- Overall Opinion
- Jes has been using the 2 / 3 years.
his side, nothing wrong it was just ready own.
on the other hand, reliability side is another matter. In normal use, after 6 months a filter broke. In the galley, Protac has started refusing to take collateral, accusing me of having walked on.
Great discussion with voice prosthesis, which re-examines the caps, no trace on it (no I told them nothing special, I place them in their bag, transports them into a pocket and not a bag, and I use too noisy to sleep in if necessary).
Briefly, after discussion, Protac finally accepted the warranty but the replacements were again broken in the same place a year and a half later: At the thin end of the filter that uses selected with silicone molding. It is poorly sized or poorly they performed, which generates a molding overstress on the filter - both are possible - but in the end the product is unreliable.
- Overall Opinion
- I said that I bought primarily produced by attenuators in Insono Protac.
- How long have you use it?
I received my Pianissimo a week ago.
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No attenuator to measure. But for years I was so used to universal attenuators that I stopped counting (more than one hundred maybe ?)... foams, rubbers, resins, wax and cotton ... I tore the ear openings more than once with plugs too big.
I managed to get used to my listening attenuation "anti-linear" produced by attenuators in high quality foam. I was quite satisfied in terms of protecting the ear ... I had no idea the difference!
Having come to enter the professional world of sound, it took my mind to invest in bespoke attenuators.
-Comfort, comfortable to wear, do not move (even a circle pit!)
Actually linear-attenuation, one can easily work with.
Even with-25dB is any with such precision, snap your fingers in an isolated environment by wearing Pianissimo immediately gives the tone
-Time ... 1 week for an appointment with an audiologist for fingerprinting, two days travel prints by mail, three weeks of manufacture, 3 days of travel products by mail ... a bit frustrating.
-Some small pain on the left ear (probably a small defect), but nothing dramatic, I quickly made abstraction.
-The attenuation of-25dB continues to appear to me inadequate. In big acoustic sound as at home.
- How would you rate the quality / price?
At first, taking into account the security provided to my ears, in comfort, the implementation technique for the production of these products, the price of about € 145 seemed justified.
Then get in the mail two things ridiculous, I had pretty bad ...
And I was pleased with the linearity of the attenuation (it should also be a time to get used to a real low attenuation on which plugs universal n'influent virtually not at all).
Finally, I realized that the comfort provided influenced my lifestyle (less fatigue at the end of a live, and after just one week, I felt healthier ... incredible!) I I realized then that the price was ridiculous.
And then ... our hearing is priceless! We can not afford to mistreat a fragile thing and brings much happiness.
- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Without any hesitation! Except that I would look elsewhere first, just to find a higher linear attenuation (-30 / -35 /-40dB).
I highly recommend it to anyone with enough plugs changed and wanting universal experience of hearing protection while enjoying the mix of the sound engineer who will be glad that the mix is not ruined by plastic caps;)N / AN / AN / A
- Overall Opinion
- No, they are neither aborted fetuses or accessories .., finally, brief. They are molded silicone earplugs tailored to an attenuation of 25 dB in a rather linear. they are in -9 and -15 dB, but there is no longer the same reference (I quibble).
I use them for eight months, I have tried any other model.
Value for money: huge price dispersion according to the audiologist. Starting € 170 on average lower. But it's super useful.
Qualities: We leave again (rock noisy but very good anyway) without ears whistling, fresh and (finally 'not exaggerate), hearing before the same again. Impressive. It also applies to other noisy activities.
Limitations: it is far better than all the solutions like earplugs, headphones, etc., for mitigation. But hey, it's supposed to be super-linear and in fact, it is almost, but it is not entirely neutral: the sound is slightly less warm. For it is against a little better defined: I can better analyze the sound, distinguishing intruments with than without.
Another thing: a feeling of being in an aquarium, a little disconnected from others. It's strange, it bothers a little at the beginning and then it did.
I would do this choice: Having tested anything else, I can not answer. However, -25 dB are well suited for a rock band, whatever it is, I think, from the moment he is a drummer a bit noisy (I'm not talking about extreme metal, I'm really talking to a drummer who does not know down at a jazz drummer for example). For me it was a necessary investment: the train things were going, I would sourdingue forty brushes. So voila.N / AN / AN / A
