Inexpensive custom earplug molds have been available for a while for industrial use, Ahead is just repackaging the same ear molds that you can buy on Amazon for $10 and jacking up the price to $30 because these are for musicians. Search for "radians custom molded earplugs".
I just bought the Radian self mold plugs on Amazon last week. Yeah, they were around $10. They came Friday.
These are exactly what Ahead is selling in the previous link.
These are great. Easy to make, cheap, easy to insert and take out....
Just tried them with the band yesterday in my basement. Since it is a basement, it's basically a loud environment, but still sounds good since it's a large area.
The sound is really good with these plugs, and they didn't cause any distortion for me.
These are way better than any other plugs I've tried--especially the foam type.
Looking at the reviews a few in, they seem to be kinda bad for this product.
The people probably didn't read or follow the instructions very well.
You need to cut each piece of putty in half (easy in the little container) and kneed 1/2 the white, and 1/2 the colored piece together to make 1 plug.
It will cure/harden then. Someone said they had goo in their ear for a long time. Must not have read the instructions and just plopped it plain in their ear.... that would feel creepy...
It is IMPORTANT to clean your hands and ears BEFORE you handle the stuff.
That way, it can't be contaminated, and will set up and cure correctly when it's in your ear. I used Isopropyl Alchohol.
Worked great and really easily for me.
I'm making another set tonight for a back up.
Thought I'd pass it along.
After using these for a while now, these plugs are great. easy to put in and take out, comfortable, and the sound is very even. I can hear everything great with these, even people talking at pretty much any level.
