We all love music, right? If you don’t love music, please contact me immediately because I am going to send you some suggestions and we will fix that as soon as possible. Dapper Plugs are the premium choice for high-fidelity earplugs that will help you comfortably listen to music for years to come.

“But why would I wear earplugs that block out the music? Loud music sounds better!”

That’s where you’re wrong. Most music venues and music festivals have to play their music much louder than what is considered safe, and this actually has a negative effect on sound quality. When artists and producers are mastering tracks, they fine-tune each and every sound so that they are balanced and can work together to create your next favorite song. When music is too loud, you can’t hear all of the nuances of their hard work. By wearing high-fidelity earplugs (as opposed to the disposable foam ones), you can hear the music at the volume at which it was intended to be enjoyed.

“I’m young and my ears work fine right now, so why should I wear earplugs?”

There are very small hairs in your air that vibrate from sound waves. If these hairs are damaged, they can never fully heal, causing permanent damage. Imagine you are given a car at the age of 20, and you have to drive it for the rest of your life. You’d want to make sure you’re taking very good care of that car, right? Your ears are no different.

If you won’t listen to me, listen to Mayo Clinic:

“A common cause of tinnitus is inner ear cell damage. Tiny, delicate hairs in your inner ear move in relation to the pressure of sound waves. This triggers ear cells to release an electrical signal through a nerve from your ear (auditory nerve) to your brain. Your brain interprets these signals as sound. If the hairs inside your inner ear are bent or broken, they can ‘leak’ random electrical impulses to your brain, causing tinnitus… Tinnitus caused by short-term exposure, such as attending a loud concert, usually goes away; long-term exposure to loud sound can cause permanent damage.”

“If the music is too loud, I’ll just use the disposable foam ones. What’s the big deal?”

On top of being uncomfortable and harming the sound quality, disposable earplugs harm the environment. Disposable earplugs are made of
polyvinyl chloride or polyurethane, both of which are derived from fossil fuels. And once you throw those earplugs away, they have the potential to get out in the enviroment where they won’t biodegrade for many years and may be swallowed by land and sea creatures as they mistake the bright-colored earplugs as food.

Love your ears as much as you love music, and bring Dapper Plugs to your next concert, music festival, or the next time your boss is yelling at you.
