears

There is a lot of emphasis in the DJ community about protecting your ears. Hearing loss is a very real thing for DJs. Constant volume at a high dB can cause irreversible/permanent damage to your hearing.

The idea of having a permanent issue to your hearing, especially as a DJ is a nightmare. That’s like an airline pilot losing their eyesight. Below are the best ear protection for DJs according to DJs from a recent Reddit thread.

*These are the earplugs pictured in our cover photo. There are many DJs who do use Dubs, but they seem to be targeted more towards someone attending a concert rather than the actual musician/DJ. They are reasonably priced and rated pretty well.

Do you use hearing protection that’s not mentioned above? Share in the comments! We’d love to hear about them.
