Protac Pianissimo S-20
much better than earplugs a good mix between the very expensive (150 €) and the first prize (€ qq). essential for a rehearsal.

Personally I sing and play guitar with no problem, I have no ears whistling after.

By against big flaw: they should be cleaned every time (I personally disinfected too) it's pretty boring but once to remove the hand it will take.
earwax accumulates it and a little itchy at times.

Indispensable for me

Protac Pianissimo S-20
Bought last weekend (APRS m'tre trs is afraid of Transmusicales ... 3 days later, a tired ears) I bought these plugs in a audioprothsite.
The price is reasonable (22 euros), sold a small pouch like "wallet grandpa" and a priori "Linari the attnuation" (gives-20dB) is guaranteed.

First test (simulation "laboratory" in concert ... not so) rather exciting: it's easy to almost comfortable (at least, far more than the foam stuff) was still in place and c ' is super effective: trs attnuation good overall but we still hear everything without deformation (at low cymbals, guitars vote ...).

I think I will return to the test ds-size ... but for now, I am convinced by this product ... remaining one-time user! If I had rpter high volume weekly and go even rgulirement concerts than I am dj caps would be molded directly!

PS: On my "plugs" I think the black plastic part (see photo above) is enjoyable replaced with clear plastic ...
Edict of 17/03/06: Test APRS-size long concert nights ...
Really it's super comfortable and just be ... dsagrable Small BMOL however, if the linear attnuation seems vritablement means a lot his own breathing and low rsonnent with which the bones of the CRNE ... A share has nothing wrong!

I use these plugs for occasional rock concerts, more regularly for rehearsals in band.

In both cases, it is amazing. Accustomed to BAB style army, the first time I put it, I had the feeling of having nothing on the ears. Except ... it's actually the sound down!

I bought a Depeche Mode concert at Bercy, where I could for the first time enjoy the music without ears assaulted. Just great!

The only flaws:
- My wife, who was particularly close ear canals, can not install them properly. A check before buying!
- ~ 20 db attenuation (that's a lot!). For more, casting becomes essential
- Always this gap in perception between the level of the sound down on the huge ears and feel the vibration of the bass that failed initially.

If we compare their response curve quasi-linear to all that is else on the market by cheaper, there is no photo. That's why I preferred this model (for a price cap "standard") compared to other entry-level models.

But if we reason value: I made 5 years ago to make a cast of 650 francs (~ 100 Euros) at the time. These plugs are much better in terms of balance and of their ease of use for about 25 Euros. What could be better?

It is now almost two years since I use these ear protectors (purchased late 2006). I use it in rehearsal with my band (rock, two guitars, bass, drums, and therefore quite noisy) and in concert.

These protections are very effective. They help maintain a listening line that respects the music listened to and they avoid the effect "seem to have the head in a jar" you may have with any single foam plugs.

In use, I noticed that it is better to drive them properly in the ear to maintain these qualities. Sometimes I repeat not in the press so as not to completely reduce the volume and immerse myself more in the mood of the group, but in this case, you lose their qualities and we are left with this bottle that distorts sound.

Volume level, I do not know how you lose, but I can tell you that after 2 or 3 hours of practice at full speed, I do not feel tired of hearing. My ears are well protected.

Comfort level, these protections require a little time to adapt. At first it does not seem very comfortable, but once in place in the ear (and a little wet so they fit better) and after a few minutes, they are easily forgotten. And use in use, it is the ear.

Of course, it will not suit everyone, some of them will never do (too narrow ear canal or a feeling of claustrophobia ...), it means to breathe, it's weird at first.

This is a very good product, reasonably priced and indispensable for those who make music, will live or canned regularly and who do not want to become deaf at age 30. Even in the subway, it helps mitigate the loud noises of the wheels on the rails in tunnels :-)

Among the defects (but none is unacceptable and does their intrinsic quality), these protections have a tip (black on the picture, but mine are plastic) and in the subway, you can quickly switch to a con with those things that are beyond the ear! But in rehearsal or concert, who cares!
Finally, the white shutters that are inserted into the ear tend to yellow slightly over time because of earwax, unless you clean them well after each use. Otherwise, after a moment, the tip slightly yellow, it does not go over and if you ever want to pay, it's just disgusting, even if you just wash them, but hey, it's not the kind of subject that often lends ...
