Earplugs for concerts

People sometimes ask me for advice on photographing concerts. This ranges from the objective to be used, how to be published or how to improve the technique.

These are all good questions ... But the best advice I can give to any photographer concert is simple: put on earplugs for concerts!

If the bass speakers at the front of the stage are already shaking the ground, stirring the bones, and helping you digest your beer with their sonic vibrations, imagine what they are doing to your ears.

According to the WHO, the sound levels of rock concerts reach an average of 112 dB, at which the safe exposure is measured in minutes. Not 20 or 30 minutes, but one or two.

It won't even allow you to listen to a full song in the pit, let alone the entire concert. With repeated exposure, all of those uncontrolled decibels result in permanent hearing loss.

That ringing in your ears, it's not a big hornet, it's tinnitus.

FAQ: Frequently asked questions about earplugs for concerts.

After reading all of our top tips and knowing all the considerations to consider when shopping for the best concert earplugs, it's time to answer some of the burning questions.

How are concert earplugs different from standard earplugs?

Standard earplugs are usually foam and are only used to block noise. Concert earplugs are high fidelity earplugs that take into account the frequency of the ear to ensure the original quality of the music, while being quieter. In other words, they enhance the sound and protect you instead of blocking it and affecting your music experience.

Why should I wear earplugs for concerts?

We are not here to scare you, but the WHO (World Health Organization) conducted a study in middle and high income countries and found that almost 40% of young adults and adolescents are at risk of NIHL because of the harmful noise levels in their free time are.

There are MANY people who could permanently damage our ears. Once you lose your hearing, it cannot be restored.

How do loud noises damage the ears?

Over the years, experts have found that prolonged exposure to noise levels of 85 dB and above can lead to hearing loss. Since most venues and clubs have 100 dB, you can do damage without hesitation. The maximum time to hear noise at these levels is only 15 minutes. If you often go to a concert, festival, or nightclub for hours on end, you need to protect your hearing.

Are foam concert earplugs good for concerts? 

Foam earplugs can protect your hearing, but block sound instead of protecting it. Foam earplugs block sound frequencies and produce muffled sound, while earplugs produced for concerts only reduce the volume. Although you tend to buy foam earplugs because they are much cheaper,

What level of noise reduction is required for concerts?

A pair of earplugs has a noise reduction rate of 10dB, which protects you for up to two hours. The higher the better, of course! Especially if you want to stay longer than this period. However, choose at least one pair above 10dB to ensure your safety.

What does the legislation say about the noise level at concerts in 2020?

At concerts or festivals, the noise level can reach 102 dB if the standard is met. Longer exposure times to this intensity can lead to irreversible hearing damage.

To avoid damage to the ears, theoretically we should not be exposed to a sound level of 80 dB for more than 8 hours. This exposure time is halved for each 3 dB increase in volume.

In other words, if the rules are followed and the volume is constant at 102dB, we shouldn't be exposed for more than 4 minutes without a break if we don't want to damage our ears.

It is therefore important to protect yourself in order to maintain your hearing!
