Glastonbury. Reading and Leeds. Download. Whatever type of music you’re into, there’s a festival for everyone.
And no matter what the music is, you’re sure to have the time of your life. You’ll listen to your favourite artists – and maybe discover some brand new ones that you love. You’ll dance for hours on end. You’ll share special moments with your best friends.
But there’s something else, too. No matter the festival, there’s a high chance you’ll leave with ringing ears.
Because it’s not just the music that’s loud at festivals. It’s also the laughing, cheering, chattering and singing of the crowd. It’s the fireworks at night. Organised DJ sets and impromptu late night singalongs.
Unfortunately, exposure to loud noise for a prolonged period of time can come at a cost. We’re talking about tinnitus, that annoying ringing in your ears. It often goes hand-in-hand with noise-induced hearing loss, which you run the risk of when exposed to loud noises.
And it doesn’t get much louder than music festivals. The average festival is around 97 decibels – and at that level it can take just 30 minutes before potential hearing damage kicks in. Ouch.
But don’t worry, we’ll let you into a little secret. There’s a way to keep your ears safe, without ruining any of the festival fun: festival earplugs.
Want to enjoy the full festival experience – without running the risk of hearing damage? Earplugs for festivals and raves are your new secret weapon.
Earplugs reduce the amount of sound that enters your ear canal, reducing both the volume and intensity of noise. That means that when you wear earplugs with appropriate noise reduction, they reduce noise to a safe level – so you can still make the most of festival life, but with less impact on your ears. You’ll enjoy your weekend even more, safe in the knowledge that ringing ears are a thing of the past.
Why Loop’s noise reduction earplugs for festivals are your best option
You go to music festivals to hear bands play. So you want to be able to hear every word sung and every note played – and it’s important that your earplugs aren’t a blocker to that. It’s important, then, to look for earplugs that keep the sound quality clear.
That’s exactly what Loop Experience earplugs offer, made for music lovers by music lovers. Traditional foam earplugs mute sound meaning music can sound muffle – not exactly what you want when at a festival or rave. But Loop Experience is different. These earplugs use a patented acoustic channel and mesh to filter sound waves, rather than blocking them out completely.
That means that the sound quality is kept crisp and clear – just at a lower volume. Loop Experience offers up to 18 decibels (SNR) and 7 decibels (NRR) of noise reduction, or you can choose the Loop Experience Plus to reduce the volume even more with a further 5 decibels of noise reduction with the Loop Mute accessory.
They come in a tiny Carry Case, your perfect festival companion. Simply pop them in your pocket or bum bag and you’re good to go. Plus, you can make your life even easier with the Loop Link connector cord. It keeps your earplugs safe around your neck, so they’re always within easy reach.
And if you think wearing earplugs at festivals will cramp your style, think again. Loop Experience earplugs come in a range of cool colours to match your look – plus they’re reusable, so you can wash and wear them again and again, at another festival or your next event.
