    Wasn't sure where to put this so please move if wrong

    Im after some decent ear plugs (but aren't silly amounts in cost) for when I goto gigs/clubs/festivals. It'll mostly be used at clubs abroad.

    I've seen these: https://eggzearplugs.com/collections/accesories

    And they seem pretty decent, I'd probably look at the DJ ones.

    Has anyone had these? Or can recommend something else?

    Thanks :)

    I use flare audio ones on the bike and they're great, wish they'd been about when I worked in clubs.

    Comfy for hours at a time and keep the clarity while cutting down the noise/volume.

    Cheers man.

    Any particular model or does searching flare audio bring up one type?

    Those eggz earplugs look very similar to the set I use when playing bagpipes, and they certainly knock the decibel level down from excruciating to just painful.

    Well they are a bagpipe suppliers branded set, they could well be eggz or similar. They come in exactly the same type of metal carry case.

    Another vote for Flare Audio Isolates.
    However I find after extended use they can get uncomfortable. Might just be my ears though.

    Assuming the original poster is not having to work in this environment I find it bizarre someone would pay good money to listen to what they know will be excessively loud music and yet be asking what devices to purchase to blank it out... What next, blindfolds for horse race fans to quell the excitement, and balls and chains for dance goers to stifle excess movement? Very odd! ;) Should people be taping their mouths up when going to the pub?

    Proper ear plugs just lower the volume while still being able to hear all the frequencies.

    I love live music and often end up practically on the barrier. What i don't like is the ringing ears for the couple of days after the gig. I've started using Alpine partyplugs.
