ER20 Ety Earplugs are High fidelity, Ready-fit earplugs

ER-20 Ety-Plugs – Ideal earplugs for MusiciansETY Ready Fit Plugs are the world’s highest fidelity non-custom earplugs. They reduce most noise to safe levels while preserving the clarity of speech and the richness of music. ETY Plugs are configured to replicate the natural response of the ear canal so that when sound enters the earplug, it is reproduced unchanged, the same as the ear would hear it, only quieter.

ETY Plugs are reusable. With heavy use, the material can weaken and could break. Replace every 3-6 months.

ETY•Plugs® are the world’s highest fidelity non-custom earplugs. They reduce most noise to safe levels while preserving the clarity of speech and the richness of music

* All ears are different. It is impossible to predict the size of an ear canal by the appearance of the outer ear, or by a person’s physical size, age or gender. Two sizes of ETY•Plugs fit almost 100% of ear canals. Recent studies of both fit and seal, conducted at Etymotic Research and an independent lab, showed that the smaller of the two sizes fits the majority of ears and is now designated as standard fit.

  • ETY Plugs are reusable, but with repeated use, the ear tips may lose elasticity. For best performance and retention, if you use your ETY-EarPlugs constantly, replace them every 3-6 months.

ETY-Plugs exploded view

ETY Earplugs use a tuned resonator and acoustic resistor to replicate the natural response of the ear canal. This unique construction, combined with Etymotic’s proprietary sound path, reduces sound levels evenly across the frequency range without changing the sound quality. Result: Music and speech remain clear, but quieter and safer.

ETY Musicians Plugs provide almost equal sound reduction (20 dB) across the range of hearing. Foam earplugs reduce the high frequencies, resulting in muffled speech and music.

ETY Plugs replicate the natural response of the ear, so sound quality is the same as the original, only quieter.

    Hi Pacific Ears,
    I’ve previously bought the standard ear plugs. My friends and I use them frequently at gigs/festivals. They’re a life saver and make a huge difference. I no longer leave events with ringing ears for days, plus it doesn’t affect the sound quality at all. They come in a small container which is super convenient and can be attached to a key ring. I’ve also just purchased the ear plugs for musicians, for a Christmas present. For such a small price, it’s definitely worth protecting your hearing. Shipping is extremely fast too. Thanks so much, would highly recommend.

    Last night I wore my ER-20’s for approximately 5 hours straight. I was at a very noisy pub and my ears were okay afterwards. A few weeks prior I had spent hours at the same pub and left with my ears ringing. With the ER-20’s in the pub was still loud but it wasn’t painful. I could hold conversations and no one noticed that I had earplugs in (the wee plastic tubs are hidden behind my targus – I had to google the name of the sticky out bit of the ear ). Excellent.

    Just wanted to say that I used the ear plugs for a couple of gigs last weekend and really enjoyed using them. I’ve never got on with performing with anything in my ears, but these were super comfy and still had clarity, which was great. Definitely going to commit to some in-ears in the future now. Thanks, Luke W.
