Earplugs for Drummers

What do Dave Grohl, Roger Taylor and Lars Ulrich have in common? 

They’re some of the greatest drummers, you say? 

That’s right, but there’s something else: They all have hearing damage.

Eardrums and other instruments

There’s literally a drum in your ear.  

That’s right – it’s a thin flap of skin, stretched tight like a drum. Sound hits it which makes it vibrate. The vibrations get passed down to your inner ear.  

There are also tiny hairs that live inside your ear which pick up sound waves – turning them into electrical signals for your brain.  

In fact, there are many delicate instruments in your ear that work together to create the miracle of hearing.

But the problem is that these components are delicate. Components like the hairs in your ear can never recover.  

Ever.  

But what damages them?  

Loud noises for prolonged periods of time. And that includes music.

How loud are drums?

Anywhere between 90dB - 130dB. Being exposed to that for long enough can cause hearing damage.  

What a loss that would be. That would mean no more music.  

Does that mean you should put away the drumsticks? 

Not if we can help it.

Our earplugs for Drummers

Keep the rhythm going – with earplugs

One of the best ways to protect your ears is with drummer earplugs. But the wrong kind can be a problem.  

Dave Grohl suffers from tinnitus and hearing damage. He doesn’t wear drumming ear protection.  

Why?

“The problem that I have with it is that it removes you from the natural atmosphere sound…I have little…ear holes and those things, when I put them in, they just pop out. And I don't want to look like a praying mantis with these things all over my head. I wanna go out there and go nuts."

Musicians like Dave (and you) need earplugs with the right features – which is exactly why we designed Loop Experience Plus. They:

Sound good

They mimic how your ears function so you get natural sound, at a safer level too. No muffled music for you. 

Look good

You won’t “look like a praying mantis”. Loops are discreet, have a stylish ring design and fit neatly in your ear. You can wear them with confidence.

Feel good

These earplugs won’t pop out, whether you're performing on stage or headbanging in the crowd. With Loop Experience Plus you get ear tips in different sizes, so you can find your perfect fit. They’re extremely comfortable too.

We think Dave would approve (if he knew about us). 

  • “Practicing drums with the Loop Earplugs has been great. They actually stay in my ears.”

    - David G.
  • “These are THE ONLY ear plugs I want to wear anymore. The music actually sounds better and isn’t deafening. I’ve sent them to everyone I come across. They’re incredibly comfy.” 

    - Sara Y.
