Hearing protection at festivals

You need hearing protection at a festival. Would you disagree? Please ask your doctor or read our article how little it takes for your hearing to be damaged. It’s not so much a question of whether you take hearing protection with you, but what kind. Do you already know which ones?
You’ll find a summary of everything you need to know about the different types of hearing protection in this article. 

Hearing protection at a festival, the options. 

Yes! Making choices. There are many different types of noise, and for each noise there’s different hearing protection. At a festival you only have to choose between two things. The right choice and the even better choice. And, if you don’t want to spend money, then there’s also the skimpy option. 

Cheap hearing protection
The Thone D1. A discreet earplug that attenuates most harmful sounds (treble). The music remains excellent, you are able to understand your friends and your hearing is protected. 

I’ve come for the music
De Thone M1. An earplug with a membrane, filtering all sound evenly (high/middle/low). The music continues to sound the same, you understand your friends better and your hearing is protected. Curious about the differences between the Thone M1 and D1?

I’m a cheapskate
Go for foam earplugs (noise-stoppers), they won’t cost a thing. As music lovers, we don’t sell them. But you’ll find them at a drugstore. You don’t hear any of the music, you don’t understand your friends very well, but your hearing is protected.

Being understandable at festivals.

“What do you say? I ‘m not wearing my earplugs.” At a festival, it’s mainly about music. But, it’s a nice bonus that your friends are also able to understand you when you tell them you’re going to get beer. We make hearing protection for festivals, we are against noise. Not against sound. On the contrary, we filter out the background noise. It makes you understand your festival friends better than you would without earplugs. That’s a promise, because it’s been tested.

Earplugs are annoying

This is often caused by the material used for the earplugs. Annoying earplugs are hard, your ear canal is sensitive. Our hearing protection is made from liquid silicone. That’s super soft, and it takes the shape of your ear. In addition, not every ear canal is the same size. If you have a small ear canal, the D1 will be the best fit.

It doesn’t matter. Both the M1 and the D1 are solid choices. It’s a personal preference. Consider your choice, because with a little care, these earplugs will last for years.
