Music-induced hearing loss occurs when exposing your ears to a lot of noise. Sound levels are measured in so called decibels (dB): starting from 80 dB sound can be harmful to your ears and at 100 dB you can be at direct risk of permanent hearing loss.

At live music venues, clubs and festivals the volume is often higher than 100 dB. This can have terrible consequences for your hearing, such as a ringing or whistling noise in your ear or even deafness. Several case studies show that about 10% in Britain, 10% in the Netherlands, 18% in Germany and 15% in the USA, have reported some form of hearing loss caused by loud noise.

But… How to prevent it?


Hearing loss may be prevented by using special ear plugs like Thunderplugs.

They are high quality reusable ear plugs which have a music filter that maintains the sound quality while reducing the volume. This ensures your can enjoy your favorite live event while your ears don’t receive any damage.

They meet all quality and safety requirements defined by the EU and the US, and are tested and certified according to EN 352-2 standard and ANSI.
