Vibes earplugs


Senior Member
My kid is going into marching band and the director recommended "high fidelity earplugs". I had never heard of these, but bought some "Vibes" brand ones. When they came I tested them out with my drumset, and they are absolutely amazing. It really is like everything sounds normal, except not as loud. I'm really impressed. I wear in-ear monitors so I can play to music or listen to lessons, and they aren't that bad, but they do attenuate higher frequencies more. The headphones we have sound like an echo chamber, amplifying the low end.

Anyway, just thought I'd mention it in case others didn't know about them. I'll probably order another set and use it when I'm practicing without external input, at least until I get around to micing the drums.

I have the Ear-Peace brand, except mine are Zildjian branded. The little tubes down the middle allow all the frequencies through. Since I'm not in the rock drumming game anymore, I mostly use them at the gym where the music is often +90dB.


I just switched to Vibes because I read they were the most comfortable of the earplugs (aside from getting professionally fitted) and I agree. The round shape, plus the fact they come in 3 sizes, is by far the most comfortable earplugs I've worn.

I agree, the Vibes ear plugs are really good.
I have a couple sets of these. The more expensive titanium set is clearer sounding to my ears.
I like them for most things other than playing gigs (they cut the sound down a little too much), but seeing other bands play, rehearsals, or home playing they are great.

I also really like the Earasures plugs.
These for me work for anything, and bring down everything evenly.

The Earasures were less money, but still $40.
