As a musician, DJ or sound technician, you often find yourself surrounded by loud music, which means you run a high risk of sustaining hearing damage. Hearing loss has direct consequences for your ability to do your job or enjoy your passion. Properly protecting your hearing is therefore essential during rehearsals, performances and concerts. For professionals in the music industry, Alpine has developed the MusicSafe Pro, the most high-end product in our hearing protection range for musicians.
MusicSafe Pro earplugs are the only universal earplugs in the world that offer three different sets of filters. With the included gold, silver and white music filters, musicians, DJs and sound technicians have the freedom to choose between different levels of sound attenuation for various applications. These filters reduce the music volume to a safe level without compromising the music experience at all. The unique AlpineAcousticFilters™ only attenuate harmful sounds. At the same time, they do not affect the quality of the music and still allow the wearer to communicate with their fellow musicians at a normal level. It is like turning down the volume a few notches. This not only makes MusicSafe Pro invaluable during performances or in the studio, but also during concerts, rehearsals and teaching sessions. You can choose your own level of sound attenuation in any situation.
Gold filter: average attenuation (SNR) 22 dB
Silver filter: average attenuation (SNR) 19 dB
White filter: average attenuation (SNR) 16 dB
MusicSafe Pro earplugs are made of the special AlpineThermoShape™ material, which moulds itself to the wearer’s ears because of their own body heat. This means the earplugs are a perfect fit for the wearer’s ear canal and will always stay in place, which makes them very comfortable to wear. The thermoplastic material is hypoallergenic, which prevents an itchy sensation in or around the ear. MusicSafe Pro earplugs can be used more than one hundred times. They are available in two colours: transparent and black.
Alpine MusicSafe Pro earplugs come with a handy case in which to store the earplugs and filters. The case can easily be attached to a keyring. Every set also comes with a carrying cord that you can attach to the earplugs for when you are not wearing them. You can easily and quickly clean the earplugs with the included Alpine Clean, a disinfecting cleaning spray (5 ml). Cleaning the earplugs regularly will extend their life span.
The safe and statutory limit to which the hearing may be exposed is 80 decibel. Regular noise above 80 decibels will irrevocably lead to hearing damage. Official reports show that the limit of 80 dB is soon exceeded. For instance, at concerts, noise levels up to 120 dB can be measures. For rock musicians, the harmful noises are mainly produced by the drums and the amplifiers, whereas for classical musicians, their own instruments and those of others greatly affect their hearing. The following values shows how soon the maximum exposing time is reached:
|Noise level||Maximum exposure without hearing protection|
|86 dB||2 hours|
|89 dB||1 hour|
|92 dB||30 minutes|
|94 dB||15 minutes|
|98 dB||7 minutes|
|102 dB||3 minutes|
|106 dB||90 seconds|
Depending on your situation, the instrument you’re playing and where you are playing it, you can choose your own absorption. For instance, as a drummer, you’ll require higher absorption levels than when you’re a singer.
MusicSafe Pro earplugs last longer if you if you look after them. Clean them regularly using lukewarm water and a little soap.
The Alpine MusicSafe Pro earplugs have an exclusive Dutch Design. The AlpineThermoShape™ earplugs and the AlpineAcousticFilters™ are produced in the Netherlands.
