Our Story

Loop team

Did you ever come home from a night out and heard that ringing sound in your ears? You’re not alone! According to the World Health Organization 1.1 billion people risk hearing damage due to damaging levels of sound at nightclubs, festivals and concerts.

Earplugs are the best solution, but why don’t we wear them? We’ve heard many explanations: the sound quality is bad, they’re uncomfortable, earplugs look stupid and we totally agree! That’s why we took a different approach.

Upgrade your nightlife

Our mission is to upgrade your nightlife while protecting your ears. We want you to get closer to the music, dance until sunrise and party harder. We want your nightlife to be epic!

To achieve this, we had to make earplugs desirable. By focusing only on nightlife, we’ve created something unique. Loop is the first earplug that you want to wear at night! With your support Loop will become a success that every party-goer, festival enthusiast and concert freak will enjoy.

From concept to reality

Our story started with Maarten coming back from a party with a serious ringing in his ears a few years ago. This lasted several weeks and made him search for the best solution. After testing every earplug it was obvious that not one was great for nightlife.

Dimitri always partied with earplugs. Most likely because his mother works in hearing protection. He agreed with Maarten that a better earplug was needed. They came together and Loop was born. Their challenge: making an earplug for nightlife that you want to wear.

We started with a thorough market research at nightclubs, festivals and concerts. This showed that the sound, looks and comfort of earplugs desperately needed an upgrade. Together with universities, 3D-printers and product developers we created and tested more than 30 prototypes. Every iteration brought us closer to earplug Nirvana.

Together with the best partners in the industry we’re proud to redefine what an earplug for nightlife should sound, look and feel like. We’re now part of Start-it, the biggest Belgian startup incubator. Our headquarters lie in Antwerp, the European capital of fashion and nightlife. With a motivated team of 6 we’re working day and night to make sure you have epic nightlife.
